And a Little About Dog Reactivity

So, your dog is reactive and you’re really stressing that Dog-To-Dog portion of the test on the Canine Good Citizen.

You are not alone.

Whether your dog is excited about other dogs or just weary, almost everyone preparing for the CGC wants to know: how do I teach my dog to keep it together when in close proximity with a stranger and their dog?

After years of administering the CGC test and preparing aspiring therapy dog teams for the real world of classrooms and hospitals, Crystal has your back on this one. In this episode, she covers where to get started with treating dog reactivity, what classes to look for while preparing for the CGC, and what unsuspecting part of the test fails people the most. Hint: it’s not the dog-to-dog portion.
