Aggression: When a dog displays the threat of harm to another individual or dog – involving snarling, growling, snapping, biting, barking, or lunging, we call this aggression. Aggression can be due to guarding territory or protecting a family member, resource guarding, fear, frustration, prey drive, or pain. NOTE: It is impossible to guarantee complete fixes of major behavioral issues such as dog aggression/people aggression. We can give you control and better help manage these issues.
Reactivity: Commonly confused with aggression. Reactive dogs overreact to certain things or situations. Reactivity can be due to genetics, lack of proper socialization, or a combination of the two and is typically driven by fear. Reactive dogs may have specific triggers, such as men with beards or hats, small children, or a leash.
Distractions: Distractions can be sounds, smells, other humans, dogs, or other stimuli that detract from a dog’s ability to remain focused.
Marker: A marker is just a stimulus that pinpoints the behavior used to earn a reward. It can be a clicker, a verbal cue (“Good Boy!”), or other.
