Leash Aggression | We're talking about leash aggression on dogs.
Leash Aggression is a common issue that can be challenging to manage. On this episode we offer insights and tips for managing leash aggression. What is Leash Aggression Leash aggression, also known as leash reactivity, is a behavior in which a dog displays aggressive or fearful behavior when on a leash. This can include lunging, barking, growling, and snapping. It can be triggered by various factors, such as fear, anxiety, territoriality, and frustration. Causes of Leash Aggression  There are several reasons why a dog may develop leash aggression. Some common causes include lack of socialization, past traumatic experiences, fear of other dogs or people, and frustration from being restrained on a leash. We'll discuss each of these factors in more detail and provide examples of how they can lead to leash aggression. Managing Leash Aggression  Leash aggression can be challenging to manage, but it's not impossible. We'll provide tips and strategies for managing leash aggression, such as avoiding trigger situations, desensitization and counterconditioning techniques, using positive reinforcement training, and seeking the help of a professional dog trainer or behaviorist. Preventing Leash Aggression  Preventing leash aggression is always better than trying to manage it after it has developed. We'll discuss how to prevent leash aggression by socializing your dog at a young age, exposing them to new experiences and environments, and using positive reinforcement to reinforce good behavior.   Zen of Dog Ownership Podcast by Dog Owner's Academy Be the owner your dog deserves™ Wanna Support?   Share this episode on your social media.

Being "present" when we are with our dogs
On this episode, where we're discussing the importance of "Being present" when we're with our dogs. It's easy to get caught up in the distractions. There are teams of very smart people getting  paid big bucks to keep us distracted. But when we're not fully present with our dogs, we miss out on important cues and behaviors that can help us understand and respond to their needs. That's why being present with your dog is so important.  When you're fully engaged in the moment and not distracted by other things, you can better understand and respond to your dog's needs and behaviors. You can pick up on subtle cues and body language that may indicate how they're feeling or what they're trying to communicate. Create a deeper bond with your dog and improve your communication. Which is essential for being the best owners we can be.   Zen of Dog Ownership Podcast by Dog Owner's Academy.
