Reactive dog

We seek to help dogs that are excessively reactive (barks unnecessarily at other dogs or human beings and is spurred by environmental conditions, charge) become normal again. Dogs that are reactive are those who overreact to certain things or situations. Genetics, lack of appropriate socialization or a combination of both can lead to reactivity, and fear is usually the driving force. Reactive dogs may have certain triggers, such as men with a beard or hat, young children, or situations where the dog feels trapped on a leash. Here at Fraternity K9 working with reactive dogs is one of our specialties and, although we like to help rehabilitate dogs with this problem, we would like it not to be a problem so common. Many dog trainers agree that responsiveness is now the most prevalent behavioral problem and that the rate of occurrence is still increasing. There are many effective ways to rehabilitate a reactive dog, but the best strategy is prevention. Here are some tips to make sure you avoid reactive reactions in your puppy or adult dog. The most important factor here is socialization. Have you socialized your dog to big dogs? Socialize your dog like crazy. And then socialize a little more. A thorough and complete socialization is to give your dog a vaccination against reactivity. It's the ultimate preventative. Dog owners often think that socialization only applies to puppies. On the contrary, Socialization is a lifelong process and should be part of your dog's daily routine. Whenever your dog comes out of the house, you can socialize by offering positive experiences around new dogs, people and situations. For example, suppose you are out walking with your dog. A construction crew works on the street and they have a heavy, heavy exercise and other noisy equipment. What to do? Most people walked the other way and avoided the situation - why risk scare the dog? It is certainly an option, but there is another one and it is excellent. Take advantage of the opportunity as a real workout scenario, grab valuable treats and work your dog. As you approach the scene, watch your dog closely to determine his level of stress.

And finally, if you find yourself in a situation

where you fear that your dog will

react negatively - KEEP CALM!

At the first sign of stress, stop and pay a lot of attention and food. You condition your dog in a classic way to associate the chaos of construction with positive things. Classic conditioning is a very simple technique in which we help the dog form positive associations with things and people. Classic conditioning can be used in all situations in which your dog is shy, worried, fearful or uncertain, something in his environment - and it is a cornerstone of socialization.This brings me to another important aspect of this problem - the identification of triggers at the beginning. Virtually all dogs will develop sensitivity to something (or many things) in their lifetime. If these sensitivities are not addressed, they can become a total reactivity in no time with only a few negative exposures. What do I mean by sensitivity? Any type of adverse reaction - anxiety, fear, avoidance behavior, uncertainty, tension, etc. If you notice this type of behavior in your dog, you can smother it by identifying the trigger and conditioning it in a classic way. This is a simple, usually quick step that prevents the dog from forming negative associations and being responsive. Physical and mental exercise should also be mentioned here. If the dog does not receive enough stimulation, the accumulated energy will increase the likelihood that the dog will be reactive (rather than reactive). Make sure your puppy does a lot of walks and active games every day. Training exercises, practice games and smart toys will provide mental stimulation and should also be integrated daily. And finally, if you find yourself in a situation where you fear that your dog will react negatively - KEEP CALM! Take a deep breath, remember that dogs will be dogs and maintain a cheerful, light and playful tone with your dog. If you are tense and stressed, your dog will feel it and be more likely to react. You control your dog's behavior much more than you think!


“There are many reasons why your dog will begin to bark abnormally and excessively.”

Compulsive barking

We also exist to find out the root cause of abnormal barking and proffer ways to generally reduce and relief it. When you notice your dog barking uncontrollable at other, dogs, objects and even people, then know that something is wrong. There are many reasons why your dog will begin to bark abnormally and excessively. This could be as a result of stress or it could just be that the dog is seeking for attention. Whichever is the case, our team will rectify it and bring back your dog to a normal condition. It is as natural for a dog to bark as for a child to speak. So do not expect a dog to never bark. However, if the barking has become excessive to the point of irritating the neighbors, you must either move the dog away from the dressed areas, lock him in a soundproof room, or train the dog to stop barking. To stop the dog from barking, we must first understand the cause of the problem.

Let us explore the reasons for barking a dog:

Communication: Barking is a form of communication. If you listen carefully, there are different tones and different types of barking.

  • Intrusion: Dogs are territorial and protect against intruders. The duty of a watchdog is to keep the property. Naturally, he will bark to alert you of intruders when he detects an intrusion by people or dogs. The closer the threat is, the stronger the barking. When the dog is aggressive, he adopts a threatening posture, tail high and ears erect forward.

  • Reaction to noise: Some dogs bark when the car passes, when the doorbell rings or when the neighbor's dog barks.

  • Attention: Dogs bark because they want attention. They want something. They may be hungry or thirsty. They want to play outside. They want a treat.

  • Boredom: Dogs can be frustrated if they are confined to the same place for a long time or if they have been left outside day and night. Dogs are pack dogs and do not like to be left alone for a long time. If they are bored or sad, they will bark.

  • Fear: They bark when they are afraid, be it objects, people, places, other animals, or loud noises such as thunder and fireworks. How do you tell if the dog is scared?

  • Excitement: Dogs can be playful and enthusiastic when greeting people or other animals. It is usually a good bark, accompanied by swirls and sometimes jumps.

  • Health problem: It should not be forgotten that barking can be caused by deafness because they cannot hear each other barking. This could be due to age-related dementia.

  • Separation anxiety: Dogs left alone may suffer from separation anxiety. They present symptoms such as stimulation, depression and destruction.

  • Compulsive barking: Compulsive barkers bark just to hear the sound of their voices. They also often make repetitive movements, like turning in circles.

It is a natural instinct that a dog barks and we should not suppress that instinct.

When the dog is barking for a good reason, for example if someone is at the door or enters your territory, congratulate him. When you let the guest come in, you give the dog the order to stop barking. Put your finger on your lips and give the command "Calm" in a calm and firm voice. Train your dog to understand the word "calm".

However, if the dog is barking at the wrong time or for a bad reason, we should not let this problem continue. A barking dog becomes undesirable when the dog does not stop barking and such incessant barking disturbs the neighbors, especially in populated areas.

To solve the problem, find out what is causing the problem. If the barking is due to boredom, bring the dog to work every day. Play with at least an hour a day. If the barking is on the alert, give him enough attention by spending time with him. A dog is not a toy to leave alone; it is a living animal with feelings and needs affection and interaction. Spend time walking or running. Playing ball. Take a trip to the dog park. When the dog is tired, he will be calm. Send the dog to the vet for an examination as some medical problems can cause excessive barking. These problems can range from dementia, brain disease, senility pain. There are a few methods to solve a dog barking problem.

How to stop a dog from jumping up on strangers

Although jump in itself is generally harmless, it can, under certain circumstances, lead to health problems. Dogs generally have a tendency of jumping all around when excited.  Getting to see your dog jump over the couch can be disgusting sometimes especially when you have visitors. If you do not want your dog to jump on others, do not let him jump on you either. Your dog can not discern the difference. If you allow your dog to jump on you, he should not shock you when he jumps on every person who enters the house. The best way to limit this type of behavior is simply not to allow your dog to jump on someone; yourself included. This habit can be broken. All you need is time and ongoing training. This will be done if you do it effectively. Do not lose your temper, be patient with your beloved dog. If you don’t like all of this, we can get your dog start displaying the right manners within a very short period of time.

Why is my dog digging holes all of a sudden

There could be a lot of reasons why dogs dig holes. It could be as a result of problems of anxiety and separation that stemmed from their general lifestyle, not necessarily the state of the backyard. Your dog may be digging a hole for food or shelter. It's a natural conservation instinct. They can hear the sound of underground creatures and insects or feel something buried in the ground and dig holes to try to find them. This could lead to having holes at your back yard. Whatever be the case, we have all it takes to stop your backyard from being a spot where holes are dug every now and then

Dog nipping when excited

Puppies have very sharp teeth and know how to use them. If you have already received a series of puppy canines, you will know how much they can hurt. Of course, your puppy does not intend to hurt you intentionally. What begins as a game can quickly become a painful recreation. There are a handful of reasons why dogs and puppies nip. According to the US Center for Disease Control in Atlanta, Georgia, about a million people in the United States are bitten by dogs each year. The majority of victims are children aged 5 to 8; in most cases, mordant dogs were domestic animals. Dogs bite for various reasons. Dogs can bite or behave threateningly when they are angry, scared, agitated, over-excited or when challenged or seeking to protect. The first thing to deal with biting dogs is to discern "why" the dog behaved aggressively. If the dog was teased or felt threatened, the problem may not be with the dog. Instead, the blame can lie with anyone or anything that teases him or makes him feel threatened. Some dogs bite or snap at the hands of their parents when they try to take something from them.

Effective ways to stop biting dogs

When the dog tries to bite, the caregiver must act quickly by suspending it from its forelegs through the chain of its strangulation; at the same time, growl in a violent tone, "No bite!" The dog should be allowed to return to his paws before he shows signs of discomfort (usually within 10 seconds). Once mastered; caress and praise him. This process should be repeated each time the dog tries to bite. he must be obliged to respect your authority. Although this type correction may seem cruel, it is not. Healing the dog for biting by this means is much nicer than condemning him to death in the gas chamber because of injury to someone he has bitten. Inexperienced caregivers may have trouble correcting their dog this way; If this is the case, seek the assistance of an expert trainer. With our expertise, we will surely get to the root of the matter and turn your dog into a licker and not a bitter.

Dog aggression

Aggression is one of the most common reasons why pet owners seek professional help. But what is an aggression? Aggression is generally considered a threat to harm an individual, whether a human or another animal. There are many forms of aggression, and it is important to determine the cause of the problem so that the problem can be addressed appropriately. The aggression may be due to the custody of the territory or the protection of a family member, the protection of resources, fear, frustration, prey and / or pain. Aggression in itself displays in different forms in dogs and puppies. And there are different ways of treating and handling each form of the aggression. One could easily and mistakenly diagnose the wrong form because aggression is a complex issue in dogs. With our years of experience, by just looking at your dog and puppies and studying their body language, we could easily tell you the form of aggression they are manifesting.
