//"Except...for when the other dog fixates on her, reacts or gives her stinkeye. THAT is the biggest challenge ever; getting her to keep her cool in the face of another dog going off on her. Might never happen...but we try."// sometimes, our dogs ARE RIGHT. Sometimes our dogs have every right to object to the other dog's behavior. know what i have sorted out? is, when facing other reactive dogs, THAT is one of my MOST SUCCESSFUL TIMES of all, to prevent a reaction. i know, go figure. but, that is when i find calming signals MOST effective. When i give calming signals to Bud when we are approaching a 'normal' dog, it's 50-50 if they work. BUT, when i give doggie calming signals, when we are facing a reactive dog, then my calming signals must make more sense to Buddy or something, but, that is when they almost never fail me. Apparently, my dog sees my doggie calming signals as being IN proper context then, lol. also, the video in reply #54 shows 2 dogs reacting, and offers an idea to try. http://www.dogtrickacademy.com/memb...-my-dog-aggressive-dog.4413/page-3#post-46622 STILL, I'M SO EXCITED FOR YOUR PROGRESS!!!!!
