Publisher's summary

What happens when you are walking with your dog and see a dog off lead? Does the presence of the strange dog unnerve you? Do you become tense? Does your dog tense up?

If this is you, read on.

Living with a reactive dog can accidently create a reactive person and a cycle of negative experiences begin. There is an answer though! With understanding comes positive change. It might not have always been this way; perhaps walking once triggered positive emotion. Maybe we were happy until something specific happened; for example, we met someone with an unfriendly dog that attacked ours or made them really scared. We, too, could have felt scared, then that fear grew over the next few walks, until we felt it the moment we saw another dog in the distance. Maybe we, too, began to experience the negative emotion with every walk, it became a habit and we even experience it whilst thinking or remembering. Nowadays, we don’t even have to be out with our dogs to experience the fear and frustration, we can get angry at home, on our own.

When we walk our dogs the two of us become one emotional, physical, and psychological state. If we are relaxed that’s amazing. If we are tense, we become unified with a self-reinforced cycle of tension. We address this self-reinforcing cycle here, in great depth, to take you both from reactive to relaxed, for lasting and effective results. Welcome to your journey of understanding your precious influence, the wonder of your dog and the amazing individual, powerful force you become when the two of you truly connect.

I love Sally gutteridge

I've read or listened to almost all her books and they're just great all around very helpful and informative especially since I'm taking classes to become a dog trainer. her books have also helped me help my large reactive dog I also love that she's kept the same person to read her books.
