    Theo is reactive and it can be challenging to walk him. Fortunately if I walk him with my other two dogs, they usually don’t join in the barking. Still, it is easier to walk him separately.

      I totally understand, even if the others don’t bark it still feels to me that I can better focus on Bailey if we are alone! And I think reactive dogs need more one-on-one time than other dogs, too!

    You hit it right on – we have a reactive guy and boy can he get things going. I like how you do separate walks – and again, you are right, the biggest adjustment is on our time. Thank you for caring for your pups with such a beautiful, loving heart! They will blossom (ours is slowly)!

      Thank you Rebecca for this incredibly sweet comment! The progress indeed is slow, but it’s our bond that matters most! I never bothered to look for quick fixes, because I know that changing an emotional response takes time. But it’s the most rewarding moment, when we do see change! Sending much love to you and your reactive boy! <3

    Mr. N is reactive but he’s the only pup so he gets all of my attention. When we had a foster, I could walk both of them usually but he didn’t care about other dogs.

      I didn’t even know that Mr. N is reactive until your latest blog post! Good for him, that he gets to be the only pup! 😉 Bailey needs a lot of my time and attention so I know this part would be easier if it was just her, but overall I think the pack really influences her positively!

    Bailey sounds a lot like Henry. We are still working on his leash aggressive behavior. It doesn’t happen all the time. He only takes offense to some dogs. Great information, thanks.
