Denver Dumb Friends League: Understanding Reactivity in Dogs


December 21, 2020

Learn why your dog reacts in certain situations and ways you can help lessen his need to react.

Reactivity is not aggression. Aggression means intent to do harm and though reactivity can look
aggressive in nature when your dog is barking and lunging on leash, there is no intention to do harm.
Many reactive dogs live well with other dogs or play well at dog parks, because reactivity is just your
dog reacting to a specific stimulus. Dogs can be reactive to a variety of different stimuli like people,
other dogs, and bicycles.
