We’ve been avoiding the seawall like the plague since Knox’s reactivity reached new levels. Now armed with an arsenal of appropriate reactivity tools (teehee, alliteration), we practice in 5 minute sessions for 30 minutes, up and down the seawall. Walking past, walking behind, walking in front.
More importantly, we make sure that every chance Knox has when encountering a dog is controlled and positive.
We recently realized that the parking lot nearby is adjacent to the popular dog walking seawall. With a chainlink fence between us and other dogs, with all the space for us to retreat or measure our distance using parking spaces, this has been the premium spot for us to practice.
