Emotional Reactions

emotional reactionsFill out 1 form for each dog enrolled.

My job is to:
• Determine what is causing emotional reactions
• Unearth all the triggers for emotional reactions
• Develop a plan and help you implement a the plan that will change your dogs emotions to happiness or relaxation

Emotional Reactions History

To accomplish these tasks I need to ask a lot of  questions.  Answering the questions on this form before you start training has allows me to plan out the training your dog needs, so please bare with me.  

Answer the questions to the best of your ability.  

The more information I have regarding your dog’s history of emotional reactions the more I can customize the training for you.

Throughout, use these definitions to guide you

Happy Response = happy or relaxed, approaches with a loose body language
Indifference = doesn’t respond in any way (approach move away, bark, etc.)
Negative reaction = any degree of upset (even just a little) moving away, biting, hiding, vocalizing

Don’t discount any negative emotional reactions (throughout your dog’s life). If it has happened I need to have information on it.

There are times in which your dog is upset and has an opportunity to bite and times in which it is upset and does not have an opportunity to bite.

Examples of Opportunities to Bite (when you can not or would not be fast enough to intervene)
• Dog is loose in the house and a person walks in
• The dog is on leash in public and a person comes within leash distance.

Examples of no opportunity to bite
• The dog is too far away from the person
• There is a barrier between the dog and a person.
