We met with Tucker again tonight to work on his reactivity to other dogs. Most dogs will act out towards other dogs because of fear. They are acting all scary to keep the other dog away. But Tucker's case was a little bit different. The neighbor dog is a very active German Shorthair Pointer, and Tucker was getting overstimulated watching this dog run. By removing him from what he wanted (the other dog) every time he overreacted, he started to settle down.
