Community • A private community for dog parents dealing with fearful and reactive canines.
If you’re in search of a community that can provide you with tried and tested tips on how to care for a fearful and/or reactive dog, this could be the Facebook group for you. Members can share their success stories, ask questions related to their current issues, and get free advice from dog trainers.
What is the criteria for joining?
People interested in joining the Facebook community must share: 1) how long they’ve had their fearful or reactive dog; 2) what their biggest struggles or questions are with regards to working with their dog; and 3) what they’d like to achieve with their dog.
Who’s behind it?
Dogkind, an online service that provides positive reinforcement-based dog training. They specialise in fear, aggression, and reactivity.
What makes this group unique?
Dogkind team members (who are also dog trainers) share free training and management strategies through posts, videos, and Facebook Live sessions. They do not approve of aversive training tools as well as the use of punishment for behaviour and dominance theory.
