Reactive Dog (Video Proof)

Today I was able to get the video camera in time to film Gilda's response to the Mail Lady (or anyone) coming to the front door. She is over-threshold as soon as she hears the mail truck half a mile away. It gets even worse when the doorbell rings! Notice how quickly she recovers once Gail leaves the porch.

The humorous thing here is that Gail was delivering 2 books today: 'On Talking Terms with Dogs: Calming Signals' by Turid Rugaas and ' Scaredy Dog! Understanding and Rehabilitating Your Reactive Dog' by Ali Brown.

Oh the irony!

Hmm, watching this makes me question thinking my dog is "reactive". She doesn't do this at all. I mean, she barks if someone is at the door of course. But not hyper like this. (My FIRST dog, years ago, DID do this -- funny, nobody ever even gave me the word "reactive" about her back then...)

But Ladybug; no this isn't here at all.

(BTW: those are the coolest 2-tone hardwood floors in your house....)
