Leash Reactivity with Tyler Muto

Length: 6 Hours, 1 Minute, 18 Seconds • Released 06-02-2017

Rating: 4/5 Stars

If you dread going for walks with your dog because he or she lunges, barks, and pulls every time they see another dog or person, then this DVD was made for you.

Tyler Muto is a dog trainer from Buffalo, NY who specializes in helping families overcome challenging behaviors with their dogs. Tyler and Leerburg are very excited to bring you this DVD on leash reactivity, as it is one of the most common behavior problems that Tyler receives calls about.

This DVD will be tackling the specific issue of leash reactivity, which should be distinguished from dog-aggression in general. However, many of the principles and theories that we will be covering relate to aggression in general and thus the information contained within this course will be valuable to anyone who works regularly with dogs.

Throughout the DVD, we will be taking a very systematic approach to managing reactive behavior. When designing this course it was very important to me that we didn't just give quick fixes, but rather that each dog/handler team develop the skills, techniques, and understanding necessary to achieve lasting results. The course begins with a variety of foundation exercises which will help both the dog's and humans get comfortable with the various mechanics and skills that will be required of them later in the course. Then we will move into a theory portion of the course, which will help each student to better understand the motivation underlying their dogs' behavior, and how to work with those motivations rather than against them. Lastly, in the last half of the course we will be successively adding additional tools and skills to our practice until each team finds the approach that will work best for them.

First, I have a leash reactivity problem called 'frustrated greeting' it is fairly common. The dog isn't trying to make other dogs go away, the dog is trying to meet other dogs in a very boisterous way. It is still very dangerous, it needs sorting out. Mentioned, but not touched on in the video at all.

Must be a fair percentage of people watching this six hour video hoping you would get to what is a very common problem. Six hours and you only covered one side of the reactivity problem.

My dog will walk down the street past all sorts in a competitive style heel, my dog will do down stays and sit stays when asked with distractions. She just won't walk down the street on a leash past other dogs without doing everything and I mean everything to get to the other dog. Perfect until a dog appears, then build up, then barking and pulling in the direction of the dog. Then I correct the dog with a prong collar. This plays out over and over. Doing turnabouts, dog responds well to heel training. Looks the part until this happens which is actually worse because there is no warning for the people around you.

How do you know your dog is friendly I hear you ask?

I live in Northern Ireland, people don't take leash laws very seriously here. My dog might be the only dog I meet on leash on some walks. She meets the dog with open pawed excitement if it is brave enough to come on over. This happens often on public, sometimes main roads.

Failing a lottery win I am stuck with trying to fix it from my my end.

Oh, on exercise, five mile runs a few times a week at a moderate pace. On rest days at least two hour walks. Janice Gunn style flirt pole sessions (when I do this I use a flexi-leash professional attached to a custom made four inch wide neoprene foam lined belt. The dog stays with me fine even when dogs are close). Long line fetch works well. So she is very well exercised. She just won't behave when walking near other dogs on leash.

The information included in the video is very standard and might be of use to some people in some situations. The reason for the one star is that the video did not pertain to leash reactive dogs at all. This is very important. Not one leash reactive dog appeared in the video on leash reactivity and honestly most of what was featured is available online for free.

I am sure Tyler is a great dog trainer, but honestly are you really trying to say you have zero access to really leash reactive dogs? Are you really saying your training system is so good you couldn't find even one working example of each kind of reactivity? Hats off, if that is the case, I would have thought certain genetic traits can't be trained out completely or in some cases at all.

If you have access to those dogs then show what you actually do to solve, lessen or manage the problem and if it isn't pretty or politically correct at least it would be honest.

Hopefully something to think about for future titles.

I am finding the information very useful as I am about half way through the video. I would just like to have more content downloaded so it doesn't catch up to itself and I can watch more than 15 seconds of information at a time. I have a new computer so age is not the factor.

Mr Muto has very good information. I just wish the demonstration dogs were ACTUALLY leash reactive to see what that would look like to have a dog lunging and barking obsessively at another dog.

I will come back and edit my review as needed, but just partially through this video, I am impressed and appreciative in Tyler Muto's presentation, specifically with demonstrating on different types of dogs with various levels of excitability. I appreciated the addition of dogs like Favor the Malinois, as I don't often see squirrely dogs incorporated into examples. Additionally, Tyler provides clear instruction with in-depth explanations of his choices and movements with the dogs.

Hats off to Tyler! This video is great - it goes into detail so you understand what you’re doing and why you are doing it. Tyler uses untrained dogs (I’d say reality for most of us purchasing this) in the videos which allows you to see how he troubleshoots when it doesnt go as planned. Thank you!

Great trainer, but content focused exclusively on dogs that react out of fear/insecurity. If that's what you've got, go for it. If you have a dog like mine that is NOT afraid of dogs and people, well, it's not covered at all.

Plenty of useful and practical information, however, a lillte bit too many repetitions, and too little real-life exapmles of work with dogs. Instructions were clear and detailed, but I'd expect more videos instead of lecture-style talking.

As usual, fantastic video from Leerburg!

I have already learned more excellent information in the first half hour of this video than I have in the hundreds of dollars I have spent on training classes.

This was exactly what I'd been looking for. Clear, concise, build from foundation to advanced methods, and extremely practical. I have a lot of resources on addressing reactivity in general, but leash reactivity specifics are often thin elsewhere. That this program is specifically to address leash reactivity is why it is so darned great. Thanks for another super-helpful and immediately-useful program.

I was considering a 4 star. Because seemed like excessive talking. Reviewed my experiences and what I learned. Definitely 5 stars. Thorough, clear and effective. Maybe too much for a true beginner, but well worth the time to review again and again as required. Thank You
