What is the difference between a reactive dog and an aggressive one? Should we use the term reactive dog at all, and what does it matter anyway?
We see a lot of information on how to cope with reactivity in dogs but we see few on understanding why it happens.
Why does my dog react to some people and not to others, when there is no obvious difference between them?

The neck and throat are sensitive areas, the windpipe is placed under pressure when a dog pulls on the collar, the natural reaction to feeling vulnerable in this way is to try and escape, hence more pulling.
