Dogs may react to visual triggers like people or dogs behind fences or glass.
Leashes, doors, crates and gates that restrict access can also spark frustration.
More mental and physical activity reduces boredom and channels energy positively.
Work on commands like “leave it,” “look at me,” and “sit-stay” to teach calmer responses.
Bring high-value treats on walks to refocus attention when reacting to fences or windows.
Gradually get closer to triggers like fences while praising and rewarding relaxed behavior.
Changing these behaviors takes time and diligent training. Stick with it!
