Loose Leash Walking Skills
In densely populated areas like Chicago, it is common for non-aggressive dogs to become leash reactive due to many factors. We can help you identify these triggers and give you tools to stop this behavior from escalating. The first step in this process is loose leash walking skills.
Some leash reactivity signs include:
- Pulling at distractions
- Not focusing on handler
- Lunging at other dogs on walks, in lobbies or elevators

Ryan, a native Chicagoan and dog trainer since 2012, has a passion to understand dogs with special needs and a commitment to help their families provide them with the best care and life possible.
As a trainer at K9 University Chicago Ryan focuses on rehabilitating dogs that are reactive and have specific aggressions or triggers. His work allows these dogs to become more confident and comfortable around other dogs and people.
This work is highly specialized and rewarding but also critically important in a city that has so many dogs living together in close proximity with distractions that can easily become reactivity triggers for dogs that may have been abused or not socialized.
Ryan runs our Social Rehabilitation Group for dogs that need to play away from the main daycare groups. He often brings his own dogs, all rescues; Zedah, a Dogo Argentino, Maya, an American Staffordshire Terrier, and Spyro, an American Bully, to help teach the other dogs how to successfully play and cohabitate in a group setting.
Ryan also works with clients offering Board & Train packages and private training sessions.
