Not just a one time chance encounter – This is the most recent of a dozen such encounters between THEO the Dog and LEONA, Leopard Gecko lead Actress from ‘The Geckoator’ Films. Working always with praise for this ‘Reactive Dog’, he has over time earned my trust for these brief closely supervised visits with his only 4 legged friend! He was introduced to Leona the day he came to live with us. He learned that she is an acceptable member of his family. We know that there is no cure for his Reactive Behavior. He is muzzled if out in public. Encounters with other pets are avoided. He meets people or crowds fine under most circumstances, that is unless they happen to be running/jogging towards him or in an uncertain circumstance such as a lone person approaching on a trail. His reactivity is intense and immediate as soon as another pet approaches close or if a wild animal is spotted nearby – even insects! So I often hold Leona, sitting beside THEO on the couch. He looks her way comes close for a sniff, listens for my praise, then rolls back over to go back to sleep.
