Wildlife Chasing and Sighthounds with Alisa Healy KPA CTP, LFDM-T

Sarah often recommends never allowing dogs to chase wildlife so that they don’t build a reinforcement history for this behavior pattern, but what about the dogs that are hardwired to chase? Do the same principles apply?

Alisa Healy is the owner and trainer at Dog Forward Training, where she specializes in helping people raise puppies for an active lifestyle through training and socialization services in the Chicago suburbs. She is a Karen Pryor Academy Certified Training Partner and a Licensed Family Dog Mediator and also writes for several large dog blogs. Alisa also shares her life–including off leash hiking–with two sighthounds and has a unique perspective on the subject.
