The Good Dog Minute 9/26/13 Sam: severe leash pulling/reactivity & out of control in the house!
Hey all, here’s the update on Sam, the big pit/Am bulldog mix, that came to us all the way from Arizona for training/rehab for his severe leash issues of pulling and reacting to other dogs, as well as being out of control in the house (going after the cat, bullying the other dog, being uncontrollable). Sam went home yesterday, after two weeks with us, and his folks did two separate go-home sessions with us to ensure they were ready to continue all of the awesomeness back on their home turf. I think this video shows is a great example of how dramatically a dog’s state of mind can change in just a few weeks. It also shows us using the e-collar in the house and on the walks, which demonstrates the power and leverage of using a remote collar to help everyday owners, who have very powerful dogs, to balance out their relationship and to create a harmonious situation.
