I just wanted you to know that something you taught during the class really helped with a problem I have been unable to solve. When I walk my dogs together – or even one of them alone – and one of
them sees another dog walking on the other side of the street, she goes nuts – leaping, barking, pulling on the leash. Once she starts, my other dog will join in. I don’t stay on the same side of the street though with a dog approaching us. They just don’t handle that well right now and there’s no point in giving them the opportunity to practice bad behavior.

She did it again last night. I used one of the techniques you taught in class. Suddenly, she’s sitting still and quiet, and I am able to wave and say hi back to the guy with the dog on the other side of the street. So thanks!
