A few things we constantly preach here are Confidence Building, Leadership/Guidance, Structure/Boundaries, and State of Mind. ~
Confidence building, helps dogs to overcome fears with your guidance. ~
Rules, such as no nonsense on the walk, or bullying of other dogs, sets a precedents. Expectations. Naturally creates structure and boundaries. ~
Working on dogs state of mind, state of calmness, along with leadership, guidance, and rules allows us to have a dog (Brix) who lacks confidence around other dogs, walk confidently in between two other dogs. One (Leo), who has attacked him numerous times in the house or on the walk. Another (Sarge), who is also reactive towards other dogs. ~
These three are all able to walk together.......yea......because of all of the above.
