“As long as there are no other dogs around, my dog Boo is great on leash. But my dog goes crazy when we meet other dogs.”
Her 85 pound black lab is almost the perfect dog until he sees another dog on a walk. That’s when she says that her dog goes crazy when he meets other dogs. He’s not aggressive he just doesn’t know his own strength. My dog pulls on leash with excitement to greet the other dog. He’s so strong it’s like he doesn’t even know I’m on the other end of the leash and it’s all I can do to keep from falling.
Her problem was her equipment. Because Debbie hadn’t done any obedience training with Boo around distractions, his flat buckle collar wasn’t providing her with any control when approaching other dogs.
Then we introduced Boo to the Gentle Leader. To Debbie, the difference was nothing short of miraculous! The most shocking improvement was how instantaneous the ease of handling was for her as she and Boo approached another dog. In this world of “fast fixes,” this was “instant calm and control” for Debbie.
It just couldn’t get any better than this.
Since this was so visual, I thought a video would allow you to better see the problem before and the solution afterwards and how much of a difference it made for Debbie. Here’s your video:
So, come tell me on Facebook what you think? I truly hope you found answers and hope for helping your dog. Did you think the fix would be this easy?
