Here is a bully breed which was very reactive to the world around him. We are at the point where high distraction field trips are the next stage of training. This exercise was as much for Dempsey as it was for his owner. One of the best ways to create a confident, calm dog is to have a confident, calm handler on the other end of the leash. Positive control of the leash and knowing what to do are the foundation of a well behaved dog.
As you can see, all the hard work has paid off!! Both Dempsey and owner performed flawlessly when just a little while ago this wasn’t even possible. Great job!!!
