I have just come back from a fantastic walk with Eddie and realised somewhere along the way, I have now got an absolutely wonderful dog who no longer :

Lunges at other dogs
pulls like a train
reacts to horses
brings me home in tears
has to be walked AVOIDING ALL OTHER DOGS

and now we can :

walk where we want, when we want and actively seek out other dogs!
does not pull and we no longer use the dogmatic for either pulling or lunging
has fantastic recall
walks past the horses in the field without a blink

and all in all is a PLEASURE to own smile.gif

and the biggest surprise of all he has a HUSKY red and white girlfriend wink.gif

O.K. we still don't like the GSD and white husky but I can get his attention, if I see the "enemy" before he does lol.gif

Just wanted to post this because I am so proud off my big scruff and to give encouragement to all others with reactive dogs .... remember there is always light at the end of the tunnel no matter how far away it seems at the moment before you know it the light does get a lot brighter smile.gif

Congratulations to Eddie on finding an owner who cares enough to turn him around... and to you, of course, for achieving this.

Huge congrats! I can remember Eddie from the other doggy site we were both on so I know how long you've been working towards this.

Wish I could say the same, Polly is still quite reactive but has improved, I dream of being able to just go anywhere without being on constant alert (though I think its more to do with the number of people who just let their dogs run over to us without checking if its OK thats our problem).

Well done both of you xxxxxxxxxx

What a fantastic post, and gorgeous doglet flowers.gif

We're on the same road, and I appreciate all the hard work and emotion that goes into it. We managed a long walk in a busy park today, and in 2 hours, we only had one lungy moment. They're worth every minute of training though smile.gif

Well done! My used-to-be-reactive girlie today endured a pat on the rump from a small pink child then the child`s mother fell over her. All taken in good part without a grumble.
Dogs repay the effort you put in so well. smile.gif
