Back in May, I had a private lesson with Brady. He was so over-stimulated and in such high arousal that he was out of control. When he would see other dogs, he would be at the end of his leash lunging and barking. He wouldn't look to his owner for direction, and she couldn't refocus him at all. At home, he would even sit at the window barking at other dogs as they walked by. Brady isn't aggressive, he is just excitable, and it didn't take much for him to go over threshold.
When Brady got home, they went right to work with many different exercises - calming, relationship, desensitization, mental and physical stimulation, counter conditioning, threshold, etc. This isn't a quick and easy process, but his owner has worked diligently and patiently. Back in July, we had a couple more sessions which I remembered to grab a quick video of. I wanted to share his progress with you. Keep up the good work, Brady!
