  • We got Boone from MAESSR when he was 6 years old. He was not dog-friendly and not good with young children, which presented some problems for us.  However, he loved us unconditionally,and he deserved the same from us. We introduced him to swimming.  He was hesitant at first, but he quickly became a water dog.  He loved car rides and just being with his people. We lost Boone very suddenly and unexpectedly on Sept. 11,2018 due to a bleeding tumor in his spleen. It was one month shy of his 13th birthday. He was great up until that last morning.There is a huge hole in our hearts that will never be filled. Even if we get another dog, there will never be another Boone.

When dogs growl at other dogs, lunge at people, and bark at everything it's often mislabeled as “aggression.” But behavior that looks like aggression is often fear-based and should be treated as such.

The appropriate term for this constellation of behaviors is “reactivity.” This book helps dog owners and trainers understand the reactive dog and help him change for the better. The process is easy to grasp, and once the changes begin to take shape, owners become so encouraged that improving their dog's behavior suddenly becomes fun and exciting!

If your dog can't pay attention to you in public places, doesn't behave like a good member of the family when guests visit, and loses control when other dogs are nearby, this book will help. All training methods and classroom techniques are non-force and based on developing a ‘working relationship’ with your dog.
