Max has hd a few bad habits to work through… Being aggressive and reactive to dogs, bicycles, balls and a host of other things was at the top of the list.
In this shortened version of the complete lesson you’ll see some of the simple steps that I use to effectively communicate with Max what we expect. We cannot accept this behavior because it could cost him his life.

Teaching dogs the skills to behave and thrive in society is a key responsibility we must take seriously. I have worked with hundreds of dogs over the years that needed to learn these skills. They can be taught fairly and effectively once you know the skill. You’ll see that MAX learned this lesson pretty quickly. The more that it is reinforced, the more likely it is to stick.
When you have a dog that is aggressive, reactive or insecure about his environment and the things in it, you must start with structure and relationship and then insert corrections. Corrections should be very fair to the dog and should never be punitive or personal.
