I am happy to be able to tell you that (knock on wood), Emilu's dog reactivity has really been reduced. I really noticed it with the new class of roudy dogs that come in after us - lots of barkers and lungers. She really barely reacts to them - looks up normally at them, but doesn't get all freaked out. She is even getting out the door to go home much better - I don't have to take her by the collar and stuff a treat under her nose anymore! BUT........ even though she is "ignoring' the little dogs at this time, now she feels she must run up and great every bigger dog with a kiss - whether she knows them or not! I hate to correct her (she's so dang sensitive), but it's not appropriate to do that either (and could be dangeous) Oh Emilu! What am I going to do with you?
