Dogs with bad leash manners are always problematic. Even if their behavior isn’t aggression, it can cause serious problems. Dogs that bark and lunge at other dogs (or people) even in a playful manner can trigger behaviors in other dogs that will get them in trouble.
This is usually taught in early socialization. Behaving on leash and in the presence of other dogs will lead to a happy, balanced life. Cora is a really nice German Shepherd who did not learn her lessons properly, so we had a little work to do.
In today’s lesson you’ll see how I help Cora and her mom and dad see the benefits of structure and clear communication.
