03 The Walk
The walk is one of our essential opportunities to create a deeper, more meaningful, and more connected relationship with our dog. It’s an enormous leader/follower exercise, and an opportunity to ask your dog to be calm, patient, respectful, practicing impulse control, and deferring to you in the face of something that triggers excitement and enthusiasm.
Archie was highly reactive, excitable, and pushy. Since we started implementing some of the things we learned from your DVD that behavior has been reduced by about 75-80%. I can only believe it’s because of the few days of training we’ve spent working on these things with him. Thanks so much!-Diane R
