Met with Louie and his family this evening. Although Louie is a little Yorkie, when he feels threatened or insecure the terrier in him comes out in a big way! When it's bedtime little Louie feels like he has to protect his mom from anyone who gets near.
We made great progress tonight, teaching the family how to read Louie's body language in order to correct him before he escalates, while also addressing the family members' body language and energy in order to keep everyone calm.
