Pupdate - Scarlet
Scarlet pulls when she walks and lunges at cars driving by. To help her we first taught her how to Heel in order to get her to pay more attention to us. She is very food motivated and this was a breeze. We then used a high rate of reinforcement to teach her how to walk nicely without pulling. At first she remained focused on us because of the food, but eventually she relaxed and enjoyed sniffing, but without pulling! Then, when a car went by we simply asked her to sit and look at us. Problem solved!
