Pupdate - Topaz
Topaz is leash reactive to strangers, but especially to other dogs. It's frustration rooted in excitement because he does the same high-pitched whining and barking that I hear when I come in the house. On our walk we saw 4 other dogs and he actually did very well. as we used the Open Bar when he looked at the dogs, then reinforced him heavily when he gave us attention. As his people said, it was his best walk ever.
