Training Blog - Jenny
My training partner Ash and I (Kim helped, too!) worked with Jenny to help her with her fear aggression when she sees other dogs. We used the Open Bar technique to teach her that other dogs are not a thing to be scared of. When she first saw Ash from about 50 yards away she reacted with growling, lunging, and barking. By the end of the session Jenny was standing next to Ash. By no means is Jenny 'cured' (only time and repetition can do that), but I showed her owners that by taking it slow the dog can be conditioned to accept something it was previously fearful of.
