After watching your videos (THANK YOU!) I have effectively changed that to her heeling on the walk, turning, and sitting when I stop on the walk.

I rescued a one yr old mix “Benji” looking dog named Kelsie from a woman who kept her kenneled all day while she was at work and overnight as well. I have found that she is dog aggressive and fearful (with some people fear) and had no manners whatsoever.

Your videos have given me confidence.

Because my husband decided to go to Home Depot v. Lowes, his path intersected with that of a young male (8mos), intact pit bull.
