I saw the title, thought, I don’t have any scaredy dogs, then saw the subtitle–“reactive dog” and I KNOW I have at least one of those. And I’ve learned a lot, about my dogs and about myself. Brown recommends, if you have a dog that barks all the time, giving her a reward if she is BLESSEDLY QUIET for three seconds. It does have to be three seconds. And she tells us to notice all the stress signs (that I have read about elsewhere but never noticed with the barker. They are there). I think she puts a whole lot of information in front of us. You may get almost instant results if you don’t fight her ideas, because they’re too easy.
