Excerpt from the book Unconditional Honor: Wounded Warriors and Their Dogs by Cathy Scott and Clay Myers.
This is LA.
Sheri Williams At Work
A common problem: Agressive behavior towards other dogs.
In this instance Sheri and her doggie assistant “Debo” are walking an aggressive Chihuahua-mix by fenced in dogs who are demonstrating aggressive behavior as well.
The Chihuahua-mix, naturally, responds in kind.
The same scenario a few minutes later.
The (formerly aggressive) Chihuahua-mix now accepts Sheri as the “pack leader” and is now under her control. Eat your heart out Cesar!
Sheri demonstrates the importance of constant, positive reinforcement.
This is an integral element for her many successes.
It doesn’t end with a successfully educated pet..
The owners also need to be trained!
This is a two-way commitment between owner and pet.
Here is Sheri “working” with the owners of two of her pupils.
