|My mom took me to see Cesar last February. I hate to say, but I'm dog aggressive--but not to basenjis. My mom actually took me into Cesar's pack and was able to walk me thru 50 dogs. I reacted a few times, but then I stopped.
We watch Dog Whisper all the time and mom still looks for tips on how to handle me. This year's shows are really demonstrating the way he uses his hand as a strong nudge to "snap" us dogs out of that escalated state of mind. Heck, we dogs take more hard play from our doggie pals and it's nothing compared to the nudge he gives, but it's the state of mind that he's able to transfer--calm but assertive.
I still need more work, but my mom still has faith that I will once again be able to meet and greet other dogs without causing a scene.
