Dream Dog Program
Picture a calm walk in the evening. You can enjoy the sunset and your surroundings while you unwind for the day without your dog pulling you down the street. As you are getting back to your house, your neighbor comes out for some friendly conversation. While before you may have avoided this situation because your dog would jump all over your neighbor, you now are confident to stop and talk while your dog calmly sits next to you. You come home afterwards and order some dinner. When the delivery driver arrives, you ask your dog to go to a designated spot while you answer the door no longer having to hold him back so you may get your food. While you eat, your dog remains calmly in that spot so you may eat in peace instead of him begging at your feet or trying to take the food from your hand. We can make this happen.
