Because of a thread on another forum , I bought two books hoping to learn about the "look who's here" "who's that" (or something along those lines). The books are From Click to Calm and Control Unleashed.
However, the books are for dogs who already "jump through burning hoops", do agility, etc etc, and I cannot find just the basic training for stopping a dog going ballistic at other dogs.
My dog, Myrtie, is only 3.4kgs, but frankly I end up coming home at the end of a walk wanting to throttle her. The worst thing is that she stirs up the other dogs as well and I can sometimes be trying to control 4 reactive dogs while the other dog is just walking by with his/her owner totally ignoring me and mine.
Can someone give me just the basics to get me started please?
