Me and my partner recently rescued a 1 yr old staffy. she is the sweetest thing to people but when we walk her and she sees another dog it seems she gets fixated and barks / pulls to try to get to the other dog.
she is an american staffy and quite big. i've found the best thing to do is to yank her away and walk in the opposite direction but i want her to be able to play with other dogs. at first we couldn't even get her attention when she was like this but i now carry a water bottle with some rice in it and shake it. straight away i get her attention and we move on. i was just wondering if anyone had some advice ect.
we are saving to get her doggie lessons soon.
thanks for any help you have
