I agree Susan. Having a dog with some issues myself I can relate. I think you will find that the main concensus here is that it is not used as a first tool, without trying other things such as some training. But I'm sure some dogs, just like humans can benefit from it and it can allow you to work through the issues, have repeated positive encounters and then weaned off. I'm so glad it s working for you and shows other members that have tried other techniques and failed that there are other ones, such as medication out there and that it's not taboo.
