I've only ever heard very good things about Brenda Aloff. Again, my personal opinion is that as along as I have focus & control in the ring, I don't really care much about what happens outside the ring. Jinks is *OVER* aroused while waiting in the blind for Barn Hunt. He's loud, barky, whiny, over the top. He drags me into the ring. But when we enter the ring and I tell him to sit to be released, he happily complies and waits for release. He works in a high state of arousal, but not over aroused. He listens to my commands and works efficiently. So while he's absolutely, completely over aroused outside the ring, his actual ring time is not over the top. It's exactly where I like it- very high arousal with good control and focus. So for me, I learn to not care about the whining and craziness outside the ring. Sure- not possible for everyone- we all have our priorities!
Now if he were over aroused in the ring- like I said- we'd be working in it for sure! I've never taken a Brenda Aloff class, but I've heard very good things. I have a couple of her books, which I've skimmed most of them.
