For all those who helped, your amazing. I think this success story can help.
Okay, So we went to petsmart and a trainer there fitted Thor properly for his prong collar. I got a fanny pack and some really great treats, I also signed up for a 6 week OB course with him!
We came home and I donned my pack, snapped the collar on him and out we went...
One tiny pop on the leash and he heels like an angel. All his reactive behavior?? Deterred by a small pop, once he looks at me?? Lots of praise and a treat!
He had a 100% turn around I am SO happy!
I kept the choke chain on him and hooked the leash to that and the live ring of the prong.
Thor did so great you guys it made me shed some tears. My neighbor complemented me on how wellbehaved he was. He even did good when the little 1 year old on the corner ran down the yard screaming doggy at him. (the unwatchful parents in the garden sprinted and grabbed him up before he reached the road)
We also did (its yer choice) training with both dogs today. I posted a thread about it asking for critique on my training...but no one replied lol.
They both are doing really well with that and showing great progress.
Petsmart trainer says she sees a lot of frustration in Thor that many people automatically percieve as aggression (poor dude, he just want to play)
anyways...sorry for the blab.
