I haven't really "digested" all of it, but I could share a couple of the things that really stuck out for me. First, I was astounded at how well-behaved the "reactive" dogs were. I can only attribute that to the way Pam managed to direct her own dog, evaluate the body language of the other dog, instruct the other person, and explain what she was doing to the audience -- ALL AT THE SAME TIME. I was expecting to see a written warning at the bottom saying something along the lines of "professional driver; closed course: do NOT try this at home, kids!" It was also eye-opening to see the VERY high level of reinforcement and to realize just how very busy you can (and must) keep your dog in the presence of his/her "triggers."
I also want to report that I recently switched one of my dogs from a collar to a harness (the Hightower kind with the ring in front). I don't generally believe in miracle cures, but after 3 years of trying to get her not to pull (flat collar, gentle leader, you name it), the harness solved the problem in about 10 seconds without any effort from me or discomfort for her. She just seems SO relieved to have that thing off her neck.Dale Klausner
