I love your program. You were particularly on target with barking at strangers. I plan to put your suggestions to task. I have a 12 lb yorkie/maltease mix who was/is timid and after spending 2 years barking through a window became more and more aggressive over time. She lunges at anything running or walking by.

Thank you so much for your tips. You’re so on target so much of the time!

Hi Diana, so glad to hear that you are enjoying the program and finding it helpful! People often overlook aggression in a smaller dog, but in my opinion, it should be taken very seriously regardless of size. I am so happy that you are working to get your dog's aggression under control - it will relieve stress from both your lives. I hope you are already experiencing some success!

Thanks for writing!
