Reducing Gracie’s Territorial Aggression
January 30, 2015
Gracie, a 10-month Cane Corso, is very friendly. But, she can be an excitable territorial handful when she is behind a gate or fence or when she is on-leash in the neighborhood and sees unfamiliar people or dogs. Therefore, we worked on leadership communication, impulse control training, acclimation to the Gentle Leader, leash walking mechanics, and establishing a calm greeting protocol. There is still work to do. However, we made tangible impact after just one session.
