I saw 2 trainers previously to read this book. The first one told me to find a way to change Floyd's attention when the trigger as coming by but he was so stressed that it was not working. The second one, told us to keep him on a routine (he was already on a routine and we took training classes with him), and nothing could be done because he was traumatized. The muzzle was the only alternative if the routine was not working.
I found click to calm and red it in 3 days. I had all my answers. Emma is describing simply what to do and how to do it. It is easy to follow and to understand. I contacted Emma Parsons personally for her to recommend a trainer in my area (chicago) who could help me with the clicker training. She kindly reply and wrote to a trainer in my area. We started the program in August with Laura Monaco Torrelli. Floyd improved so much. We had to put him on anti anxiety medicines for him to be more relaxed and to me more responsive to the training but I highly recommend this type of training. Our road will be long but in 2 months the results are phenomenals. He is not aggressive towards all the dogs anymore and he is getting better with the neighbors dogs. My advise is - This is an awesome base to start training your dog, and if you are like us and need some help, look for a trainer in your area who should be able to guide you and recommend the best way to help your dog. It is not as well a magic pill, you need to put dedication into it and work everyday with your dog, but at the end it pays off.
