Sandstorm here! i was gud! Hi all. Some of you may know that Sandstorm is a reactive dog in some situations, mainly on wooded trails when people/dogs suddenly appear and he's startled, or on our road when people are out, cars, etc. I am supposed to have him at his critical distance, on leash, in a sit stay looking at me. I have been shamefully inconsistent, thinking it will get better but it has not so I have to be 100% consistent. Today was a success! We were on the trail, It's wide open- I saw a guy walking toward us, got SS in his sit/stay looking at me. He was perfect- it's as if he knew this was his important job to do. Good dog! Treat reward. This is critical for Minnie too- I don't want her to pick up on his reactive behavior.
