Bar Open question

Hi BrunosMom,

What should I do if my dog is so fixated on surrounding dogs that she won't eat the treats? Just work on my dog-eyes and start from farther and father away? I am assuming that's the deal - maybe I have been spotting them and starting the Bar Open when we're too close, and she's too distracted?

Usually she is SUPER food motivated - but if there's an appealing enough distraction, food takes second place for her. I will say that she's not aggressive with 75% of dogs - it's only about 25% that will set her off - but she is very excitable (usually she just wants to play) around other dogs and I want to keep her under control and focused on me, regardless.

Any suggestions?

Cheers
Andria
