We've been working with her for almost three years now and last week, she passed a real big test when dh brought her downtown and she didn't even seem to notice other dogs going by because she was too focused on us. It takes time, practice, and patience but there is hope for you and your girl.
I googled reactive dogs, and yup, that's my dog described in detail. I will order that book, hoping that it'll help us get through this.

Thank you for the support, everyone This has been a very painful experience so far, with strangers in the street glaring at me every day, and this means a lot to me. It's easy to feel so alone with this problem.
