nowwown Posted August 3, 2007 Report Share Posted August 3, 2007 Hi, last week at Advanced Obedience, as per the trainer, I used a spray watter bottle on Cody's hips when he started looking snarky at another dog. cody has had ongoing aggressive bouts with "random" dogs that I have posted about previously so she suggested the water to take him by surprise and redirect him back to us. That quick action basically was to stop his aggressiveness before it actually started. We then sprayed him again when he looked agressively at yet another dog. After that, he was a changed boy. Soft, mellow, submissive, almost "scared" acting the rest of the class. It was the easiest class we have ever done as he wasn't distracted, just did exactly what we asked from him. Since that class, he has been friendly, upbeat and not at all even potentially agressive with any dog on our walks, at the outdoor mall, etc. How sensitive has your dog been after corrections like water spray? Is his "niceness" coincidental or is it a result of that water spray? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
