Please check my answer thanks
A prospective client phones about her dog's behavior problem. When they go for a walk, the dog starts out walking nicely, until it finds an interesting scent. Then the dog stops and refuses to budge. She's a large dog, and the owner has tried yanking on her lead, but the dog simply balks and stays put. This problem would be
A. a symptom of a serious dominance issue.
B. a training issue.
C. a behavior problem, though not a serious one.
D. the result of poor early handling when the dog was a puppy.
I piked B
I agree about training. Yanking is not good, even with a choke collar.
P.S. Here's a Website you might like. If a dog misbehaves, it's not the dog's fault, but the trainer's!
