You bring a rescue dog home (or any dog) and you find out it's not quite the obedient dog you've hope for. It's dragging you on walks as it pulls the leash, it does not come when called, it dashes for the door without control...what do you do? Dog modification expert Tricia Casper (www.triciacasper.com) gives her top tips in this segment.
About Tricia Casper
Tricia has over 15 years of animal experience, including zookeeping, dog daycare, animal safety on film/TV sets, dog walking, pet sitting, conducting shelter behavior assessments and training. She has been involved in dog training and behavior modification since 2006 and have had the pleasure of working with many types of dogs and dog breeds.
Tricia enjoys the challenge that comes from working with dogs, especially those that require behavior modification. Thanks to her own leash reactive dog, she developed a training class in 2010 for other "reactive rovers" that has proven to be very popular and necessary. Because of the amount of people and dogs who have been helped through this program, it has become one of Tricia's favorites.
