She starts crying, thrashing and I really dread the thought of changing her diaper. So a few weeks back I was thinking. “Wait a minute. I am a highly skilled dog behavior specialist. I help change dogs’ negative behaviors into more positive ones. Maybe I can help change this.” Years ago I learned a routine from a trainer to deal with reactive dogs. Some dogs go bananas when… Read the rest
