I’ve been trying to manage my Chihuahua’s interactions with new people for eleven years.  Darwin’s behavior was quite aggressive to new people and dogs.  This is especially true when entering his personal space.  I tried various trainers who told me he was protecting me, and also tried a few books advocating to be the alpha – none of this worked.  Then came Lindsey; she immediately recognized that my dog was completely terrified.  She explained all the signs that led her to this conclusion.  Knowing this changed my whole dynamic with Darwin.  Punishment was replaced with compassion and a whole new set of tools Lindsey cued me into.  My entire relationship with my dog has changed, and we are closer than ever.  I owe all of this to Lindsey!
