Barney used to have issues with leash aggression….

Barney is a 1-1/2-year-old Yorkie mix who was recently adopted into a new family. The family was so excited to include little Barney in their lives… until they put him on the leash! They were taken aback by his leash aggression and how strong such a little dog could be. He pulled like crazy, was extremely distracted, couldn’t calm down, and worst of all, he would bark and lunge like Cujo anytime a car or dog passed by!

Their dreams of walking with Barney to the school bus stop, taking him to the beach with them this summer, and taking him to family events were dashed… but not for long! Check out this video of Barney’s progress during his second and third training lesssons.
