Jane Lefler :

Hi.

Jane Lefler :

My name is Jane and I've been working professionally with dogs for over 18 years now. It will be my pleasure to work with you today. I do have some questions and a question answer format works best for this type of situation since it will likely take me 30-60 minutes to type up a response once I have you answers.

Jane Lefler :

What obedience training has she had?

Jane Lefler :

Is she allowed on furniture?

Jane Lefler :

Is it always at the door?

Jane Lefler :

If she has had obedience training does she listen even if people are there?

Jane Lefler :

What have you tried so far besides socialization?

Jane Lefler :

Are you worried when you walk her on leash and people approach?

Jane Lefler :

You have been using treats to socialize her. Has it made much of a difference in her reaction on walks?
