Alpha Female During Walks
Our blue merle, Charlotte, is fantastic but for one problem: she acts out of control with other dogs during our walks. She ranges from aggression with some dogs, to an overly anxious need to greet others. The dogs that she "makes friends with" get tired of her because she will randomly go after their legs, or nip at their sides. She seems to see other dogs as herding objects. Any suggestions on modifying her behavior towards other dogs during walks? Thanks in advance.
