My dog gets hyper excited with people and other dogs. She whines, cries and almost barks. She appears aggressive, but truly she just wants to play. There was a lost dog in the neighborhood that found his way to us. Once I let them be together they played solidly for 24 hours, until I located the owner. I live in a small community but pretty much keep to myself. I need to find ways to socialize my Destiny. I did bookmark the link above and will look into it.
Also, my dog has zero interest in treats unless she's at home with nothing else going on. The vet even tried Braunschweiger, which she loves, but she just looked at it and then away. This makes training a bit more difficult.
Thanks for this post!
