Sierra (first photo) is a dog who had been at the shelter for several months prior to my attendance at the mentorship training session. After returning, I was able to use the skills I had learned to work with her reactivity and aggression toward other dogs. Slowly, we were able to progress from high arousal and reactivity just at the sight of other dogs to her being able to be off-muzzle and off-leash with select dogs in playgroup. One week after reaching this milestone, she was adopted!
