I think the saddest and most embarrassing thing about having a reactive puppy isn't when she barks at dogs. It's when she barks at kids. Or when kids ask to pet her and I have to say no. It's so sad to me. The trainer says she does this out of excitement but it doesn't really matter the reason. The more trainers we have and the more classes we attend just brings me closer to the realization that I don't know if there's hope for her. I don't know if she'll ever be able to be calm or channel her excitement. Ugh. We've worked so hard.
