PEDs: On Getting Started

After bringing Edison home and realizing he was a monster (and we use that term so lovingly!), we were faced with the same question any new owner to a reactive dog faces: "Now what?"


We did a lot of reading, a lot of learning, and tried lots of new techniques.  And while we definitely improved, we seemed to be stuck.  We needed to socialize a dog who couldn't socialize.



We worked with what we had, but it really just wasn't fulfilling our need.  We read about walking groups in other cities and realized that was what we needed.  We figured that we couldn't be the only ones that needed a dog walking group either.


Almost a year later and we've realize how true that statement is.  We've gotten so many new members who just needed help getting started in the long road to socialization for a reactive dog.  And although it's not the easiest road, it's much better with a great support group.


Have you ever been faced with the "now what" question? What did you do?
