  • Does your dog so whatever he wants no matter what you ask of him?
  • Have you done training but OMG  she just won’t listen when there’s a squirrel?
  • Does your dog ignore you and run up to people to excitedly greet them?
  • Does your dog steal food or other items and run off?
  • Do you enjoy walking your dog in a busy environment?
