Are any of you guys friends with Frankie on FB--she posted this link from psychology today... About your dog and the direction of your emotions.

In my effort to help Matilda with her reactivity to dogs we meet on our walks in our neighborhood, I give her treats as we pass other dogs. Earlier this week we came up behind a man walking two little white poodle type dogs on the other side of the street. Matilda became tense but didn't bark. She took the treats with a pretty toothy mouth. Then the little dogs noticed us and began to bark. The man looked around and spoke to me. I spoke back. I recognized him as someone I often see without his dogs when I pass his house. Anyway after our exchange Matilda relaxed. She had a soft mouth as she continued to accept treats.

Just like the box. My attitude toward the man colored Tilda's feeling about the dogs. They must be safe.
