[first 5 minutes]
If you've been reading and seeing Brenda's progress as I walk and socialize her with other BARC dogs that are considered difficult, this is considered the granddaddy of them all. Chance is a superdog, a definite Alpha, and Brenda, who positions herself an Alpha, would seem proper a matchup for good positive reinforcement. These 2 superdogs meet for the first time under my supervision. Started them off shortleashed on each arm and blocking who ever starts the lunge/pounce with my body. Still in the safety here, no snarlings, no teeth, no aggression so far. Brenda was testing me the whole time, trying to trigger a reaction from Chance. Trying to chase him around and get him to play back, she was met with Chance sitting still everytime I yell Sit, and keeping his attention on me. Brenda kept trying the first 20 minutes, with Chance just sitting there, not reacting. She eventually gave up and 10 blocks later..Buddies! Now I can trust walking them in one hand, side by side. NICE!
