EBD 014 Reactive Dog Transformation – Cindy Shares Her Story

How Cindy’s Lyric Went From Reactive Dog to Brilliant Partner

A reactive dog can be a heartbreaking situation … especially for someone who has dreams of an active life together. How do you turn that around?

Cindy joins Kathy on this episode of Enlightened By Dogs to share Lyric’s story of trust, and triumph … not from training, but from creating partnership.

Cindy shares …

“Lyric turned out to be very reactive to people and dogs.  Easily over stimulated and very sensitive to her environment, life was quickly becoming a nightmare.  All my hopes and dreams were going right down the drain. BPA and the Foundation Formula has been a lifesaver.”
