An update on Kira

by Steph Mahrle


Kira is a three-year-old German Shepherd with some serious leash reactivity issues. She started out VERY tuned out, not paying any attention to her handler, and literally biting his leg and ripping his pants every time she saw a dog she wanted to kill. She's come quite a ways in terms of learning impulse control skills. Here is Otis asking her to hold a down/stay before she is released to run after a stick.
