A dog's two primary needs are exercise and a dominant pack leader. Provide those and you'll never need me. Most dogs spend 22 hours a day inside. This makes them agitated, tense, and difficult to work with. So before you do anything else, make sure your dog exercises for a minimum of 45 minutes daily. I take my dogs out to the mountains every morning at 5 and we run. Then, later, when we do the serious work of rehabilitation, they're in the perfect calm/submissive state.
