    Hello my name is Matthew. I have a 4 year old border collie Aussie cattle dog mix. I adopted him about a year and a half ago.

    Dog Training Forum
    We rescued our 2 year old boxer from a shelter about 6 months ago and have been dealing with fear based aggression towards people and dogs. She goes nuts on the leash when we encounter other dogs (jumping, whining, pawing at the Gentle Leader we use, biting the leash, etc), but what's worse is...
