Marcia Scott of Happy Hound, Ottawa dog trainer, has an at home session with her client to teach the owners how to keep their dog calm when someone is at the door. The video shows the first step; the down stay. Then distractions are added, such as the doorbell.


Are you afraid that your dog is going to bite someone? Would you like to invite guests over and know that your visitors are safe around your dog?
