.

***Due to the nature of emotions like fear, anxiety & aggression long term success is highly dependent on how YOU manage your dogs lifestyle, experiences, and interactions after the training is completed. 
The amount of in-home structure, rules, and boundaries you enforce, as well as the amount of mental enrichment, physical exercise, & play (style your dog finds fulfilling) you provide for your dog, for them to be mentally & emotionally happy is a large part of canine mental health. 
How you handle stranger/dog interactions from here on out is critical for any behavior modification program to work.
 In order for remission & continual improvement to be possible, consistency, upkeep, & commitment is needed from the OWNER (even if your dog seems "cured" at the end of the training program). ***
