Standard Poodle asked to be removed from a luxury apartment building in New Jersey

A Standard Poodle was asked to be removed from a luxury apartment by distraught building owners in New Jersey.

A Standard Poodle, 4 years old, grew up in a Luxury Apartment Building in Fort Lee, N.J. The dog wasn’t socialized when young so if it encountered a stranger in the halls or elevator or lobby it become reactive and would lunge and bark. The dog never bit anyone but the complaining residents wanted the dog removed.

I was hired as an expert by the Board of Directors of the Apartment Building to determine if the dog was dangerous and should be removed.

I applied the American Kennel Club’s Canine Good Citizen Award as a measure of determining if the dog was uncontrollable and needed to be removed or if the dog just needed handling and training.
