Owing a dog was supposed to be fun and i bet you never expected things to be this challenging. What if things could be turned around today!
Just today i was speaking with a client about their dog and they were telling me how smart their dog was and how they taught their dog to sit, shake hands, wait for their food but the moment there was another dog around their dog lost total control.
Worse yet that over the last few months their dogs reactivity out in public was getting worse and worse making it impossible to enjoy the walks.
So they had started walking their dog at times and places they would be less likely to see other dogs and people. They loved their dog but knew that their dog needed the walks to burn off the energy. They hated having to do this because it was making things so hard and not fun anymore to be dog owners and they started to realise there dog actually needed more socialisation but really did not know how to do it.
Their dog was not that old and they were really concerned that if this continued they would end up having to get rid of their dog or at worst their dog bites someone and would need to put the dog down. They really did not want that to happy. They local trainer they had started to work with referred them to us and knew we could get this dog back on track.
I consider these owners as very attentive to their dog and wanting the best for him. I knew they had already been to puppy school with one of the vet clinics and would take their dog to the dog park as often as they could. This all started out well and their dog would play, run around chasing other dogs, getting chased and they would wrestle, except that over time they found he would get over stimulated at the park and then slowly but surely began to get more excited about getting to the park and when he would see other dogs on the street, at the park he became more dominant in his play. At one point a dog had had enough and snapped back at him and then the scuffles started.
Have you ever felt this way? Maybe not with this exact issue but perhaps you have wanted to go to the markets with your dog and all your dog wanted to do is bounce around on their lead which made looking around hard because you needed to keep your fluff ball calm and not jump on every one. Or perhaps you wanted to bring your dog inside you home but their idea was to turn your home into their playground and would never lay still. I have had all these kinds of dogs come into our programs so get how you feel.
For owners like you it can be hard to know what exactly you need to do with the over load of contradicting information you would get from youtube, facebook groups, well meaning friends who really don’t know what they are doing so i get it.
Over the last 30 years i have been lucky enough to get first hand experience in the different training styles and got to get down and dirty with training methods that worked and others that just didn’t
I got to work with so many different breeds over the years, dogs of various sizes and different temperaments, that i had the opportunity to trial and test things that would either produce results or not. Proof was always in the pudding as they say.
The biggest problem for you these days is over load of information or working with training methods that just don’t work with all dogs.
Things do not need to be like this. There is a better way to live with your dog and one that will make things fun again. But there is 1 thing that i want you to consider before you keep reading. Are you ready? The question and consideration you need to ask yourself is are you willing to invest the time, effort into your dog and the relationship you have with them?
If you are still reading then you are the kind of owner that i want to help. Well done on making that first step.
For the last few years we have been training all kinds of dogs with one thing in common, they all had behavioural issues that made their owners lives less than enjoyable.
We developed a program that has helped hundreds of dogs over the last few years and created dependable results for our clients and their dogs.
Its a program that has given us proven and reliable results regardless of the issues you are starting with. So it didn’t matter if the dog was suffering from separation anxiety and could never be left alone or a dog that would get wild on leash when it saw other people or dogs. We would have the same goal in mind for all these dogs. A dog that would gain confidence, a dog that would understand what the owner was wanting from them and then actually do it. We wanted to make bad dogs good again and this we are successful at! If you didn’t just skim through this write up then you will know this next question. Will you do the work laid out each week we catch up? Will you put in just a small amount of time per day to see these amazing results? Only you can answer that questions but if the answer is yes then lets talk on the phone. Use the link below and schedule a free phone consultation toda
