My coaching will begin to help your dog become less fearful and/or reactive. A huge number of dogs that are fearful and/or reactive may also have some pain or tension in their bodies and this is something I am trained to spot – this may be something as simple as changing and training new walking equipment or possibly a vet visit for further investigation.
The more we observe, the more we learnand the better we can help the dog in front of us. This course also helps you to deal with your feelings when your dog is barking and lunging at others, because our emotions are important too! I will explain why your dog may show these behaviours. The dog is never being ‘bad’ or ‘naughty’, they’re trying to tell you something and it’s our job to listen – corrections like pulling the dog don’t work.
I have a number of techniques at my disposal to help your dog become more confident and resilient and to help you both enjoy walks better. Ideally, I would recommend the 6 week course as it can take a while for a dog to learn new ways and I want both of you to get the most out of the training. However, the 4 week course gives a base level of how to help your dog.
