Great interaction play with young puppies!
When you want to walk both of your dogs on the same side. It takes practice but it can be done!
Cleetus and Gossip having a blast! Puppies should play with puppies.
Best friends that play and sleep together.
Luke's owner practices loose leash walking and sitting with outside distractions. Over the next few lessons the food will be faded away and replaced with physical and verbal praise only.
Walking your dog with distractions can be a good experience.
Isn't it great when your dog no longer lunges and barks at wildlife?
Ace's mom is thrilled to walk Ace now!
Here is Ellie happy to go to her crate. Her owners have made the crate a happy and positive place to go.
Alex is walking Kirby much better now with training.
Here is Daisy and her mom out on a field trip which is included in the training program. They both are doing great.
Learning any skill in the least distracted area first is key. I first had Addie and owner practice in the home. The next step is the front lawn where Addie is comfortable. One of our field trips will include a trip to the park to practice. Raising the distraction levels slowly so they can have overwhelming success!
Lycan struggles with people, dogs, and children. I will be teaching the owner how to apply relaxation techniques to help Lycan relax and change his perception of people, dogs, and children to a better state of mind.
After a few training sessions the owner is able to take Lycan for a walk during the day. Normally the walks are very early as Lycan would react to everything. We still have a way to go but this is huge for them!
This is the video the owner sent me asking for help. Check back soon for the follow up appointment
Loose leash walking! Owner and Zoey have a much better time on a walk now.
Ally struggles with anxious, nervous behavior. She would not settle if she was out of her crate. Also, the owner is unsure of the way to handle her behavior by giving negative responses and many commands to Ally.
I am teaching the owners calming techniques which will replace Ally’s anxious, nervous behavior. Forcing a dog to sit or down might change a behavior. But this will not change her perception of what causes her unwanted behavior. Perception Modification will replace the unwanted behavior to calm natural behavior.
Here is the "after" video of a relaxed Ally. Please watch the first video of Ally in the video section. Her new owners have followed the relaxation techniques and you can see the results!
Arctic struggles with anxious, nervous behavior. She barks constantly. Arctic also does not like certain floor surfaces. When Arctic is really "over the top" will back his way through doorways. This is a short video from session 1.
