Today, we visited Cody, an energetic Saluki cross Greyhound from Newton Aycliffe.
Cody is a super happy, food-motivated dog, but he reacts quite intensely to other dogs. Despite working with seven other trainers (inc a very popular TikTok one), he still needed the right system to help him succeed.
Thankfully, Cody's amazing owner is also working with a fantastic trainer, who suggested bringing in a behaviourist to ensure they're on the right track and speed up progress. That's where we came in!
We started with focus work and pattern games to help Cody walk past other dogs calmly. We made sure the environment was set up correctly for his success.
From there, we worked on stress-free doorways and building up focus for loose-leash walking. Our goal is to teach Cody an alternative behaviour to barking while showing his owner how to interact positively with him.
Cody's dedicated owner is doing great, and we're confident that with the right approach, we'll see fantastic progress in no time!
