Back to see Arnie the Staffy Mix

Arnie is MASSIVE and super strong.

In the first session, we worked through his loose leash walking, his over-excitement around other dogs, and his over-excitement with people when they come to the house.

Arnie is awesome, absolutely loves people and dogs, but hates vets as we recently found out.

This isn’t really something we can train him for, although we can help him feel comfortable in the vets with gradual exposure and making the vet area fun and prepare him for as much as we can with handling exercises. From there it’s over to the vets to make him feel comfortable with them specifically and build a relationship with him.

Anyway, he recently got a fright by a loud motorbike that went right by him. Since then, he has developed some anxiety around traffic in the area where this happened. Elsewhere, he’s fine. We are now gradually exposing him to traffic and rebuilding that confidence up with him.

Arnie is lovely and it’s awful to see him anxious.

He will be sorted in no time and back to his normal self

Well done so far Abbie and Arnie
