I (Jaake) have been in Ryton today to see Charlie for his 1st session.
Charlie gets over-excited when his mum gets in from work and struggles to calm down. He bites her hands for attention and to incite play which has been inadvertently reinforced.
Charlie also loves to pinch items and run away with them which has again been reinforced by his owners.
Today we looked at making some slight adjustments to Charlie’s environment, looked at enrichment and calming activities, and started to teach what will be a solid drop and leave We also put a plan in place to help reduce Charlie’s over-excitement which will include bed work.
Charlie is a wonderful little dog, who is incredibly intelligent and loves to work. He will come on leaps and bounds with his training. Charlie was awesome today.
