Max & Ben were rescued together. Initially, their owners got in touch as they wouldn't get in their cars. The more comfortable they got in their new home it started to show they hadn't had much training previously, were nervous about random noises, one was very impulsive, and the other was anxious about being left out. They would also chase the 2 family cats too.
Their owners have put ALOT of work into the boys' training and both are coming along smashing now.
As a rundown, we've:
Introduced control games using chaser tugs to stop the boys from chasing the cats
Loose leash walking and how to greet people and dogs appropriately
Teaching a settle for boundary control so the cats can move around freely
Both will go into the car with no problem meaning they get walks at the beach
Looked at management for reintroducing them as the first few weeks Max was recovering from eye surgery and had the biggest cone I've ever seen
We also looked at how to reduce Ben's anxiety about being restrained and separated from Mum & Dad
Max & Ben have an amazing temperament and they've certainly landed on their paws in their new forever home.
