Dogs Of The Day! And my last day!

Today was a day of human and dog reactive dogs, 2 first sessions and 1 final session!

We started with Murdoch the HUGE black lab over in Gosforth. This was our 6th and last session with Murdoch as he doesn’t need any more help! When we first met him, he pulled like a steam train, barked, and lunges at people and dogs from quite far away. Now he’s fine with people, walks nicely on a lead a fine with dogs as long as they don’t come right up to him. There has been an absolute ton of work gone into him from his guardian who has done awesome and really deserves the results she has!

Well done Murdoch and family

Next, we headed back over the water to East Boldon to see Bailey the insanely cute Border Collie. Bailey is extremely reactive to dogs, people, high vis, cars, vans, etc basically anything that moves. He’s been working with a veterinary behaviorist who has him on behavioural meds and another trainer for quite a while now and has been making some nice progress but needed someone that would help transition the training out into the real world.

We’ve started teaching Bailey to leave the house in a calm and focused manner as this is where baileys anxiety and hypervigilance start. We have also started working in baileys chase drive and building impulse control around that.

Bailey is a lovely pup and will do just fine.

Our final session of the day was with Hunter the Brown Lab. Hunter reacts to people and other dogs and has got into a few scuffles. Funnily enough, he’s also worked with the same vet behaviorist as Bailey but they needed some extra help.

Hunter was awesome, we saw loads of dogs and loads of people with no reactions at all. I do have a feeling that Hunter is showing some discomfort in his legs so he’s off to the vets.

Productive Friday and I’m now off for a week's holiday! First time on holiday in 4 years

But don’t worry, I’ll be back for the bank holiday

Well done today dogs!
