Gobshite This is Jake, aka Gobshite (as per his harness).

We have been back to do some dog training in Cramlington with Jake, who previously barked, and anything that moved from for as far as he can see. Including planes in the sky!

And this was after 6 sessions of training with another trainer!

He’s like a lot of GSD, if he is restrained, he barks.

Jake is doing awesome, although he still has the odd bark, it’s not at anything and everything anymore. Bikes are still a difficulty for him, but the rest is almost sorted!

Considering a think he would have bitten given the chance originally (and he certainly tried to nip me the first time), he is doing mint!

There is a weird movement on his back legs, so I’ve asked for this to be checked by his vet, just to rule out pain, as this can be a major factor in reactivity, especially with German Shepherds.

Our next steps for him are:

  • Increasing exposure for more repetitions

  • Vet check

  • Building on his loose leash walking

After this, he should be just fine!

He’s a lovely dog and doing awesome with his training!

Can’t wait to see Jake again and watch him progress!
