We’ve been back to see Mollie who just continues to make huge strides forward each and every time!
A few weeks later, and she’s literally meters from dogs - all using force free methods!
Mollie has 3 trainers before us, 1 of them was another force free trainer and we’ve combined the training Mollie did with them with my own style, and getting great success.
Off camera, chloe was lying down at the arch of the arrow on the road, literally from 300 meter reactions down to under 3 meters!
This was achieved by:
Developing dog-owner relationship and trust and getting rid of aversive tools
Building automatic check ins and fall back recall cues
Choosing low stimulating environments with a constant stream of dogs at a safe distance to work on
Recognising when Mollie is becoming over stimulated and giving breaks where needed.
Mollies guardian has done amazing and clearly loves working with Mollie and developing their relationship!
Well done both of you, super progress!
