It’s been a while since I’ve seen Rexy.
Last year we met when he attended one of my classes. Sadly, since then he was attacked by a big dog then pretty much straight after, he had a negative experience with another dog. So now, he is anxious around some dogs.
We started by sorting his loose leash walking and building his focus, then did some work with other dogs where he sees them, then good things happen.
An issue I can see that we are going to have with Rexy is that he is obsessed with food. This can potentially overshadow his fear of other dogs so he doesn’t actually learn why he is being fed, so we need to be very careful about our criteria.
We are working on calming behaviors and impulse control around food that will hopefully help this, but we will also use a method called shaping that will make him think about why he is getting the treatment to ensure learning takes place.
I’m looking forward to seeing this guys transformation and I’m sure he will do awesome
See you soon!
