Rolo is a little conflicted when meeting people in the home which results in him turning into a kangaroo! Whilst we continue to work on reducing this behaviour, we looked at a setup to help Rolo and his guardian manage this behaviour. Being a Springador, Rolo loves to carry things in his mouth and when he can't find a toy - hands are the next best thing! To help meet Rolo's needs, toys will be kept by the door so Rolo always has easy access when greeting people.
We then looked at Rolo's reactions towards other dogs. Again, Rolo has some conflicting motivations resulting in some intense and rude behaviour! His guardian was able to work Rolo confidently around dogs for the first time thanks to our setup. A friendly but calm dog sniffing behind a fence made a low-stress training environment for Rolo and his guardian. We'll continue to work on their confidence and handling in a secure environment and then move on to real-life scenarios!
