Some lovely socialisation skills being displayed by Frankie and Goose.
Frankie is adjusting to a more restrictive suburban life than she is used to which to begin with caused her alot of frustration. Nice work ❤

A huge step forward for Rahda working through her defensive behaviour towards other dogs. Whilst she is still building confidence it was nice to see her comfortable enough with Goose that she wasn’t lungeing at him acting aggressive.

And another because I can’t post 2 videos at once………. but mostly because seeing happy dogs and owners walk nicely together makes me do a happy dance 🤸 and that I could not post!!

And this is Ajay now in just our second lesson!! After almost 4yrs of pulling she was happy to learn how her mum would prefer she walked on the leash. The part I love about this video is the change in Ajay’s body language, she is soooo much happier and confident. Lovely work Vanessa and Ajay ❤
Dogs that pull have generally never been shown how to walk on a leash and as humans we feel it is our responsibility to “control” our dogs but this is where the conflict starts. It is not only unenjoyable for the owners but also for the dog. Leashes are a guidance tool!

This was Ajay a 4yr old Border Collie a couple of weeks ago!! This is a common sight that I see when driving around local streets. It is a huge reason why some dogs are condemned to a life in the backyard. Walking a dog like this is not only unpleasant but dangerous not to mention other behavioral problems it can cause. Ajay’s owners were also very concerned about the possible damage to her throat if it was to continue. Watch this space…….
