Today we had the beautiful Sargent the GSD in for his first ever session with us. After speaking with his owners about the issues they were experiencing it became very clear that they were simply stemming from a lack of training and appropriate stimulation (video in comments). From reactivity to obsessive behaviours, Sargent displayed it all.
Upon arrival Sargent was disconnected from his owners, overstimulated by the environment and reactive at just about everything around him. So we got straight to work. In just one session we managed to cover his reactivity, basic obedience, loose leash walking, engagement with his owners, physical stimulation and resource guarding.
By the end of the session we had Sargent feet away from one of our stooge dogs with zero reactivity and his focus still on us, walking nicely on a loose leash with both of his owners without issue, and enjoying a style of play that will show him how fun people are over other dogs.
Another really good session with some really great people who want what’s best for their dog and are willing to put in the work now they have the know-how.
Great work guys!
