Milo’s owner contacted us to get some help with his dog reactivity and leash pulling after following some of our client progress posts.
At 5-year-old Milo has been reactive since around the 6-7 months mark, however his reactivity was honestly very mild and easily worked around. His behaviour was being caused by frustration moreso than nerve and it simply hadn’t been addressed correctly.
After looking at Milo’s fundamentals we needed to tighten up his engagement and leash pulling before we worked him with our stooge dogs. Getting Milo to switch off his fixation on external stimuli and back onto his owner had him engaged and walking nicely on a leash in no time.
Next we worked on his reactivity with three different stooge dogs and he was awesome. Milo’s owner has spent a lot of time training throughout the time he’s had him and this always helps immeasurably when you’re dealing with behavioural issues.
Well done guys!
