Kai and Mia’s owner got in touch with us regarding some troubling behaviour they were experiencing with their puppy Kai.
Kai had been showing aggressive behaviour when being handled and had already been advised from a reputable Rottweiler breeder and trainer that he had a ‘nasty nature’ and would always be that way.
We assessed Kai and put him in different scenario’s to test his temperament and see what was going on. In essence, the issue had been caused by a mixture of handling error and genetic temperament. Kai’s a confident dog who’s simply been smothered a bit too much for his liking and learned that outward displays of aggression will create the space he wanted.
After going over some scenarios and how to handle them moving forwards Kai’s owners are clear how to resolve the conflict moving forwards and will have no issues. Very simple issue and another example of why it’s important to speak to the right people when experiencing issues with your dog.
Next we worked on Mia’s leash pulling and she was a superstar. Really nice dog with a decent drive and some enthusiasm. She was walking nicely in no time at all and I think could show some really nice heelwork with the right training moving forwards.
Great session overall and look forward to seeing how these guys get on! Good work guys.
