Bear’s owners got in touch after having a few issues regarding reactive behaviour around other dogs and some aggressive behaviour with people who were getting close to him.
As with most of our sessions we took a look at the basic fundamentals of engagement, obedience and handling to assess where Bear and his owners were at. He had really nice food drive and you could see a great relationship with his owners had been shaped already, this makes all training that much easier in the future.
We got one of our own dogs out to take a look at what was driving Bear’s reactivity with other dogs and in honesty it was much more mild and easily addressed than they thought it would be. Bear was really just looking for an outlet for his energy and harnessing that onto his owners was enough to get him mindset right.
After proofing this with another one of our own dogs he was excellent and enabled us to move onto some other questions they had regarding loose leash walking, mouthing and teaching impulse control around prey.
Good work guys and keep us updated with how you get on!
