Helping You Help Your Dog: Out and About

Do any of the following apply to you? 

I’ve found that of the hundreds of dogs I’ve successfully worked with when out and about, most have been overwhelmed. They may be excited before they go out, all pumped up and adrenaline running. Alternatively, they may be so fearful when trapped on lead that attack is the only form of defence and way out. So, we work to increase confidence in a calmer, less fearful, more stable dog. The outcome is that going out with your dog will be enjoyable, just like you hoped they would be at the beginning.

This is because we work to understand what drives the behaviour so they can enjoy the outside, like they should.

Examples of issues out and about include: Pulling on lead, over-excitement on seeing another dog, barking at other dogs, barking at people, refusing to go out, terrified of bangs or traffic, ignoring you when you call, eating inappropriate things, making socialising impossible.

The Dogidog framework is a structured approach that involves a series of steps, questions, and diagnostics. It provides valuable insights into understanding your dog’s behaviour. By utilising this framework, we assess your current situation and your desired goals. From there, we create a straightforward, step-by-step guide for you to follow. It’s important to note that the majority of dog behaviour issues are effectively resolved through owner education. That’s why my online video assistance is highly effective in helping you and your dog.

The meeting was excellent, it was very informative and also fun, guiding us and pointing us in the right direction, before the meeting I was stressed thinking I had made a great mistake in getting Teddy, but after talking to you I realised that it is a common problem, I felt so relieved, not only for me but for the dogs, they are both enjoying the training as are we.
