We have an Aussie Bulldog, Peppa, who is just over a year old.
When Peppa was about six (6) months, we sought Katrina's help. At the time, we had no control over Peppa, at home or out in public. At home, she chewed EVERYTHING, was frequently soiling inside the house, and very excited around the kids. She also cried ALOT in the morning, in her crate, to be let out/company. This would start anywhere from 5am. To avoid waking the kids, I would take her down to the beach. Once she got there, she would take off and go nuts with the other dogs, which I thought was great, as she was getting her "exercise" and having an awesome time with her "friends". Getting her to come back when it was time to go home would often take a while, as she would not listen. She was also very boisterous in her play with other dogs, which often resulted in her getting told off by the dog itself, or the dog's owner. It was all so chaotic! Even walking her on the lead was difficult, as she pulled a lot.
We have one of the most anxious breeds of dog. The Belgian Shepherd (Malinos )
When we rescued her she was unapproachable by anyone and completely distraught when walking.
With Stephens approach of tailoring the training to suit the dog,we now have an anxious dog who is easy to walk and whilst she is very protective, she is now approachable outside of the home and in the vehicle. Thank you Stephen for your patience and skill .
Thru your guidance we are now able to continue training our new rescue dogs confidently.
