Team Tegwyn, German Wirehaired Pointer

August 2020 Team Tegwyn learnt how to use Nosework and interactive training games to manage arousal and reinforce respectful behaviour around sheep. After a recent sheep chasing incident we veered from the set training plan to focus on this hot issue. I’m lucky to have a docile and confident small flock to practise with. They…

Team Buddy, Manchester Terrier

August 2020 With each behaviour consult I see how much Buddy the Manchester Terrier has grown in confidence. His teammate puts a lot of effort into his recovery from reactivity. I’m always impressed by their progress. For Buddy to overcome is fears he needs coping skills. It’s not enough for him to simply ignore the…

Team Loki et al, Staffordshire Bull Terriers

August 2020 4 beautiful Staffords each with very different personalities and individual needs: Harley, old girl, is super sociable but protective over the others, playing the mother role. Ivy is fearful of small dogs after being attacked by a Yorkshire Terrier. Daisy and Loki, the youngsters, are both under socialised due to Loki needing intensive…

Team Buddy, Manchester Terrier

July 2020 Buddy’s human and I were incredibly impressed with his coping skills this week. This was taken after his behaviour consult and as you can see he was taking life in his stride! What a chiller 🥰 On Buddy’s morning walk, he was startled by another dog, causing him to feel overwhelmed and bark….

TTouch Harness for Loose Lead Walking

Using a TTouch harness and rope, we were able to help Bess release some body tension and manage her arousal level. Using this equipment I find that when a dog does pull ahead their power is more easily managed because the pressure in the rope can be softened, encouraging their body to soften too. With…

Team Tegwyn, German Wirehaired Pointer

July 2020 Tegwyn is sweet natured and full of bounce. He’s a German Wirehaired Pointer pup, who has trouble managing his excitement, leading to jumping up and mouthing. Pulling on walks has been an issue, as has returning when called. Tegwyn is also a picky eater but the JR Pet Products Pate was an absolute…
