Flake & Bailey – Griffin & Spaniel: Different learning styles

http://theonlinedogtrainer-1.wistia.com/medias/sz2vq5lso9?embedType=async&seo=false&videoFoam=true&videoWidth=700 Sometimes during a consultation I find myself dealing with all sorts of specific issues such as barking, walking, recall, aggression etc…and other times it feels like it’s just ONE thing. In this case the separation anxiety is really being fuelled by the issue surrounding pack leadership. So a lot of the consultation is around […]

Adorable little Chester – Westhighland Terrier

http://theonlinedogtrainer-1.wistia.com/medias/1tllevvj9g?embedType=async&seo=false&videoFoam=true&videoWidth=700 Here’s what I would call a relaxing consultation… The dog (Chester) is great to work with, the owner is receptive to everything I’m saying, and the method seems to work almost immediately. With dear Chester, the simple use of time out and the 5 Golden Rules will have a huge impact on him in […]

Bowie – Catahoula Cross: Sometimes it goes wrong

http://theonlinedogtrainer-1.wistia.com/medias/jgvnf8tu7n?embedType=async&seo=false&videoFoam=true&videoWidth=700 During a consultation, anything can happen! When it does, it’s nearly always a shock and a surprise. The fact that it catches you off guard means very often your first response is not always perfect… And in this instance my reaction was to save my dog and luckily there was no damage done. With […]

Milo, Sky & Ted — When 3 is a crowd

http://theonlinedogtrainer-1.wistia.com/medias/siu2mtew5y?embedType=async&seo=false&videoFoam=true&videoWidth=700 In this consult I found myself trying to handle A LOT; the clients, an aggressive dog, a barking dog inside the house, a puppy with no manners… …And I was also trying to work the camera! It was fun 😉 My suggestion with this consult is not to replicate it, but to learn from […]

The Determined Bear — Border Terrier

http://theonlinedogtrainer-1.wistia.com/medias/gyyvyo8ztv?embedType=async&seo=false&videoFoam=true&videoWidth=700 Border Terriers come from the north of England, near the Scottish border. It’s close to my home town of Newcastle so I know them well. Their tough, rough, rugged hair reflects their often tough, rough nature! As you see in the video, Bear is no push over, and he makes me work for my […]

Odin – The Fizzing Champagne Collie

http://theonlinedogtrainer-1.wistia.com/medias/cpvkbdq5lm?embedType=async&seo=false&videoFoam=true&videoWidth=700 Every now and then you come across a dog who just pushes you to your max! Odin is that dog! He is so lovely in and around the house, but once outside—off the leash—he is such a little monkey! It would have been easy for me to edit this consult and let you only […]

Dallas the Biting Bulldog

http://theonlinedogtrainer-1.wistia.com/medias/ho20d9fft0?embedType=async&seo=false&videoFoam=true&videoWidth=700 Dallas is a great, young-spirited dog who is what I would class a very high energy dog. He is always looking to play, loves to play rough, can’t get enough of it, and doesn’t like to take “no” for an answer. He is not what I would call an easy dog and his owner, […]

Simba, Lilly, Lochie, Benji – The Awesome Foursome​​

http://theonlinedogtrainer-1.wistia.com/medias/szh0tcny8j?embedType=async&seo=false&videoFoam=true&videoWidth=700 I have really fond memories of this consultation… partly because I was surrounded by so many dogs, however I think it’s a great example of how things can easily go wrong. At the start you can feel a couple of the dogs, and I’m a little unsure as I enter their very unsettled world. […]

Bella & Rosie – Two massive Tibetan Mastiffs

http://theonlinedogtrainer-1.wistia.com/medias/gzsn9q9lh2?embedType=async&seo=false&videoFoam=true&videoWidth=700 In this consult you can hear me at the very start enquiring if it’s safe for me to come in. Take note: it doesn’t matter how long you’ve been doing this job, the dogs don’t know and the dogs don’t care! Always check and make sure it’s safe, and if there’s any hesitation in […]

Rocky, Chevy and Indy…two’s a party, three’s a crowd

http://theonlinedogtrainer-1.wistia.com/medias/o5f30wbvwn?embedType=async&seo=false&videoFoam=true&videoWidth=700 In this consultation we do a great job of slowly explaining what is going on to the dogs owners, and during this time ensuring that the dogs stay calm. Then we take our time to introduce the dogs calmly and slowly, not taking any chances. But sometimes it’s easy to push it a bit […]
