Bringing a rescue dog into your home can sometimes be traumatic for everyone. Our intention is to make them feel welcome and safe but sometimes our behaviour can have the opposite effect leaving the dog confused, stressed and fearful. But behavioural problems don’t just happen with rescue dogs. We have visited many dogs over the years that have been raised as puppies in loving homes and still sadly over time have begun to exhibit frustrating and annoying behaviours that can drive us all to distraction. Canines are simple creatures and enjoy a simple life but our lives can become complicated leaving them vulnerable and in a position to make poor choices.
Our workshops are not designed to teach you how to “train” or “command” your dog. They have been designed to assist anyone who wants to learn about the dog, its language and understand in easy terms why problems exist and how to avoid them.The topics covered will focus on the Physical, Mental and Emotional aspects as well as assist you to be more observant and understanding when it comes to your dogs’ behaviour.
Jenny will help you learn the signs, causes and effects of stress and how to cope. You will understand why we recommend a good fitting harness and what happens under the collar (Collars vs Harness) and why long leash walking is so important for you and the dog. You will learn the simple gestures and signals to communicate without having to bribe, yell or force your dog as well as nutrition, information on alternative medicine (worming, heartworm, Flea and Tick) and so much more.
