I went to a farm close to Belfast where the woman has a riding school, she has got a German shepherd that bites the horses, so I went there and took him to the camp where they walk with the horses I first started walking the dog outside the camp. I gradually progressed so that he was not lunging at the horses, and eventually had him lying . I am going to work with him again next week.
Now my highlight was yesterday, I was so amazed myself and the owners mouth dropped open after I worked with her dogs.
The lady is a doctor her husband is a farmer and they have a son who is 2. They have a Duchie and rescued a German Shepherd and yesterday I worked with the dogs. I taught her what to do and also did behaviour shaping with the dogs.
She sent me a message late afternoon and told me it is going so good there is quietness in the house for the first time since they got back. they did not have an incident since yesterday before I got there. So with all of this happening i want to study further.
With my own dogs I have also got breakthrough, they don’t jump on us anymore, and my one female struggles with retrieve so Sunday I took 2 of them to the dam and Ii threw the dumbbell for them and they brought it back for me we played like that for a bit. Yesterday when I threw a ball for her she brought it back to me, it was a wonderful feeling.
The 2 that were fighting have also improved.
I am so grateful for all the knowledge that I have learned from you, thank you for helping me, your course has changed my live forever.
