Thanks heaps for helping us train Magic. She wouldn’t be at the stage she is now if not for you Deb.

‘Deb has been just amazing helping us with our dog Clifford. She is so knowledgeable and you can see how much she really loves dogs. Cliff has really responded to positive training we have learnt and Deb has been a great source of advice for any and all problems. Nothing is too much trouble and we cant thank Deb enough for her help with our boy!

As trainers., we often have clients with dogs that are worried about other dogs and/or people and react when they see them. The dogs have very valid reasons for feeling this way although they may not always be clear to us. Contributing factors could include health status, genetics, previous life experiences and current environment.
It's very important that we prepare our dogs for these situations before they occur and while they are still in a position emotionally and mentally to learn. It's too late once the dogs are aroused and reacting.
Having good lead work strategies, basic cues and attention can make all the difference. These need to be practiced long before the 'scary monster' appears.
It occurred to me that it's not that different to preparing for bush fires. We all know that we need to have our gutters cleared, hoses ready and clear boundaries around the yard... it's too late when the fire is already at the back door....
