Meet client dog Dolly! We went over how to reduce jumping and nipping, puppy's witching hour, how to get her more comfortable in the crate, how to reduce and redirect barking, leash walking, wait, leave it, door greetings, and people and dog greetings.

She really is a doll, and very happy and sweet despite having a RBF. ❤

Meet client puppy Fozzie! Doesn't he look like a Muppet? ❤

Fozzie is a typical puppy whose family needed help with reducing his nipping and jumping. Doodles are especially sociable and bouncy, in case you didn't know. 😁 We also worked on sit, drop it, leave it (which fortunately he has become quite good at), coming when called (especially in from the yard!) and leash walking.

Leash walking is a big challenge for most families, add to that young children who laugh, scream, dance, run and play and it can be tough to keep puppy focused and engaged. While Fozzie can do really well with an adult walker, it's going to take more time, training, and maturity to make family walks possible. Fortunately the problematic behaviors are resolved making Fozzie even more lovable. ❤

Meet client puppy Otis! We did a hybrid of virtual and in-person training. It's funny how puppies always look so much bigger on screen than in real life! 😄

We went over how to reduce nipping/grabbing at clothes, taught name recognition, sit, touch, leave it, and wait. We also went over leash walking and how to keep him focused and engaged on a walk. He did a beautiful job on our walks together, even ignoring children which is his Achilles heel. ❤

We also went over to play without getting him too wound up. It's a fine line between expelling puppy energy and getting puppy too overstimulated leading to "Tazmanian devil" mode. Sneaking in training like come, drop it, and sit makes for a puppy who is more motivated to listen and settles puppy so he can still listen and respond.

Meet client puppy Bear! We went over potty training (this boy had already taken to the crate surprisingly quickly, yay!), how to channel/reduce nipping, sit, come, wait/stay, leash walking, drop it, leave it, how to reduce counter-surfing (he's getting so much better!), go to bed, lay, and for fun the trick "play dead".

I also taught Bear how to go up and down the stairs. I asked if my clients were sure about teaching him this because if he took to it, surely he was going to get into some mischief. Sure enough, after a few repetitions he was bounding up and down the stairs for the fun of it. A new baby gate had to be installed so it would be on my clients' terms. ❤

Meet client puppy Khaleesi! Her parents were referred to me by former clients. 😊 We went over puppy nipping, potty training, sit, wait, come, leave it and leash walking. Once she started to have puppy play dates, her nipping reduced dramatically! Sadly those later had to be on hold due to illness, digestive issues, and rapid growth (weak legs) and her nipping came back with a vengeance. Fortunately she is now on the up swing and can go for neighborhood walks, resulting in her "witching hour" decreasing in time and intensity. Doesn't she look like a perfect angel? ❤

Meet client dog Piper! We went over strategies for reducing jumping/improving people & door greetings, how to handle the puppy "witching hour", come and touch, go to bed and stay, and leash walking. We also went over how to reduce her skittish behavior around loud noises.

I worked with Piper's parents and their first dog 12 years ago. I'm so glad they remembered me and wanted to work with me again with their sweet pretty Piper girl. ❤️
