Thursday saw me training from 10.00 to 4.00.
It started with Mrs C. bringing her mixed breed to me for some basic training. After an hour or more together, Max had picked up many of the basics and I was very pleased with his progress. Mrs. C was even happier!
Later on in the morning I met Marmaduke - Duke, an 18mth old Red Setter. Lovely dog and temperment, he picked up my commands quickly.
Thursday afternoon saw me in Keswick, to deal with a case of aggression.
Armed with a muzzle, I had come to work with Radar, a 2 yr old German Shepard X who had been showing his teeth to the owners. In truth he had no boundaries and no respect for Mike & Jodie. He was able to do what he wanted and his owners were unsure how to deal with certain situations - ie taking a bone from him.
Thankfully he caused me no problems - and after 2 hours I left. I hadn't even get the muzzle out of my bag!
Yesterday I was in Ambleside for a behaviour case and a training lesson.
I now have two guest dogs staying - Jake, a 5yr old Boxer who arrived this afternoon, and Snap, a 2yr old Patterdale X. Jake is staying until Wednesday while his owners are away.
Meanwhile Snap is with me for a couple of weeks for residential training.
