If not, it is worth seeking help.
Nobody enjoys being with a dog that sets its own agenda, rather than following yours!
I chose to reward good behaviour with a treat, whilst ignoring the bad behaviour as per current dog training methodology. This created problems, as my dog is not into food treats. He is also a brainiac and a dominant personality. Not a good candidate for reward only based training!
The result was my dog began ignoring my commands. He ceased to be one it was a pleasure to be around and take anywhere.
At the Ballarat Begonia Festival, I met Caroline, from Beta Dogs. I began a series of six individual training sessions for whippet boy and myself. The results have been miraculous!
After only 3 weeks my dog is holding a drop for half an hour. He is no longer pulling when I walk him and following my commands.
Caroline brings her own dogs to our training sessions as both training models and distractions. Methods she uses are simple and humane. She has trained over 250 dogs to gain accreditation as an Alpha Dog Trainer
I recommend Caroline and Beta Dogs most highly. Caroline is like Ballarat's version of Ceasar Milan when it comes to solving dog/human problems!
She is based in Ballarat and can be contacted via her website.
