This handsome boy is Duke!💙
He’s a Black Russian terrier and is the friendliest soul but has no idea he’s weighs over 40kg! With still some growing to go!

I’ll be helping Duke & his owners with a training plan to help give them more control over his behaviours, help them understand why he has some and how we can change these moving forward to better ones

🥰Wee Indie had been attacked by another dog when she was really young, resulting in her being terrified and would squeal if other dogs went too close

Now …. She is thriving and enjoying not only being with and around other dogs, but actually playing and interacting too

The play dates aren’t just for your puppies to run around wildly playing. They help teach dogs about body language, build confidence and learn crucial life skills

And they’re a great way for humans to learn too

More gold ⭐️ this week and it’s only Tuesday !!!!

Wee Patch has only one eye and what he lacks in peripheral vision he makes up for in character 🤣

Patch is a typical lockdown dog who missed out on a lot of crucial socialisation and learning body language when he was younger.

However…. His owners are now better placed and aware of what he is communicating, when to allow a meet and greet and when to walk by, and … importantly, when to give Patch some trust off lead so he can go and learn for himself

He did absolutely brilliantly today and thoroughly deserves a wee gold ⭐️

Well done Patch and I look forward to the updates

The very handsome Sonny was perfectly behaved for a loose lead session this afternoon
He is only 10 months old but so in tune with his owner who needs to walk with a crutch and as such, walks more slowly

Sonny intuitively checks in and sticks with his owner, both off lead & on, and is actually very good on a normal collar & lead, only really pulling when he catches a scent he absolutely has to sniff!

We worked on teaching Sonny a new cue and command to come back to heel when he does this, before allowing him to then go sniff but more slowly.

Sonny has been left with some homework to practice, but I have every confidence that they have this nailed 🙌🏼

Well done Sonny

Handsome Ralph 💙🐶
He’s almost 5 months old and a typical bouncy Labrador who loves and food 🧀

He’s shown this evening he loves to learn and learns fast! So helping him & his owners over the next few weeks is going to be great fun & so rewarding

Well… I’m in love ! Again!
But this time it’s head over heels!!!

Meet Bella🥰😍🐶

She’s quite possibly the prettiest wee dog I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting!

Just look at that wee pink nose 🥰🌸

Bella has some anxiety when walking near busy roads and although her training so far is some of the best I’ve seen, her emotions take over making it impossible for her to focus when she becomes fearful

We will be working on building Bellas confidence over the coming weeks to help her better deal with stressful situations and to help desensitise her to typical road noises and traffic that will be for her, an everyday occurrence

Group Confidence building Dog Walks

These walks are designed to help nervous, anxious, fearful & under socialised dogs learn to be calm in and around other dogs.

They are not social in such a way that they are all off lead and interacting, they are relaxed, on lead walks where both dogs and owners can relax and gain confidence in these situations to help move their dogs past any fears and help overcome issues

More severe cases will not be resolved in just 1 or 2 walks but you will yourself learn how to better communicate with your dog, what they're telling you and how to read theirs and other dogs body languages cues.

Walks are £15, payable and bookable in advance to secure a space as very limited numbers per walk. These fill quickly as I tend to only offer 1-2 walks per month

Gold ⭐️ to put dog of the week …

Milo 🐶👌⭐️

He was on his very best behaviour this morning for his park session and really proved he can be trusted off lead when we tweak what ‘we do ‘ so we can better communicate with him and help him understand more of what we’re asking of him

Well done Milo 🥇

Scout is such a good boy. He did so well today practicing focus and recall games in and around other dogs at the park.

We taught him that he can meet some dogs but on his owners terms and not every dog he sees needs to involve a meet!!

And he did fabulous!

Well done Scout! Keep up the great work

The handsome Blue looking dapper as ever in his bandana today for a recall and loose lead session at the park.

Working on improving his recall and focus with his owners so they can build trust in allowing him off lead and knowing they can call him back when needs must

He has some homework for a couple of weeks and did brilliantly today

Gorgeous Bailey 😍💙

It’s been a while since I last saw him at puppy class and boy he’s grown!!!!

He’s a typical bouncy teenage Labrador and him and his owners are looking for some direction on creating better walking behaviours and getting some confidence in allowing him off lead more and to work on his recall

Looking forward to working with this big lump again soon 💕🥰

Wee Gizmo is a 4 month old border collie puppy who is terrorising his owners with some typical puppy problems Being overly mouthy & Toilet issues being the main two Gizmo & his owners will have a full new day to day play, structure and routine ongoing as well as set training times, walks, play and rest times too It’s all a learning curve but for a clever little border collie like Gizmo, not ticking all these boxes can lead to a world of pain He’s the sweetest little guy and in under an hour was listening and responding to my cues so I’m certain he’ll be the best trained boy soon 🐶😇
Well done Lando & his brothers Liam & Luke for some fantastic efforts with last sessions homework and brilliant progress Gold ⭐️
Pickles a big huge ONE 🥳🥳💕 Technically it’s tomorrow but as we’re both working longer days we had a wee ‘Pawty’ tonight and some birthday cake Cake & birthday biscuits courtesy of Lisa @ Doggiedoodahs on Etsy Link below https://etsy.me/39MLNAk
What a beautiful spring day Well… it’s almost spring It feels like spring Spring has definitely sprung ☺️☀️🌱
Meet Monty 😮😬😍 Monty is a 15 month old Great Dane and currently weighs over 70kg 😮 Monty ‘thinks’ he weighs 7kg and enjoys sitting on your lap and hogging the sofa😂 He’s going to be learning some new rules at home, new commands, understanding more of what his owners are asking of him and working on learning some nice meet and greet manners I mean ‘I’ was in Great Dane heaven being sat on, having my hands slobbered on and being kissed from a great height 🤣🤣 .. but most people may find a dog Montys size somewhat intimidating 🤷🏻‍♀️ Crazy I know 🤣 Can’t wait to see how this boy progresses
Who else loves the snow ❄️ ⛄️? Pickle thinks it’s the best thing ever and makes doing her favourite thing.. rolly pollies even more fun 🤣🤪
Thank you Vicki for a lovely review on www.thegooddogguide.co.uk website. I even had the loveliest text message from Vicki's mum thanking me for helping them all. This makes my job so worthwhile
Frankie 😎🐶 Or as he’s now nicknamed ‘Frankie Baracas’ due to his heavyweight blingage Wee Frankie has some anxiety issues which are interfering with his role as chief bodyguard at home. He definitely sees himself as a bit of a Doberman and anyone or anything new as a potentially life threatening problem However.. he also likes chicken 🍗 😉 And wasn’t above being won round by a scary new person Frankie and his owners have some homework 📚 over the coming weeks to work on some new tactics and changes in behaviour, as well as some confidence building training too
Two spaces on this Sundays confidence walk 11am Duchess park. PM to book ~ £15
What a beautiful end to a busy day ! Where did this great weather come from ? It’s been so lovely all day! Hope you’ve all enjoyed it as much as we have ☺️
Little (filthy mawkit) Alba 🥰 She had a ball earlier meeting other dogs, playing ball, chasing and showing off her training and obedience She spent most of the session up to her eyes 👀 in mud mind you, much to her delight 🤭 Alba was on her very best behaviour today and didn’t put a paw 🐾 out of place . So we still need to see what exactly is triggering her on occasion Well done Alba .. gold ⭐️ for todays efforts
The beautiful River & Clyde 🥰🥰 Clyde has been working on some reactivity issues but has done really well in learning to meet and greet some dogs and to walk past others He’s still young and has some maturing to go but is a gorgeous friendly boy who learns fast. River is also young and her owner is doing brilliantly with her training too
