Breed: Golden Doodle
Behavior Challenge: Not listening, not coming when called, pulling on leash, general lack of manners or mindfulness of others
Like many dogs, Tucker had a lot of love from his family, but not a lot of boundaries or clarity on the expectations! He simply didn’t know that dashing out the door was uncalled for, and didn’t understand what all the fuss was about.
Tucker needed to tune us in and begin to understand expectations. We did basic obedience with e-collar and some treats to help expedite off-leash control and create peace of mind.
Tucker learned to listen to people when they were speaking to him, be responsive on and off-leash, and to come enthusiastically when called.
The Client’s Experience – In Their Own Words
Long gone are the days of Tucker racing out the front door, pulling the kids down the street, and jumping on our guests. Our family now enjoys having a dog, and I think he is happier knowing his boundaries. Thank you for teaching us how to think like a dog!
