Mac Attacks ! – no more
Dog barking, biting, no-recall, pulling on lead
“Thank you SO MUCH for your help with our situation with Mac, we’ve tried several dog trainers in the past and whilst all had their good points they didn’t actually solve our dog problems long term. It’s taken a lot to admit that the problems were 100% me, I just presumed that the constant dog barking, pulling me over on the lead and biting people were all because Mac was a “sensitive” dog.
You helped me to understand that Mac was just “doing his job” and it was ME actually causing the dog barking to continue (shouting at him and joining in – I’m still laughing at myself right now) and he was only protecting me and his pack as I was not a very good pack leader. No wonder he was stressed!
When you walked in to the room Mac was so pleased that he could relax! And he’s been doing a lot more of that since. The reward system is working a treat, he is a fast learner. I’m forcing myself to be strong when I let him off the lead and did not approach him once and guess what, he came EVERY time he was called. That’s the best part. I couldn’t even go to the park before as I was getting too stressed at what might happen.
It will still be a while before I let a child other than my own children pat him but that is our goal. My confidence in him is growing by the day as is his in me.
My friends are already asking about you as they know of Mac and our problems so expect a call soon!
THANK YOU Doggy Dan.”
