We have had dogs all our lives and had assumed we knew what we were doing. I am the main dog trainer/companion/owner. Then we became the owners of a very bright border collie and life changed. However 3 hours with you has taught me, and the rest of the family, how our behaviour and techniques influence Sam.
After my first session with you and Sam, I wrote up all that I had learned and then shared that with all the family. We all started behaving in the same way – commands, way of saying things, and our body language all conveyed the same messages. The second session when we did all the dog recall training has been the best experience ever– I am actually looking forward to taking Sam out – without needing a ball to get him back!!
Graeme says: Great news! Keep up the good work Fiona! (It's probably no surprise to readers that my dog training is as much about training people as dogs. The big improvements in Sam's behaviour came from Fiona's new understanding of how he thinks and learns. If you'd like to learn a little and make a big difference to your dog's behaviour, contact me here!)
