“In times of joy, all of us wished we possessed a tail we could wag.”
- W.H. Auden
Before we work on your dog’s behaviour, we have to work on yours!
To work with your dog, the first thing you must do is relax. Sometimes, behaviours are exacerbated by the body language and your mood. If you’re stressed, wound up or angry, your dog will pick up on this.
Quite often, this is the most difficult stage of the process. If you’ve had problems for a long time, you’re probably very stressed and wound up when the behaviour you’re trying to solve appear. If you are getting aggressive, frustrated and cross, your dog won’t want to respond to you in case they get into trouble!
