What our clients say about Jo & Graham Milgrew
Dog Training & Behavioural Therapist
2nd April 2020Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
Jo Came to see me for my 6 year Shitz shu Poppy. Poppy responded to the calming coat and commands. Jo was very helpful and informative.
Poppy has always been a barky dog reacting to outside noises and people moving in the flat. Her owner had tried many ways to stop this, but Poppy would still have episodes of excessive barking which her owner couldn’t stop. This got much worse when her owner’s partner bought his rambunctious Labrador Leo to visit. By the time I saw him at eight months old he was typical of many frustrated adolescent boys and was mounting, jumping up and mouthing both Poppy and her owner. It seemed as though he didn’t mean any harm, but Poppy wasn’t coping, and it was difficult for both owners to work out how to handle the situation. Her owner has done an excellent job of training Poppy to come to her rather than trying to deal with Leo herself. Her barking is triggered by noise sensitivity rather than territorial barking so a calming “Thundershirt” is being used to help Poppy to be a little less sensitive. Visits from Leo have been stopped now during Covid-19, but I have been speaking to Poppy’s owner remotely and will be guiding them remotely when they are able to visit their holiday home again.
