What our clients say about Jo & Graham Milgrew
Dog Training & Behavioural Therapist
20th March 2021Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
We initially got in touch because Finzi had separation Anxiety and we couldn't leave him alone for any length of time without him becoming distressed. Jo met with us several times on Zoom and talked us through some techniques we could use. Our routine has been changing because of lockdown but the work we have put in has paid off. Finzi has had a very good week- I’ve been back on the school site for 2 weeks now and he is getting into the new routine with me not there and Tim coming and going or in meetings in another room. It was really good to see Graham last week and get some advice on walking Finzi. The specialist lead arrived during the week- what a difference it makes. We have had a few walks with it now and this morning I took him across the Heath and into Greenwich park without getting my arm pulled out of its socket! It has made such a difference. Every now and then he tries to get to off, but mostly is not bothered by it Let’s hope it continues.
These owners had particular work setup difficulties which made it impossible to do the normal graduated separation program. They were happy to be quite creative and work with me to find what worked. There have been recent changes that disrupted Finzi because they were both at home again when the schools closed, but they have followed the advice and he has settled again. He is a beautiful looking and very powerful Lurcher which made lead walking difficult, but he is doing really well using a specific type of lead and head collar which ensures a dog can be walked safely and over long distances.
