What our clients say about Jo & Graham Milgrew
Dog Training & Behavioural Therapist
1st May 2017Jo & Graham Milgrew dealt with:
Bella is now a completely different dog in a very positive way. Additionally I have got much more confidence and can now take her for walks in the park without a lead. She responds really well to the whistle and this seemed to be the key to her change in behaviour. Jo is a very competent trainer and I am very pleased I availed of this service.
Bella is an 18 month old Golden Retriever who came from Mayhew Dog Rescue. She was very cautious with her new owners. She would get scared when taken out at night and plonk her bottom down and not move. She was also reluctant to come back when called and would just stand and look at them. This type of behaviour can happen with dogs who are fearful generally and can also happen if have been punished by previous owners. They are scared to make a mistake and shut down and don't respond. It was impossible to know with Bella as there was not much history. The key was to get her confidence in her owners. She responded really well to whistle recall (which never sounds angry!!) and on my second visit she was a totally changed dog. She clearly loved her new owners and had settled in with them really well.
