Graham dealt with Barking, Sibling rivalry
This owner did every bit of training asked and more to the point practised with her two pups.Â Two young dogs can be very hard work when puppies and even more as adolescents but this owner spent a lot of time reinforcing the good behaviour she wanted and ironing out the difficulties over time.

These owners have a nervous shy dog.Â She seems to be confident, but a lot of it is bravado.Â She has responded very well to being taught simple routines to help her when meeting visitors and new people.Â She has also been learning to be calmer around the grandchildren and another family dog.Â It takes time when a dog is not certain of itself, but these owners have made lots of progress already.

This owner has a 10-month-old English Bulldog.Â He was a typical young dog and really struggled to pay attention to his owner, but adored her so was always getting underfoot.Â He was also very excitable and anything new would make him explode with energy.Â Not easy to handle in such a heavy-built dog.Â His owner has worked really hard on getting his attention and their follow up visit recently has shown how far she has come with him.Â He is a total credit to her.

Graham dealt with Separation anxiety
The assumption with puppies is that it is natural for them to cry for their Mum and Siblings and that if you leave them to cry it out for a few nights they will get over it.Â The sad thing is that for many puppies this is not true.Â If it is recognised that the puppy is struggling then the advice is to crate and to start leaving a puppy for 5 minutes and build from there.Â Again there are puppies who cannot cope with this and the owner is left to feel they are must be doing something wrong because their friends and family puppies were quickly fine. When a puppy has true separation anxiety help is needed to make sure the puppy doesn't grow up unable to be left on his or her own,Â This little pup is doing fine now but has started a common adolescent behaviour of barking on lead which we are tackling now.

Some dogs are hard going as puppies.Â Herding breeds are often very nippy. They are affectionately called Puppy Piranhas by some Trainers, but it is no fun for the owner who is on the receiving end and who is bitten black and blue. There is no quick fix.Â A lot of work has been done to appropriately train and direct these dogs,Â They have a very strong work ethic and when they are puppies they don't have the emotional or physical maturity to deal with many day-to-day situations.Â It is down to the owner to train and guide these pups.Â Despite this, many owners love their high energy dog and go on to own these types of dogs for life as they do give so much in return.Â Â
