Has anyone ever had problems with behaviour here? (6 replies)
My last dog - Bully(pit bull) had problems with aggression, Peter helped us, but I want to cope myself in the case of a similar situation. Can you share your methods?
My situation is a little different - I am a pet sitter, so when I encounter a dog that is a little behaviorally challenged, I am limited in what I can do. Some are jumpers, some are biters, some are wanderers.
The trick for me is to find out what motivates them. For one, it's tennis balls. I swear, this dog would do anything to catch one! I can call him back easily when he takes off just by holding one up like the One Ring and calling his name.
Others are food motivated. So I use treats and food to work on a bit of training when I am there.
