also have a look at (another) Lilly
This was a very satisfying case to work on because Wendy and Ralph had been struggling along with Lilly and Bea’s behaviour for many many years!!
They had seen 3 different behaviourist!! And as they rightly said… ‘ We are no better off, and have achieved nothing’.
Wendy and Ralph had recently moved to Devon and after having many years of avoiding all dog walkers, hiding behind lamp posts and individually walking the dogs. They decided ‘ New area’… ‘ New Start.
Lilly and Bea were very reactive and liked to perform as a double act!!
Unfortunately due to Bea’s age (10) and health issues with Bea, we were not able to do quite as much as we might have liked to . But Wendy felt they could manage Bea….it was Lilly that they were really struggling with.
Not only was Lilly very reactive towards other dogs , but she also liked to try and chase livestock through their garden fence. Also she was so strong on the lead, it made it very hard to hold her…let alone walk her.
We worked on Lilly first. Getting Lilly on the correct collar and lead. We then addressed the aggression towards other dogs. Lilly made the most amazing progress, with Wendy actually saying…
Lilly is a billion times better and they had never been trained with their dogs in this way before.
