Becky and Mel contacted me in quite a worried state of mind, they owned Jack the 1 year old Cocker Spaniel who had been showing signs of aggression and had nipped them both on different occasions but although he didn’t always see eye to eye with his owners the one thing Jack did love was other dogs. So Becky and Mel bought a companion for Jack a very cute 8 week old Cocker Spaniel called Oscar. Everything should have been perfect but within 24 hours of little Oscar arriving at the home Jack attacked the puppy and he meant business!
Obviously Becky and Mel were very upset and shaken by this event and this is where they called me in to help them. When I arrived Oscar the puppy was upstairs out of harm’s way and Jack was downstairs and naturally Becky and Mel were very nervous about bringing them back together again, but under my supervision this is what we did, understanding a few ground rules first of how a pack works and how you must manage a pack. I put many suggestions forward on how to keep the dogs together living in harmony!
We also addressed Jack’s attitude to Becky and Mel and this is what they have to say now…
Thank you so much it’s helped us all. There has been no more incidents of aggression towards ourselves or Oscar the puppy, in fact they play beautifully. BRILLIANT!
