STRESS / FEAR GOING DOWN STAIRS
Elly had no trouble going up but all the fear going down. This was one 25 minute session with breaks.
GOAL: Come down the stairs from the top.
REACTIVITY DIRECTED AT DOGS
Murdoch would pull, lunge, bark, and growl at dogs from 100' away. This was our second session using a fake decoy dog as an entry level target.
GOAL: Pass by a calm dog without barking
INTER HOUSEHOLD AGGRESSION - Part 1
Winston and Reggie had begun to fight after living with one another for a little over a year. This was the first session of Cooperative Training after basic mat work was completed.
GOAL: Relax and share space.
CHASE INSTINCT WITH OTHER ANIMALS
Emil is a chicken-chaser and will get overly excited and very hard to calm once he begins the behavior. If he is tethered, he gets frustrated and barks. No fun for anyone!
GOAL: Let's walk up to the chickens with a little self control.
