Change Your Dog's Perception
Wally was nervous and uncomfortable going down the basement stairs at his house. He would go down other stairs and the stairs that were at my house during his board and train. In a followup lesson with his owner, we started with some pressure/release with food reward but as you'll see he was still hesitant and emotionally uncomfortable. So we did some Conditioned Relaxation with him and his change was dramatic. Night and Day.
Zeke came into board and train an aggressive dog who wanted to bite me and had previously bit people and other dogs. He had to be muzzled for safety at his drop off and when out of his crate for many days. Over time his perception of me and my dogs changed during his trianing. He became much more optimistic instead of pessimistic and aggressive. Within a few weeks I was able to physically interact with him and he and I both had fun and enjoyed the interaction.
