This little guy, despite his uber-cute face, doesn’t just have the puppy crazy five minutes. He gets the full-blown crazy 24 hours.
His owners were getting conflicting advice from trainers, other dog owners, neighbours, etc. and none of the ‘commonsense’ stuff worked. They wanted an evidence-based consult so they booked a behaviourist session with us. They are experienced owners but this was a pup who came with a different set of instructions and they needed professional help.
As ever, the issue was multi-facetted. In behaviourist consults, you get tailor-made advice based on your individual situation and your individual dog.
After a conversation with the owners, it turned out that the issue was a mix of:
I have left them with a clearer idea of what’s going on, concrete steps to take, a line of support back to us for 6 weeks if they need it, and detailed instructions.
The following protocol was central to our advice. We hope it is also useful to you!
We give our behaviour advice consultations in Dutch, English and French in The Hague and vicinity.
