Training & Social
I have just got in from an hour’s walk with Toby, our reactive border terrier and wanted to share with you what a different experience it was to this time last year, before our one-to-one training with Tim
We came across 10 other dogs in the course of the walk. With one understandable exception (a dog that came out of nowhere hidden behind his owner’s bike wheel), as we approached a dog Toby looked up to me each time to tell me he had seen it, got his little reward, then went past each and every one without a murmur! That earned him a higher value treat.
He does still bark at some other dogs but he’s on a clear upward curve. It won’t sound much to others perhaps, but in this strange time with lockdowns, it was just a lovely walk with him.
Thanks once again.
