Ingrid Grayling MAY 2013 Blog

Having just returned from a really lovely holiday, with plenty heat and sunshine, I am now well rested and well wrapped up against the strong winds that we have been having. It seems to be getting sunnier this past week though, thank goodness. A holiday always leaves you feeling refreshed and I’m now ready to face any challenges that may come my way.

Apart from training and working with young dogs I also have quite a few older ones many who have behaviour problems, usually through no fault of their own. On many occasions I am faced with a fraught and very distressed owner, who is at their wits end and needs some professional help with their dog. Most owners recognise that they need to have a better understanding of the do’s and don'ts of dog care but they aren't always confident that they have done the right thing. It’s so important that both dog and owner are at one with each other.

Of course any dog at any age can have problems. Sometimes this is due to incorrect breeding, handling or just the environment in which they find themselves living. A lot depends on the owner and the owner’s lifestyle, whether they have the breed of dog that fits in with everything, taking into account the dog’s size and the amount of exercise needed to keep the dog happy and mentally stimulated etc.

Some of the rescue dogs have had unfortunate beginnings and have therefore developed behavioural problems along the way. Sometimes, as their only line of defence against situations, they can be aggressive towards people or other dogs as they are unable to cope due to lack of training, or pack leadership from a human being. Love, boundaries and proper care have been denied to them.

Behavioural problems cover many things. Barking constantly, chasing, anxiety, assertive and destructive behaviour, are just a few of the most common. Nine out of ten times all of these things can be sorted out with the owner and dog working hard together. The work that I do with my clients is always interesting, once they know what and how to put things into place our goals are usually achieved in a fairly short space of time. When you know the reasoning behind the things that you are doing it makes life very simple. And when you see the positive results it also gives the owners the heart to keep on working with their dog.

I am happy to say that I have helped hundreds of owners, saved their sanity and the lives of many of our four legged friends whom might otherwise have departed this world before their time! Like everything in life once you understand the reasoning behind what you are doing things; life becomes very simple.
