We recently bite the bullet and got a trainer in and have to say its working a treat as you may be aware my wife got bitten by our last dog and we had to have him put to sleep so we got a puppy this time but we where having problems when I wasnt there he was snarling at my wife and basically not doing as he was told
Anyway simple things we didnt think of he was having the run of the Kitchen and hall at night and sleeping by the door so now we just put him out the kitchen as being by the door belive it or not stresses a dog as they think they are in charge when we are in bed
His walking was a nightmare he just wanted to jump up at people and other dogs so we where told to get a training collar which makes a cracking noise when yanked so to keep him focused on walks this woks a treat and walks are now a pleasure
Food we have put him on a raw food diet raw meat and veg as Tin food and dog biscuits are full of additives Bakers is known as Bonkers in the dog training world and his poo is now a pleasure to pick up doesnt smell and not slimy and leaves no residue which has to be better for everyone
Barkbusters are brilliant I have to say and I would encourage others to use a trainer
