This session will be presented as a case study based on the presenter’s personal experience of the emotional roller coaster caused by raising a puppy that pushed her own skills and experience to the limit. The presentation outlines all the issues experienced and, importantly, how each one was resolved. The presenter has since encountered many other owners/clients with challenging dogs that are struggling to bond with their puppy/dog due to behavioural challenges. This presentation provides real life solutions and provides the audience with a road map for working with and training more “challenging” dogs.
