Re: Dog training contacts in West Yorkshire (Huddersfield)

Hi there, As promised I am back to feedback on last night session with www.dogtraininghalifax.co.uk/ I am afraid that it didn't go very well and that despite advertising as positive only and saying that they only used positive methods when I rang to esquire this didn't actually turn out to be true.....

Re: Pepper

Hi Rachel, I can see you are in West Yorkshire too... I am in Huddersfield. May I ask which gun dog training you attended with Pepper please? have been thinking of doing this with our dog Rudy (lab/springer cross) but the local ones I have seen seem to use quite old school training techniques.. i.e....

Re: Dog training contacts in West Yorkshire (Huddersfield)

Hi Scarlet, Many thanks for your reply! This is so helpful to thank you :) It's reassuring to know that we are doing ok.. I know it sounds silly but sometimes it is easy to get wrapped up in the hard bits and you forget how far you have come with him. We have certainly hard some dark times when we h...

Re: 3 Year Old Puppy

Hi Rachel, Thanks for posting this, I have just posted about my one year old lab/springer cross and judging by the responses we are experiencing similar issues with Rudy (guess he gets that from his lab half)... I have no help to offer just sympathy :) He's very boisterous when meeting other dogs......

Dog training contacts in West Yorkshire (Huddersfield)

Hello everyone, I am hoping that someone can point me in the direction of a good dog trainer in West Yorkshire, preferably in the Huddersfield area or even a dog walking/support group with some trustworthy and experienced dog owners who may be able to give us some pointers. A bit of background about...

Re: Question about our teenage entire male dog and other dogs wh

Thanks Clare, great to hear other people's experience and its reassuring that others have been through the same too.... ( and that it doesn't last forever!) I think I will take your advice and approach other male dogs carefully from now on. On the neutering front we are definitely waiting -18months ...

Re: Question about our teenage entire male dog and other dogs wh

This is interesting and I wonder if the fact that Jasper is neutered is making him react like this. I must admit that in all the scuffle this morning I didn't take the time to check if the other dog was neutered or not... I suppose there is no hard and fast rule and this is what is making this so di...

Re: stopping a charging loose dog if your dog is dog reactive

This is very interesting and the treat bomb is probably something I will try. My dog isn't reactive but he is a teenage entire male and got attacked this morning by a loose dog while on the lead so maybe in this instance the treat bomb would have been useful in preventing the other dog from approach...

Re: Question about our teenage entire male dog and other dogs wh

Thanks for your response Judy. Yes I will try and work on Rudy coming back to us when he sees another dog this is a good idea (although coming back to us full stop when out is still a challenge hence why he is always on a lead or training lead, never completely free range). In this instance however ...

Question about our teenage entire male dog and other dogs wh

Hi everyone, I haven’t posted for a little while but keep reading all the great advise given on this forum which has helped us a lot with our lab/Springer cross puppy. Its been a priceless source of information for us. Rudy is now 6 months old and I think has entered teenagehood (this will be fun!)....

Re: Hello and some advise on puppy / cat relations please

Thank you all for your feedback. Great to hear that some people have managed to make it work, very encouraging! We will persevere with taking it slow. The current set up does work for everyone concerned so no reason to rush things (even though our house is a bit like Alcatraz :lol: ). MojoPuppy, I h...
