Pulling on Lead

DOG: Merlin

Breed: Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier

**Problem 1: **Not always coming back when called

**Problem 2: **Jumping up on people

**Problem 3: **Under stimulated at home and needs further enrichment

Program: Mind Your Manners and Walk & Trains to help build new skills.

We asked Jenny to let us know how her training program with Pet Professor was, and she had this to say:

What was going on with your dog before working with Pet Professor? What were some of the problems you were facing?

Merlin is an adolescent dog and we felt we needed guidance on a bit more training. He was also pulling a lot on walks.

What inspired you to sign up to this program and what was it that helped you make the decision to commit to this training?

I’d met someone from Pet Professor in the park who was working with a dog we knew and I was amazed at the dog’s focus! He was totally mesmerised by the trainer and barely said hello to us - usually he would immediately run to my dog to play!

Walk us through (no pun intended!) what your experience has been working with me and/or my team?

Marianne helped and guided us on how to get Merlin to be more focused on us when walking and he is now much easier to manage.

What has been the biggest help to overcoming your initial problems?

Marianne trained us in lots of little tricks and tips to enable us to control and play with Merlin, rather than him controlling or ignoring us!

Where are you now? How does that make you feel?

Merlin is much better trained and it’s more fun to walk him. He is super intelligent and loves learning new games.
His recall is better and we feel much more confident knowing it is up to us to train him further as Marianne and her team have given us the tools.

What would be 1-2 pieces of advice that you’d have loved to give yourself or others that are where you were?

Marianne made us realise the dogs limitations are up to us. He will do anything we can teach him.

What would you say to someone considering training with us?

Everyone should have some lessons on how to train their dog no matter how much they think they know because the science  of dog training is always changing and becoming better. Your dog is a reflection of you. Obviously breeds are different and have different capabilities.

And finally, What’s the best thing about your dog?

Merlin is even more affectionate and I think he’s bonded much more with us.
