Reggie is growing into a large puppy with high energy and with some bad behaviour traits including mouthing, jumping and running excitedly through the house and garden. He was chewing up his lead, his chest harness, the car seat belts and everything else he could get into his mouth. He was living at a frenetic pace. However when he was tired or worn out he was very loving and peaceful. He showed no malevolence, he was just extremely active but his mouthing was leaving a lot of scratched limbs on his owners, both of whom are senior citizens and on anti clotting medication. Walks were on a chain lead because of his chewing and he was very difficult to control although he loved meeting all humans, young and old and all dogs large and small. He was simply a super highly energetic child. He also showed signs of high intelligence and was house trained and knew how to sit and drop and come to you, however the last he thought was optional.
In the first visit Michelle countered all of Reggie's bad behaviours and gave us a clear path on how to change him into a loving and obedient dog. The change from the very first day was dramatic and has continued through her second visit two weeks later. Reggie still has the energy but knows he must temper this with his love, respect and obedience for his owners.

Trainer note from Michelle Howell :
Reggie is the most playful and boisterous ridgeback cross who desperately needed some boundaries. Although he is still young he has responded well to training and is going to be a wonderful dog. His lovely owners are committed and have step by step following the processes and are getting great results. I can't wait forour next lesson.
