Marlene contacted us for help with her two dogs, but primarily with Moxxie her 3 year old King Charles Cavalier Spaniel mix. Moxxie was dealing with some intense anxiety, which was causing her to bark excessively (all the time), and generally be all over the place anytime her environment changed. It got to the point that Marlene couldn’t walk her, and Moxxie was causing stress in the home because of her behaviour. We worked on teaching Moxxie how to calm down, giving her rules and structure, and helping her become more confident even in stressful situations. Check out what Marlene had to say after our last session!
“Just wanted to let you know about the awesome walk we had today. Moxxie is doing good, we met two dogs on the sidewalk moved over as much as I could but the other dogs were on long leashes the owner made no attempt to pull them in. Moxxie let the other dog come right up to her and she didn’t even freak out, we just kept walking. Later two dogs were barking at us though the fence, one bark and I gave her a little pull on the collar, she stopped just like that kept right walking. We also did some sitting on the bench down town, she sat down even before Dante. Thanks again for making me want to take my dog out in public again.”
Another email from Marlene…
“I actually took Moxxie into the pet store this morning . The last time I took her she was just crazy . I still can’t believe how good she was this morning . She waited at the door before we entered then we did a walk around the store. No pulling or jumping on my legs just a nice calm walk around.”
