Just makes the problem worse.

How gorgeous are these 2 girls, Honey and Sunshine, pity they are fighting!

Dakota in the snow!

My baby LEAPS puppy, Emmy, with her little cousin and big brother - thanks for introducing us, Bernice - one big happy family now. So much of love. :-D

Bernice helped us with the do's and dont's when we go our first puppy, almost a year later and we now have our second puppy and definitely getting Bernice in soon to help with the new one! Here are the two of them!

Mia's first trip to the airport,with fur sister Lea. When she arrived they were at each others' throats, now it's just love :)

Bernice! Lea is doing so well. Although she's not relaxed enough yet to eat treats/play when I'm gone, she isn't wining/howling AT ALL, and settles in her crate quite quickly. Thank you!!!!

Bella (staffy) and Tessa (pit bull x) have just turned 2 and have started fighting. Both were unsterilised. I cannot stress enough how important it is to sterilise both sexes before they 6 months to prevent fighting.

Spud is an Irish Terrier x... As gorgeous as he is he is showing signs of aggression towards people.

I did a session with 2 x daxies Ally, Jacky and rescue Lalie who were walking badly, barking and fighting. Yorkie Gizmo and Jack Russell Sophie were hectic on walks. Pulling and barking at other dogs. They also jumped up on people. Rocky and Rambo are moving into an apartment so they need to be crate trained for night time. Gorgeous Kumba has recently been rehomed and is a very fearful dog. She is petrified of a leash and collar. Mika the staffie is jumping up on people and Joe the Jack Russel is aggressive on walks.
Little 4 month old Dolly the Boston Terrier was showing signs of aggression with other puppies in her puppy class. We had a great socialising session at De Waal Park. I did a session with Lilly and Joe. They were barkers and Lilly was a jumper. Also recall with Lilly when squirrels were around was not great. Some more socialising with Conner who is coming on great with smaller dogs. Still has an issue with bigger dogs. Luna the German Shepherd had very or no recall when squirrels were around. Large pack of dogs and cats all living harmoniously and then you get a neighbour who starts complaining about them barking! And these dogs are really not barkers. Doorbells go...people pop in and the dogs are quiet. Occasionally a little bark while playing. Or a quick bark when someone walks outside! But a well behaved pack! A little bit of jumping up.
Bentley with his new furgirlfriend chelsea. Gorgeous rescue Roxy with Daxie Josie 2 months after we did introduction. Mika and rescue Bronski 2 months together and so happy. It really makes a difference doing an introduction correctly. Fursisters May and Kali Weimaraners are fighting. Guiness the scottie is barking at the domestic worker non stop.
I had a session with Baxter and his fursister Lola, they have been pulling on the leash on walks. Jack the Jack Russel has started toileting indoors since his furbrother Teddy the Bouvier starting producing testosterone at 6 months old. Teddy is also fear aggressive. Bandit the Border Collie was chasing cars and was fear aggressive with people. The introduction between Shaka and Demi went very well. Shaka's family are moving to Johannesburg but Shaka is petrified of thunderstorms, so they decided to re-home him. Follow up from Jack Sparrow's mum...All going well with Jack and his new furbrothers, Stertjie and Milo. I did a session last week Monday after a bad introduction the day before.
I did a session with Italian Greyhounds Tommy, Dante and Penny. Mum Adele wants to get another rescue. She adopted Penny, the gorgeous one in her arms, in horrific condition! She went through major surgery to fix her leg. We just did a general session and advice on whether to get another one. I said yes of course!!! I did a session a week ago with Kyra who had become cat aggressive. Ella and Eyona were jumping up on people and their mum was worried they were fighting. A socializing session with new rescue Monty. It went well except when an un-neutered male arrived, I do wish everyone would sterilize their pets! Another Yorkie puppy Zack was not being accepted by older Yorkie Yanez, and Yanez was being aggressive towards Zack.
I did a second session with lab Rufus who is food aggressive. I did a session with this awesome group of pooches at daycare who were driving their neighbours barking mad. We did a socialising session with Hiro who is aggressive with some dogs. Jack Russells Toby and Duke were pulling on walks and Duke was fear aggressive. I did a session with two of my favourite doggy angels Tori and Paul, who have four rescues...Benny, Princess, Max and Suzy.
Introduction of new puppy Swiss Shepherd to the rest of the pack of 3 rotties and 1 Swiss Shepherd did not go well so I went in to do the introduction. 5 dogs and 1 pig... unfortunately they are not happy together and are fighting. Hopefully it will all work out soon. These 2 gorgeous ones are immigrating to Australia at the end of the year. Babette, a maltese x daxie, is not good with recall and is not great with some dogs. Little Gabriel, a Daxie, is a good little boy. He used to be a barker until he moved to a home with a great view. I did a session with Buddy about 4 years ago when he was a puppy. Richard then adopted Honey, the Pitbul, from me and the first weekend she arrived at her new home she had a terrible diabetic reaction. Most people would have sent her back but Richard worked through it and got her levels under control. She has to have an injection everyday. About a year ago she became epileptic. Today Richard got me in to help with her toileting indoors. Italian Greyhounds Mycka and Montana and new friend Yorkie are toileting indoors and barking. Mycka is also a very nervous girl and gets fear aggressive with others on walks. Montana and Bently, the yorkie, bark at all the dogs they meet.
Mishka & Manu Rescue Dogs Buddy Kai
Taylor is a fear aggressive dog who lunges and bites random people. She was doing very well with a muzzle on as everyone was nice and calm 5 years ago I did a session with these 2 gorgeous furkids. It was just a general session. After a stressful move and renovations Mishka and Manu have started fighting.

What a gorgeous pack of rescue dogs. Crowley has started being nervous around children so we have muzzled him for the training. He will be muzzled while doing work whenever a child is around until we are sure he is ok for a while.

Buddy is very aggressive with other dogs. We did a session getting them all to walk nicely and calmly. Kai the Rottie is fighting with collie x Jack since the new puppy arrived on the scene.
Schnauzer Daxie Border Collie Siblings Toffee and Daxie
Neighbours are complaining that these 4 schnauzers are driving them barking mad. New rescue large Daxie is aggressive towards new people.

Recently adopted border collie x Hamish is showing signs of aggression towards certain people.

Would you believe these 2 gorgeous ones are fighting. They are both girls which is always a hard one to sort out and everyone needs to follow a strict program. Sibling rivalry is a common behaviour expecially between same sex siblings.
This is my third session with Toffee the larger Daxie. He was very aggressive on my first session but with a great owner who has put in a lot of effort he has improved drastically.
Debbie and Lucky Charlotte and Monty Charlotte and Monty Bella Furkids
Another sibling rivalry session between Debbie and Lucky. They have moved down from Ruwanda and occasionally have fights. We also did some recall work. Introduction of Charlotte to Boxer Monty went very well. Poor Montys friend passed away 2 weeks ago and he has been very lonely. R.I.P Lucy...

Pack of 6 dogs and the 2 girls are fighting. The only problem is that there are triggers from outside and no one is home when it happens. These cases are very hard to sort out and I suggested rehoming one of them. Thankfully there were a couple of options and she is going to a family member. Always very sad after a session like this.

Little Bella is a resource guarder and there is a little 2 year old running around. So we are getting her used to a muzzle and a crate so that no one gets hurt in the process. Another lot of furkids fighting with each other and having to go to the vet. Seeing a lot of this lately.
Jess and Gus Crank and Ava Pippin Jessie Jessie
Jess and Gus were getting into a hectic play zone. They also were pulling on a lead and jumping up at people. Sibling rivalry can be quite a tough behaviour problem to sort out as the owners need to change how they are with the dogs. These 2 gorgeous furkids... male Crank and female Ava have had 2 fights. One was bad and Ava landed up at the vet. Pippin male rescue is being aggressive with people. We also did some recall work with the 3 of them and fitted Pippin with a muzzle. Now we can work with him with people around and not worry about him biting anyone. Jessie the Retriever is being aggressive with smaller dogs on walks. Also pulling on the lead and not great with recall. Pack of rescue dogs are toileting indoors and the little ones are picking on old man Drago chow x.
Jess and Gus Jem Jessie & Bailey Jessie & Bailey Jessie
Introduction of resident dogs to new kitten had been a nightmare when they first got him. When we did an introduction it went very well. Always better to do it properly from the beginning. Jem needed a bit of socialising with other larger dogs as her fear of them was making her bark at them when they walked past. She did very well and got a bit of horse socialising in as well. Jessie and Bailey were jumping up at people and Jessie the older Staffordshire was pulling on the leash. Cassie, Lulu and April were fighting with each other. Always harder to sort out females fighting. Coco was Barking and jumping up at visitors and making life very hard for everyone. Message from her mum Di after session...I am stil gobsmacked! 4 more teachers arrived we followed all instructions and it was unbelievable! U are phenominal . . .a ROCK STAR So grateful! Kiss kiss x
Jess and Gus Themba Jack Russel Females Harly Jack Russels

I did a session with Suki 2 months ago when she was rehomed with 2 cats as she was chasing the cats. Today we did a socialising session and Suki did very well.

Socialising session with Themba went very well. We need to teach her how to say hello to other dogs. The girls in this pack of 5 Jack Russell are fighting. Fighting amongst females is not that easy to sort our so the humans have to be consistent with following a program. They are also jumping up and Barking at guests. Harly was saved from being put to sleep and the first couple of days there has been quite a bit of friction between the 3. They have settled down nicely. I did a session with these 4 furkids about 3 years ago when the 2 male Jack Russels were fighting. They have been fine since then but had a fight last week. They also needed some help with walking as they were pulling and barking.
Alfie Dutchess Tori & Coco Lorenzo Angus

Newly adopted Alfie just needed a general session. Jumping up at people... Barking and seperation anxiety.

Rescue rotti Dutchess is aggressive towards other dogs. This will he a slow process and there is a good chance we will just teach Martin how to manage him. Beagles Tori and Coco are hectic when the front door goes and Tori is nipping people on walks too. Lorenzo is dog aggressive with certain dogs and reactive to teenagers. Angus the border collie is nipping people on walks. How gorgeous are his furbrother and sister.
Barking Dogs Rosie Pepper & Salt Puppy Session Moving Home

These gorgeous dogs have just moved to Cape Town and were barking. Also Drey is fear aggressive and cannot walk on a leash. We needed to sort their problem behaviour out inside before we can do a session outside.

Rescue Rosie needed a bit of help with cat chasing and jumping up at people and begging. Introduction of new puppy to unsocialised great dane Blue. All went very well. Just a general puppy session with Pepper and Salt. Toilet training and recall. Love my puppy sessions. Moving home has unsettled the furkids and the neighbour has complained about the barking.
Jack & Cooper Harry Harry Chap  Trixie Harry

Jack and Cooper are fighting badly. They are both males of similar ages. Sibling rivalry.

Harry is toileting indoors and jumping up at people and biting their feet. Frenchies Coco and Gaby were suffering from seperation anxiety. Chap and Trixie are both scared of getting into the bakkie and also of walking with a leash. This is going to be a slow process and we need to positively associate these things with them before I take them off the property. Dexter the Shepherd is suffering from seperation anxiety and barking and being destructive.
Molly Milly Ridgeback Ridgeback Jack Russel Ike

Second  session with Molly to get her Chicken and horse friendly went very well.  

Year old Milly is jumping up at people and pulling on the lead. Also going for Hilux her furbrother at the gate when dogs walk past. Duke the Ridgeback is aggressive towards women coming into the property and he is teaching his bad habits to his fursister. Introduction of unsocialised 9 year old to boxer went very well. I used a muzzle just to be safe. Session with Jack Russell Ike who is aggressive with people when they leave the property and is hectic on walks when he sees other dogs. His border collie fursister has started to do exactly the same so they must be walked separately until they are fine on their own. Issy the female Jack Russell is great
Buddy Retriever Milly Milly Milly Milly

Buddy the retriever is petrified of going in the car and of his leash. I have seen a lot of retrievers lately who have the same problem and it really is not that easy to sort out. Definitely no quick fix.

Recently adopted rescues tonto and Biko were so well behaved. All my clients were rescues yesterday and it made me so happy. Adopt don't shop. Just a general puppy session. Second session with dog aggressive Diesel introduction to new puppy Retriever. Not going to be a quick fix. Will take patience and time and a lot of love. German Visla Odin has just emigrated with his sister German short haired pointer Ripley from Australia and is now suffering from terrible separation anxiety and driving his neighbours Barking mad. Rosie and Goldie are using their home as a toilet.
Buddy Retriever Boxer Vegas Chuck & Penny Mishka York

Second session with retriever Buddy who is petrified of stairs and the car. Am seeing a lot of retrievers with this problem lately.

Boxer Vegas and mixed rescue Bruno have started fighting.  Unfortunately the other dogs are joining in. 

Bulldogs Chuck and penny are jumping up on people and are hectic on walks. I did a session 7 years ago when Mishka was bullying her brother. He has sadly passed away and now her new beagle brother Shane is bullying her. He is also jumping up on people and acting like a typical teenager. York the older bulldog is great with his new fursister Ro but is aggressive with certain resources with his humans.
Duke Toby and Tendai Tyson Tyson Twiggy and Sydney

As cute as Duke is he a aggressive with children.

Toby and Tendai are fighting with each other. Also Barking a little and jumping up at people.

Tyson the border collie is unsterilised and because of this is marking all over. Plus Nemo the pitbul is just finished being on heat and has become a little aggressive. Definately need to sterilise both asap. Griekie and Saartjie needed a little bit of helping with jumping up at people. Toileting indoors and just general behaviour with each other. Twiggy and Sydney are both females and are fighting. I see a lot of these cases and they take a lot of work from their humans to correct it.
Flo Blake Whizzle Zulu

Gorgeous Flo is a nightmare on her lead. She jumps up at you while she is walking and bites her lead and goes for the prams wheels. She really responded well to her new harness and was walking beautifully very quickly.

The naughty one on the right was needing a bit of help today. Jumping up at people and running out of the property whenever he got a chance.

Not an easy session with fear aggressive Blake. It will take a lot of work and a lot of love and patience to get him feeling less fearful. Gorgeous Whizzle is pulling on lead and jumping up at people and not good on recall. Also getting him used to resident cats. Just a general session with gorgeous boerbul Zulu and beagle. Zulu was pulling on lead and after being fitted with a halti was walking like an angel.
Prince Georgeous Boy Max and Missy George Diago

8 month old yorkie Prince was 4 months old when he was bought and he was already a fearful dog. The session was to help his Barking at visitors and introduction to the resident cat

I feel in love with this gorgeous boy and think he fell in love with me too. Positively associated the muzzle with him and went for a walk in the greenbelt. He is slightly dog aggressive.

Max and Missy were pulling on their leads and Max was reactive to other dogs. Introduction between dog and cat can sometimes take a good couple of months especially if the cat doesn't accept the dog so this is a process that needs time and patience. This session however went very well and George was thankfully more interested in the yummy treats we were giving him.

Muzzle training so that we can introduce Diago to his new Daxie.  Diago is dog aggressive so we need to do an introduction responsibly and make sure no one gets hurt.

Prince Prince Prince Prince Prince

Storm is getting a bit aggressive and protective towards his mum.

Coco has just moved and is suffering from separation anxiety.

Fearful Brixton is Barking and appearing aggressive towards certain people on walks.  We also did some recall work with him.

Bijou & Benjy Tinkerbell & Pepper Hunter Zambi

Females Tinkerbell and Pepper are fighting.

Hunter is suffering from separation anxiety and also fear aggression. A slow process with a lot of love and patience required.

8 month old Zambi is being very destructive due to separation anxiety and teething. These 2 females have started fighting. The hardest sibling rivalry to sort out is between 2 females.
Toby Winnie Sydney Annie & Jessie

I did a session with Toby 3 years ago for fear aggression. Today's session was because both he and Abby were Barking.

Recently rescued and new parents want to make sure that they do everything correct before problems occur. Love owners like this.

Winnie is a barker. We also did some recall work with her.

Sydney the Spaniel is making a lot of noise to get attention from people. 

Annie and Jessie had a terrible fight last week.  Also Annie Jumps up at people and is very nippy when she plays with people
Lady Liberace Ziggy Prince Prince

Lady Dane is suffering from terrible separation anxiety.

1 year old miniature poodle Liberace is being destructive and barking. 

New arrival of  4 month old Ziggy has upset the cats a bit. Just a general session with this very quickly learner went well. 

Working on recall with these 3 rescues.  Recall is the most important training to do with your dog so that you can get call them  out of dangerous situations.  I prefer whistle training when one has more than one dog. 

 

New arrival Doberman has caused a change in dynamics and there is now some aggression towards other dogs. Also some leash work to stop him pulling and house training.
Lady Lady Lady Lady Lady

Poor Lexi has been in about 4 different homes but now she has landed with the most amazing person who wants to work with her. I fitted her with a non pull harness and feedback is that she's getting much better and not lunging at people and other dogs as much.

Fighting between these 2 has just started getting bad. We fitted Bear with a muzzle to make sure he didn't hurt his fursister while reintroducing them.

Fighting between the 2 males has started getting worse. They need to walk more too.

Muzzle training with Luka the Labradoodle as he has started nipping certain people.
Lady Aston Luka Lady Ziggy

Introduction between dog aggressive Emma and her 2 fursisters with new dog Emma. Going to be a couple of days of work to get them all ok.

Gorgeous Aston had a hard start to his life with tick bite fever when he was dropped off by what appears to be back yard breeders and then he had to have his femur head removed at 6 months. Thank goodness he was in the home he was as he goes for Hydro virtually daily now. The session was for his jumping up at people. For an 8 month old he was really very clever.

Second session with Luka who was nipping certain people went very well. Because his mum has put effort into getting him sorted he is so much better and we had no incidence.

Muzzle training with the Pitbul and Jack Russell so that we can do a safe introduction as the last one was done without and didn't go well. The owners of the dogs were told it would never work. On Friday we will do an introduction once the dogs are used to their muzzles.

New arrival puppy is getting on well with resident staffie Ziggy. Their parents were worried that the interactions were too hectic but all was good.
Boston Terrier and pug Chihuahuas Daxie Puppy Labradoodle Harvy

Sibling rivalry between large boy. Unfortunately play has turned to some aggressive situations so we did some muzzle training.

New arrival is a very fearful dog and we need to show both dog and child how to live happily together.

Unfortunately this gorgeous American staffie is a yard dog so when he gets to see any humans he is so excited and jumps and nips to get as much attention as possible. It's so important to make ones dogs part of the family so they learn to get on calmly with everyone.
Lulu

Fighting between the 2 females is getting really bad. This is always a hard one to sort out.

Little Lulu has recently lost her friend and has moved from a house to an apartment and is now sufferingfrom separation anxiety and barking when left on her own.

These 2 gorgeous furkids used to live on their own but now live together and their mum was worried about them fighting.

A new addition to her family. A kitten. So we going to start getting these 2 walking nicely and Bella the maltese x muzzle trained as has already shown way too much interest in the cat as far as wanting to eat her. Next session we will do the Introduction.

The 2 male poodles are fighting about 6 times a day. It doesn't help that the little 2 year old is unneutered. Just had an update and all going well.
Snowy

Second session with pretty girl Snowy as she is guarding her new mummy when the one son comes into the room.

Second session introducing Bella the maltese x to Raglan the crazy kitten who thinks he's a dog. He and Reuben play amazingly. I haven't seen such amazing dog and cat play for a long time. Unfortunately Bella has a high prey drive. Thank goodness their mum is prepared to put the effort in but this may take a while.

Session with newly fostered Marly of 1 week. She has separation anxiety. Otherwise is the perfect and friend to Harry. At the end of the session Marlys new mum said she wanted to adopt Marly so yayyyy for foster failures. This is the only time when the word failure is a compliment.

I did a second session with Chancey to introduce her to new friend Ty the yorkie x. All went very well.

Just a general session as mum wanted to get her furkids to listen better.

Snowy

Session with Jack Russels for their separation anxiety and also to get them walking better.

After a good couple of years one of these gorgeous boys have started destroying things.

New arrival pug is having a hard time with new fursister jack russel and she is attacking him.

Marking certain spots in the new home from dogs that were outside dogs and getting the dogs not to chase the cats. Also needing to socialise them.

Charlie the yorkie is driving the family Barking mad.

Snowy

I did a session to go through everything so that when Mendy arrived everyone would be doing everything correctly. I showed them how to crate train Mendy so that he could sleep in the bedroom at night and avoid toileting in the incorrect place. Always a good idea to crate train a dog with only positive reinforcements so that the crate is always a good place and never used to punish your dogs.

Separation anxiety and getting pretty jack russel muzzle trained so that we can do a session socialising as she is dog aggressive.

Introduction to new family member Boxer to the resident cats and dog went well.

Bad human aggression of male Peke. This will not be a quick fix and will need work and owners need to be consistent.

Introduction on new puppy Sam to Ruby who is a rescue Ridgeback went very well.

Snowy Judd Snowy

Male pug Franky is marking in the house and barking at everything outside which is mainly caused by not being allowed inside so he cannot smell that the house is his home but rather his toilet area. He is also a very anxious dog who needs more exercise and positive reinforcements as opposed to any negative attention.

We also muzzle trained him as he is fear aggressive with dogs and humans.

These 2 furkids have fought so badly when owners aren't home which makes it hard to know what the triggers are so while owners are out they have to be separated preferably inside with a security gate between each section so that they can still see each other as Toni the female is also an anxious escape artist.

Indi is now a teenager and is getting to that difficult age. She is jumping up at people and mouthing them too hard.

Snowy Judd

Just a general session for teenager shnausers who are barking and jumping up at people and toileting inside.

An almost perfect furfamily except one or two of these gorgeous ones are toiketing indoors.

I won't do a socialising session with a dog aggressive dog without them being muzzled as I wont take a chance another dog will get hurt in the process. Some dogs will never like other dogs so we need to learn to manage them. And always walk them with a muzzle on when in areas where there are off leash dogs.
