If you've tried everything you can think of and nothing
seems to work then you don't have to struggle on your own. You can ask
for some help with your dog. There is an Association of Pet Dog
Trainers whose training methods are kind, fair and effective and they will
be able to work with you in a class situation or on a one to one basis.
For a list of trainers in your area have a look at their
Dog Trainers page.
Further help may also be available if you think you have a
problem dog and you need specialist help from a pet behaviourist. The
Association of Pet
Behaviour Counsellors works on referral from veterinary surgeons
and they can give you a one to one consultation that may last for up to two
hours. A treatment programme will be worked out for you and with this
expert help you should be able to find a permanent solution for you and your
dog. Remember, don't struggle alone when help is at hand.
If you think you'd like to try using a harness there is a
good selection available from the
pages in the Agility Bits Doggie Shop.
You can also buy
headcollars from the Doggie
Shop and there is a selection of lovely
leads for sale.
If you want some moral support then you can join the
Agility Bits forum. You will also find lots of lovely people on
there who enjoy discussing anything to do with dogs and some of them are
experienced dog trainers.
I hope this little ebook has been of some help to you.
Good luck with your training and remember, you are not alone. Help is
just a few clicks away.
