Quite a few years ago, I was sitting in a sizeable Veterinary clinic with one of my dogs, and a couple came in with a young Cattle dog. I could see them struggling with him from the moment they got him out of the car.
I have met so many people over the years that have told me they do not see the value in training their dog yet in the next breath they will complain about their dogs’ behaviour. As with all dog trainers and enthusiasts, it leaves us shaking our heads and feeling extremely frustrated.
This particular subject always reminds of a Mini Fox Terrier that I helped with many years ago and yes some of them really do stay with you. It was a friend of a friend and their little Foxy was very sweet, affectionate and very social with everyone.
