Case study

ISLA

ISSUE

Isla's owner contacted me because Isla was having issue settling in her new home. She was very distressed being left alone and had started biting her owner. ‚Äč

ASSESSMENT

It soon became apparent Isla was showing signs o frustration aggression. She's a very bright dog and needed more to occupy her mind.

PLAN

We started with scent training to use Isla's brain more. She soon picked up the idea. Her owner has continued with this, along with the rest of behaviour modification plan. 7 months after adopting Isla, they are making progress.

"My rescue dog was showing all sorts of unwanted behaviour; I honestly thought I was going to have to return her. With Mike's expertise and guidance, we're making tremendous progress."
