Freddie and his family were struggling with a host of issues including separation anxiety, fear and reactivity towards strangers, and also resource guarding beds and food from the two young children in the house...

"When resource guarding isn't even a thing anymore...we left him alone for a few hours the other day and came home to find him completely relaxed and asleep.....his fear of strangers is getting better too...thank you from the bottom of my heart..." ~ Bianca, owner of Freddie the Ridgeback.

Colin had developed aggression towards other dogs that lead to him mauling an off lead dog that approached him on a walk. He also lunged and barked at dogs when he saw them, and had attacked a few dogs.

"I had a run in with a woman walking past the dog park this week. Whilst her dog was straining at the leash barking and being aggressive, Colin just stood their quietly, wagging his tail!"  ~ Steph, owner of Colin the Bullmastiff

Bailey had a lot of fear issues. She was terrified of getting in the car, or going anywhere near it. This meant that her owner couldn't drive her anywhere. She was terrified of wind, traffic, and a range of other things that meant that her owner couldn't walk her. Bailey would get 15 metres from the house and drop down, too terrified to move. On top of this, Bailey also had terrible manners around guests and would jump all over them. Her owner's grandchildren would get knocked over and so couldn't come to the house. Check out some of Bailey's videos and see what her owner had to say!

"I had grandkids all week last week, 3 girls, and was so impressed with Bailey's behaviour. She walked with us in the afternoons perfectly and behaved so well around them, no jumping at all!"     ~ Sue, owner of Bailey the Bulldog
