Is your training based on positive reinforcement or the use.of electronic collars? Do you come to south Jersey? I have two rescue dogs, a male fox hound mix and female Argentine Dogo. They both know basic commands. I want them to learn manners on greeting visitors, not reacting to other dogs while walking and my Dogo needs to learn how to respect the life if my Bengal feline.
hi judith, i have a very expansive “tool box,” meaning i train using the tools your individual dogs need, keeping in mind what you, the owner feels comfortable with as well.
i have had good results with dogs who have had similar issues that you describe your dogs as having. i’d be happy to work with you and your dogs to resolve these issues.
and yes, i travel to south jersey to train.
