‘There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors. Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows, hills and valleys with lush green grass. When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place. There is always food and water and warm spring weather. All the animals who have been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. Her bright eyes are intent; her eager body begins to quiver. Suddenly she begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, her legs carrying her faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart. Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be separated.’
Briquette meets some canines during her Dog Socialization session in West Hollywood. As a Dog Behavioralist it is important to truly figure out the root of the issue. Without a proper diagnosis treating any type of behavioral problem will yield few results. Once the root of the issue is known it can be targeted and behavior can be modified. For Briquette he being reactive when meeting dogs on her walks stems from under socialization and anxiety. In just 3 sessions she has already met some dogs without reacting and actually sniffed some of them. With time and patience she will be a part of the pack in no time.
Stresa enjoys some dog training swimming pool and structured play in the pool. Using a canines natural drive helps to stimulate them before starting an dog obedience training session. We focus on stresa’ natural instinct to retrieve and swim. Core commands can be combined while working with a dogs drive. In Stresa case we throw the toy in the pool, but keep him in a sit stay for a time. We give him the release command so he can retrieve the toy from the water. this is a true test of a dogs progress during training sessions. Dog Training Classes are another great way to add distractions during sessions to get a complete workout with your best friend.
