Bella & Buddy

Training for Bella & Buddy. These two are a pair of brother & sister Pomeranians, who came to me when they were one year old. Their owner had recently adopted them from another home and was struggling to manage their barking behaviour – they may be small but their barking certainly packed a punch! 

We worked together to find the root of their barking behaviour, which was caused by a lack of confidence and insecurity. We used a mix of enrichment and learning to build the pair’s confidence as well as teaching their owner strategies to manage the environment when a trigger was nearby – be it the doorbell, dogs on a walk or guests coming to the home. 

In just two sessions, we were able to almost completely stop their barking behaviours both at home and on walks, making them more confident and happy little dogs.
