Teagan – Border Collie – stressed & insecure, barked and screamed when owners left the room, recall issues:
Thank you so much for your visit yesterday and all your good advice. We have been putting it into practice and I actually managed to leave the house this morning without Teagan having a tantrum! I told her to go in her bed and every time she began to bark I made that tsk noise. That happened about 3 times and then . . . Silence! Wonderful … I let her off the lead in the meadows and, even though we came across another collie whose owner had a ball and slinger, she stayed close by and came back on the lead when I wanted her to. She is already calmer and less stressy.
Thank you for your comprehensive report – we appreciate the hard work you have put in on our (and Teagan’s) behalf.
