"You have liberated me from a lifetime fear. I have had Cognitive Behavioural
Therapy, but it did not come anywhere near close to what happened today. Its hard
to believe that I stroked those dogs"
"I did not think my fear of dogs would be resolved in one training session!
I believe this was possible through the excellent interpersonal skills and
friendliness of the trainers"
"I stroked a Rottweiler!!"
Responsible dog ownership
Dogs and their owners have such a special relationship and one that goes back many
thousands of years, however, over the last couple of decades things have changed
drastically in households leading to that relationship getting out of balance.
Dogs, regardless of looks, tend to get away with things due to their adorability;
this is just a natural human tendency of wanting to stroke and cuddle and ‘befriend’
cute furry things.
The problem with dogs is that, no matter how gorgeous they are, they are still predators
with a predator’s mentality and like their wild cousins the wolf, abide by innate
rules that dictate they need
to lead or be led. When we spoil them in human terms, we are in effect, telling
them that we’re simply not up to the job of leading them.
On our responsible dog ownership programme looks at the psychological aspect of
dog ownership and how you can create a balanced, well mannered family pet dog.
