We all have dogs that are at different levels of training, have been trained differently or have proven difficult to train.


How do the results of your training compare with your expectations?

When you set out to train your dog what were your hopes & plans?

I would like a reasonably well behaved dog & Tye is for the most part but I think sometimes I compare him to Moo which is unfair as Ive only had Tye a few months

I didnt get to train Stella too much, what I had to do, is get her out of her shell.

Buddy, we got him very early, and basic trainign is very easy, or was for us.

The social side to it, with other dogs, I wish Id of done more, but I didnt so I just have to be careful. spinner smile

I am very happy with the training Reuben has completed. The only thing I am slightly disappointed in is that he can be reactive to other dogs.
He has been very well sociallised since we rehomed him at 6 months old. He has been going to training classes for a long time now and has met lots of different dogs and he is also taken to the park, local markets etc where he meets lots of people and dogs.
He does not have much interest in people outside which I dont mind but I do wish I could walk past a dog knowing he would not react

Chloe was fully trained when we got her and never had any issues apart from being reactive to some dogs

all I ever want from dogs is to remain calm in every situation, that way it is easy to show them what is and isn't expected of them. Then the dog should be able to produce the correct behaviours by itself next time.

Training wise, I'm not as fussed, my dogs know, sit, wait, up (onto the sofa) and a finger click or 'ah' means stop. Also I don't want them pull me anywhere.
and thats about it.

I wanted Kassi to be fairly well balanced and calm in all situations so that it did not matter what we were doing and she could go everywhere and be happy and have some independence to amuse herself.

I've never sought perfection with Ruby and Elsdon, a good recall and being relaxed around other dogs has been the most important thing for me but training classes have helped enormously and I would certainly take them back to them again soon, especially for Ruby and the agility course, she's a whizz at it.

I wanted to have happy obedient dog.

As long as enzo is happy and im happy thats all that matters :)

The only thing I don't like is him not getting on with other dogs so I will do anything to help with this.

There's no such thing as a perfect dog. So long as I am not causing a nuisance when out and about, I can tolerate a bit of nuttiness in the home.

There are perfect dogs out there but they are trained for obedience, I've seen six of them - they are our trainers dogs.

Even though I have had deano from 14 weeks old & socialised him well he didn't exactly turn out how I expected, bless him.

Nikki to be honest if Deano hadn't been with you he would have had much bigger problems. You've brought out in him the best he can be considering what he has been through. xx
