Dog behaviour tip! ๐Ÿบ ... โ€ข Understand and accept your dog's individual ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ• personality.๐Ÿ˜€ โ€ข Avoid comparing your dog ๐Ÿ• with other dogs ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿฉ especially with others of the same breed ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ• if it's only going to lead to disappointment.๐Ÿค” โ€ข First and foremost, they're individual with comparisons often not serving the way you view your dog well.๐Ÿ™ƒ โ€ข They're all unique in their own way.โ˜บ โ€ข Just like us, dogs have different strengths and weaknesses hence comparing dogs that don't appear to learn as fast as others isn't useful.โœ… โ€ข Working in the field of dog behaviour ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿฉ for many years, I come across clients disappointed with their current dog's behaviour issue stating their previous dog was nothing like this one and that they never had such an issue.๐Ÿ™ โ€ข Owners feel inadequate rather than inspired when their dog fails to behave as they expect. This is neither realistic nor helpful.๐Ÿ™„ โ€ข Comparing one dog to another is about as productive as comparing one person to another.๐Ÿ˜ โ€ข Just as no two people ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿง“๐Ÿ‘ต๐Ÿ‘ฑโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ฑโ€โ™€๏ธ are alike, no two dogs are going to progress at the same rate.โœ” โ€ข Breed and age alone can have a significant impact. Some dogs simply mature earlier. Resist the temptation to compare.๐Ÿ‘ โ€ข Love your dog โค for being the individual that they are.๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’• โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข #dogtrainersperth #perthdogtrainers #myperthpet #myperthpet #dogtrainingperth #perthdogtraining #dogbehaviourperth #perthdogbehaviour #perthdogs #perthpuppers #dogsofperth๐Ÿพ #dogsofperthcity #dogsofperth #petsofperthcity #petsofperth #perthpets #perthpuppies #puppiesofperth #puppersofperth #perthlife #perthisokay #okperth #perthdogcommunity #perthisok #soperth #perthlifestyle #dogofperth #perthsmallbiz #perth #kathykopellismcleod

Happy Sunday guys and girls.๐Ÿ˜€ โ€ข Today's story is about the dog behaviour consultation I had yesterday with a lovely family and their delightful dog Darcy pictured here.๐Ÿค— โ€ข Darcy has been displaying signs of anxiety in certain situations namely barking at guests in the house and other dogs during walks.โŽ โ€ข As I often do when I arrive at my clients home, I get onto providing solutions to reduce and resolve their dog's specific behaviour issues immediately.โœ” โ€ข As the session progressed, I asked Darcy's family how he was doing compared to previous visitor encounters and they said this is the best that they've seen him behave.๐Ÿคธโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿคธโ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸŽ‰ โ€ข We also went for a productive walk in the neighbourhood where there are dogs that concern Darcy and fortunately they were doing their 'thing' of barking when they hear or see stimuli.๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘‚ โ€ข So we we able to apply some effective behaviour modification techniques to help Darcy in this area too, so happy days.๐Ÿ˜€ โ€ข When I got home after my consultation Darcy's mum text me an update. This is some if what she said; โ€ข "Thank you Kathy. Darcy is a different boy. Things went really well with a visitor. She stayed for 45 minutes. Walked around the house and in the backyard too. We are so happy to see this much progress in such a short time. We will keep it going with neighbours to ensure we continue to improve. Thanks again for your help. It's changed our lives and Darcy's especially. (Clients name)". โ€ข This is why I continue to do what I've been doing for the last two decades.๐Ÿ’– โ€ข To help enrich the lives of dogs and their people.๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜โ˜บ โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข #kathykopellismcleod #bossbabeperthย  #puppersofperth #sheltiesarethebest #dogsofperth #peopleanddogs #sheltiesofinsta #perthbusinesswoman #supportsmallbusiness #sheltiesofaustralia #perthwomeninbusiness #perthwomeninsmallbusiness #dogsandpeople #beautifulsheltie #shelties #petsarefamily #perthbusinessowners #perthsmallbusiness #smallbusinessperth #beautifuldogsofinstagram #petsarebest #perth #perthwa #petsofperth #perthdogprofessional #perthdogtrainer #perthdogbehaviourist #perthisgreat #perthpets #sheltieslovers

Say 'hi' to Rama.๐Ÿ‘‹ โ€ข We had a stunning behaviour session with Rama and my dogs.๐Ÿ‘ โ€ข Rama's very caring human was concerned about Rama's behaviour towards other dogs so they came to my home for a consultation.๐Ÿ‘ โ€ข Well what I can tell you is that Rama's behaviour with my dogs was glorious.๐Ÿคฉ โ€ข She interacted with them all in a beautiful manner. There was no aggression whatsoever and only a high level of sociability.๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘ โ€ข It was a most productive session which has provided Rama's mum the confidence she needs to actually look forward to seeing other dogs on their walks instead of dreading coming across a dog.โ˜บ๐Ÿค— โ€ข I'm so happy to educate dog owners about their dog's behaviour and discuss body language and accurately interpreting their meaning.๐Ÿ˜ โ€ข I wish Rama and her mum continued success and many more happy and positive dog interactions.๐Ÿ˜€โ˜บ๐Ÿค— โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข #dogtrainersperth #perthdogtrainers #positivedog #positivedogs #dogtrainingperth #perthdogtraining #dogbehaviourperth #perthdogbehaviour #perthdogs #perthpuppers #dogsofperth๐Ÿพ #dogsofperthcity #dogsofperth #petsofperthcity #petsofperth #perthpets #perthpuppies #puppiesofperth #puppersofperth #perthlife #perthisokay #dogreactive #perthwalks #perthisok #reactivedog #perthlifestyle #perthpuppercommunity #reactivedogtraining #perth #kathykopellismcleod
