Hi all!

I’m looking for recommendations for a dog trainer, specialising in addressing leash rage. I have a French bulldog and he’s usually pretty chilled, but he gets super growly and aggressive when he’s on the leash – both with other dogs and some strangers

I’m looking at getting another dog next year (a rescue) and want to make sure my guy is settled before that happens.

Thanks 🙂

Another vote here for Geraldine at paws 2 play in Macgregor. She has been a wonderful support with our Labrador when he suddenly decided he had a problem with kelpies. She’s also been an endless font of wisdom and advice as we have moved into a doggy foster care role this year and managed some very traumatised pups.

Can highly recommend taking lessons at the ACT Companion Dog Club in Symonston for general obedience (and to seek their advice on lead reactivity). For one-on-one training, you could also reach out to Pups4Fun in Weston Creek; not sure they’re taking any more clients for 2017 but worth getting in touch with them for their advice and/or a suitable referral.

There is a guy who runs a company called Naughty Dog. He did some work with our dogs and he was great.

Yes – she’s fabulous. Very knowledgeable, understanding, and no stress or undue pressure put on yourself or your dog to do anything you’re not ready to do. Training/teaching is based on BAT (Behaviour Adjustment Training). Made the world of difference to our little pound rat!
