Ailsa the Cockapoo

Ailsa the Cockapoo

Ailsa is my first puppy so no understatement to say I am an inexperienced owner. However I read the books and went to puppy classes and on the whole Ailsa is a lovely wee dog, a real cutie and her behaviour wouldn't be described as problematic.

I contacted Sally when Ailsa hit the "teenage stage" i.e. 10 months she started running off when out walking in woods and I couldn't stand the anxiety. On Sally's first visit we discussed my roll as pack leader, something I hadn't taken on board, I was amazed at how Ailsa responded to her. She immediately became a much calmer dog.

Using Sally's techniques we have turned a corner. Ailsa still has a novice pack leader but we are enjoying learning together.
