A priority for his owners was to work on his seperation anxiety. Whenever his owners left the room or they put him in his crate/pen he would cry and howl. Cooper will now settle in his crate for a few hours during the day even when left in the house alone. He will also settle through the night too.
Cooper also learnt to be calmer around people and although he does still get excited he is much better at keeping his feet on the floor! He has also learnt to be calmer with other dogs and cats in the house which will help with the owners older dog and cat.
Cooper made great progress in all areas of obedience, he can now reliably complete sit, down, middle, wait and emergency stop around distractions. He is also able to walk on a loose lead around distractions.
We have done lots of socialisation with Cooper, getting him used to lots of different environments indoors and outdoors aswell as different animals and sounds such as the road side. This is really important as his owners want to take him to as many places as possible including their holiday home in Spain which they use the ferry for.
Cooper was a lovely boy to train, so eager and sweet! We will be working with his owners now he is home to continue his training 🙂
