Hey everyone! Here i will write a diary of how i go about curing the aggressive behaviour of my newwest addition to the family, Quinn. It will be updated asap for everyone to read so please subscribe to this thread. Quinn has a tendency to be aggressive towards people and dogs and this upsets me. I have lived with dogs throughout my life and occasionally come accross a difficult dog sometime using methods which work and sometimes not. A brand new method has caught my attention, which i am eager to try out. I met a guy who tells me that he works with animals as his career and that he believes he has established a method of training the animal to overcome negative problems. He claims he can help any animal with any problem....i remain skeptical for the time being. Details of his work will be posted AFTER i have seen evidence that this works so you can also use the advice with your own animals. SESSION 1 I met this guy for the first time today. A very nice man with a kind hearted personality and character. We sat down and talked over a cup of tea about the problems that i was facing. Quinn seemed to be aware of the new presence and although wary, he remained cynical. We talked through what was going to happen in the next few sessions and how this new technique works. It sounds exciting! I was eager to give it a go and so within half an hour, we were interacting with Quinn. I said i wouldn't give many details away but i shall let you know how he believes this method works. By using peace of mind and bringing our levels of thinking down, the dog can then relate to us in the present moment. Through doing this, gradually and with other steps, we can teach the dog to release negative emotions and teach a new behaviour in its place. The effects, i must admit, are impressive. After an hour of becoming present and then letting go in intervals, Quinn had become alot more relaxed although still keen to raise the attention levels when he felt uncomfortable. When we got present, he would also join us in relaxation....but within a few minutes, he had gotten back up and started pacing warily around the room. I was told that this was ok and that with just half an hour practise or less each day, Quinn would start to get used to becoming present and then i was told, we could move on to the next stage of this method.... Pros: Friendly guy! Effective results seen straight away.... Cons: ....are these results related to the changing of the behaviour? No way of telling. MotherTrust.
