Chester, the rescue Patterdale Terrier cross with barking issues

Jo and Carl were struggling with Chester barking at other dogs on the lead; they thought he may be dog aggressive and were reluctant to let him off the lead because of this.

We soon worked out that Chester was pulling hard on the lead as he needed to run off some energy!

What they said after our session:

“Chester has less ‘lead rage’ and doesn’t bark as much at other dogs. We’re able to let him off lead now and he socialises well with dogs.  There’s also less pulling on the lead, his recall has improved, and he’s much calmer and happier in and out of the home.

You both gave me loads of confidence in handling him.”
