After a few tricky encounters with dogs off lead coming up to our nervous rescue (Hazel), we were really nervous of letting her interact with other dogs, not wanting any more bad experiences.
Antonia was amazing helping us arrange a session with her dog, Obi, which was just what we needed. We were able to watch their interaction, while Antonia talked us through the body language they were displaying and vocalisations they were making which left us way more confident to correctly read and guide Hazel’s interactions with other dogs in the future.
For the first time since adopting her we were able to see Hazel really engaging in play in a safe environment with another dog and she LOVED it.
Obi was a great role model and teacher telling Hazel when enough is enough and helping her regulate her play.
