Re: Fighting each other on the walk

🙂  Just wanted to share this with you.  Had a dog trainer round this evening who also is part of a local dog training group.  I had got in touch with her regarding Sooty and Scamp and their fighting on lead problem (plus insecurity issues).  She was really good.  She soon assessed that the problem was the pack hierarchy – we (make that me) were not really asserting ourselves as the pack leaders and then in the pecking order Scamp & Sooty were not sure where their position was and so confusion was created. We went out on a walk, she walked Scamp next to Sooty and Hubby, instantly Scamp reacted by going for Sooty – She corrected him straight away and told him in no uncertain terms she was not having that (curtains were twitching in the street!) Scamp sat and looked downcast..  This carried on for a short while and each time Scamp reacted he was corrected instantly and soon they were walking together!! I even had Scamp and was able to walk next to Rob for the first time in ages.  Ok it was a small start but its a start.  Scamp apparantley is dominant over Sooty but we are not acknowledging this we sometimes make a fuss of Sooty because we think he is feeling left out but really he is just acting out his place in the pack – so neither dog really knew their place.  This is putting it very breifly of course. So we are off to dog classes on Sunday so that they can get used to working around other dogs.  Looking forward to it and to putting new skills into practice…
