In this super episode of the Sexier than a Squirrel podcast, Tom and Lauren are diving into a topic that many of us might struggle with from time to time - what to do when things just aren't going right for you!
Whether your dog is throwing you some new behaviours you didn't see coming and you find yourself saying "they've never done that before!" or even if you're just feeling like the dog training goals you have set aren't playing out the way you planned, we've got some top tips, tricks, hacks, solutions and strategies for you in this episode!
Let's take a peek!
✔️🐶 Get reflective! Take some time to review the past few days and write down how life has been for you and your dog.
✔️🐶 Give yourself and your dog some decompression time - in separate spaces if need be - or just chill out on the sofa together.
✔️🐶 What they practice they become! Put management strategies in place to stop rehearsal of unwanted behaviour.
✔️🐶 Use your dog's daily food allowance to support them, help them and grow positive associations in situations where your dog is currently struggling.
✔️🐶 Don't focus on what you can't do, focus on what you CAN do! Reset, adjust your goals and choose 3 things that you can do right now to work on the struggles you are seeing from the dog in front of you!
