One of the things I love is taking on issues with pets that can help their health.
Here’s a little dog I have been working with. Chihuahua’s can be quite snippety, so you learn a thing or two when you deal with that bread.
This is what I’ve been working on:
- SNIPPY. She would get very snippy when you picked her up. A friend had mentioned he’d tried to bite before. So, for a few days I’ve left that alone, and worked around it to build her confidence. I’ll send you a video on that later.
- RUNNING. She would RACE in her walk in the park so fast she looked like a paso fino, and the stress meant she couldn’t walk far, at all, without overheating and unable to catch her breath. I’ll make a video of that tomorrow or the next day, and put it up for you….so check back to see how I fixed that.
- WEAK BACK LEGS/FITNESS. The dog couldn’t jump on the bed. I know Chihuahua’s that can jump on the bed. Now this dog is old, so, fair enough, but have a look at the video below, at just one fun way to getting those old legs working and fitter! Plus she was SO EXCITED. Her eye sight isn’t the best, so it was a huge exercise in trust coming back down….so take a look at how much fun and trust this dog has on the video below.
- ACCEPTANCE OF THE PAT. The little girl wouldn’t accept patting (petting spell USA) very well. She would cower as though you were about to beat it to a pulp, and I’ve know the owner, and the owner is gorgeous, it’s just a Chihuahua’s “thing”. I lovel love love these little dogs, but, no offence, a lot of them are hypochondriacs/attention seekers, lol! They’re SO CUTE! I’ll film that tomorrow how I fixed it and put it up on this website again…so check back!
I know my fans are used to me producing videos on Piaffe/Passage and flying changes, or some fine point of judging dressage, but isn’t it beautiful, at the end of my career to be able to use all that knowledge to give back to a little doggie who is going to live longer, be happier, and make her Mummie happy for a very long time.
(PS Ignore my funny pretend voice, I was trying to be cute for her owner who is currently in Antartica, and I’m house/pet sitting for her).
