Questions for this episode of FIF are a follows:
1) How do I stop the dog from jumping and scratching at the door when he wants to come inside the house?
2) What are some easy ways to build my dog’s confidence?
3) Do you screen your clients before accepting their dog? To be sure that the client will/needs to follow through with the training and they understand it’s all lifelong commitment.
3) How do you have the “come to jesus” talk with clients who are hurting their relationship with their dogs without offending them?
4) My dog is pretty well trained using prong and e collar, but he will snap when he doesn’t like the situation. He doesn’t like to be picked up, so he growled and snapped at people when they pick him up (he tolerates me). Also he snaps at the nail clipper whenever I cut his nails. He doesn’t trust other people, except me and my boyfriend, he growled and snapped at my friends several times when petting him. I know he has the right to dislike things, but how do I help him make a better choice instead of snapping and growling?
