In December of 2020 I got a Pomeranian- he’s now 5kg at most and a big ball of fur but when I got him he was the size of my hand almost but he had HUGE issues !! He was resource guarding everything and anything – he would bite badly – he would wee everywhere and honestly just the cutest to look at but so hard to deal with – I had endless nights crying thinking I was stuck with this agressive dog for the next 5/10+ years that hated me and I was honestly beginning to hate . I was at a complete loss …
I tried to get help over and over but I was told “ ah but he’s to cute to be like that “ “ just tell him no “ “ use a treat “ frankly bullshit advice and I just excepted that as life.
I found jay on TikTok and I remember seeing a video and it was 10 seconds long pretty much saying work on engagement- build a relationship with your dog but I had no idea what that really meant – I joined the academy and began to educate myself on training / how dogs thing – work and I Began work with my Pom ..
It was a LONG journey and we are no where near the end but the same aggressive , reactive dog is now the happiest boy ever ! He loves life and we have the best bond – we train daily and it’s his favourite part of the day !
Hopefully I haven’t rambled to much but the few weeks with him have been amazing and such a joy I never thought it could be but I not only shared this to thank jay but I seen a lot of post recently about people struggling , feeling like there aren’t getting anywhere or things will be like this forever but I promise things can and do get better ..
