Well, I took the plunge, as they say, and booked a lady to come and give Duke some tellington ttouch. Yesterday was the day. We did not get to do any tellington as she started with the behaviour problems that I have with him. What a lot I have learnt in just one and a half hours! There is hope yet. In fact, I've just returned from the most stress free short walk ever. I have also learnt how to use the clicker properly and Duke seems to take to it like a duck to water. I'm going to give normal dog training lessons a short break as it really does stress me out too much which is affecting Dukes ability to handle the situation of other dogs. But if after just one short day such a change in him can take place, give us a few months and who knows what will happen. I'm about to fall in love with my dog all over again and he now also looks at me with his big brown eyes, something he never used to do.
