This is Ava, a sweet little 2 year old Shihtzu. Ava came from a breeding farm and has been with her new owners ( Ann and Jeff ) since she was 14 months old. Ava had no socialisation opportunities in her previous life and this has left her in a very anxious state of mind. She is scared of people, dogs and cars. Realising that professional help was needed, Ann consulted her local vet who recommended DBM, so today I assessed Ava and started the healing process. Ava’s road will be a long one, but I’m pleased to say that even on our first session an indication of positive growth was clearly evident. Ann and Jeff have already made good headway towards helping Ava and are to be commended on their patience, guidance and love for this sweet little dog. Today was about setting in place a positive confidence building program for Ava to follow and also educate Ann and Jeff on the correct way to proceed. So a big DBM well done to all involved today, keep up the good work.
