This beautiful fellow is Milo, an adorable 1 year old Golden Retriever. Milo has very severe anxiety and is literally fearful of everything, any sudden movements or noises send Milo running, which can be a particular problem for his owner Glenda. So today DBM set about building a full relaxation and confidence building program for young Milo, Glenda and I worked on several practical calming technique applications, which had great effect on Milo, and Glenda took to the techniques very naturally. We practised within the park, near distractions and his other triggers and gradually he relaxed. Once the session was over, as you can see above, he was a much happier boy. Milo is still a job in progress, however I’m sure that with Glendas help and guidance he will just go from strength to strength, so a big DBM well done to Milo and Glenda, keep up the good work.
Here’s what Glenda said afterwards
Malcolm has been great, extremely professional and knowledgable. Milo has great anxiety and fear issues and he has equipped me with the tools and confidence to help him out! Already seen some big improvements. Thanks Malcolm!
