    Well done LouiseBeno

    It seems like you're on the right track. I agree about separating the dogs before you start food prep... And doing the food prep where they can't see each other - or the food - ideally. And then... ask each dog to do something like sit stay (half a second for Hector) before they get their dinner.

    Let us know how it goes with Trish. Thanks V&F for recommending.

    I would undo villains recommendation of Trish at 4 paws. This woman is a fool in my opinion, and dangerous one at that.
    I used her and what she did was sooo risky!

    Having been told i had a dog aggressive rottie, i headed her up big time, all i wanted to do was to use her dog class, and oval, and walk my dog on oval, whilst dogs were training at other end, to desensitise him. With evenual goal of being able to join the class to resocialise a aggressive rottie that we were fostering.

    Her greeting to my 7 stone rottie, who was eager to react to her approaching us; was to walk straight up to him face to face, full eye contact, leaning over him with a friggin biscuit in her hand, like that was gonna make the dog calm down! How many mistakes can a dog trainer make in 2 seconds? stupid woman! She was convinced that she'd be friends with this dog if she could just get close enough to feed him. Agggggg. Im still angry thinking about it.

    Go elsewhere. Or muzzle your dog whilst she works it, as she's going to get bitten hard one of these days.

    she wasnt bitten in my situation because i knew what my dog would do. and was ready. No skill on the trainers part there.
    But, 1 negative opinion, does not a bad trainer make i guess.

    Hahah love this picture.
    He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
    You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
