Update on Zelda
So since I've posted quite a few threads on Zelda and her behavior and the "problems" i've been having with her. I thought it would be a good idea to update those who care or who helped me out.
I have a trainer who will be working with Zelda and I September 10, as I have been saving some money for that purpose. And will hopefully be able to do a second session, or third.
This trainer has been working with aggressive dogs for 10 years and works with fear based aggression as well as the other things I need to work on with Zelda.
She wasn't my first choice of trainer, in fact I've never heard of her until a little while ago. But I've been communicating with a her for a bit and will at least give it a go and her prices are decent. $75/hour + $30 gas and two months follow up phone and e-mail and a written up detailed assessment. And any session after that is $55/hour +$30 gas.
I told her my three big things that I need help with are her fear aggression towards people, separation anxiety and her prey drive with our cats and explained that with some of the things she has been improving. But I want a professional opinion to come here and see her behaviors and to give advice according to that.
I truly appreciate the help and advice given from many people. It's been a rough road and I don't get a lot of support here. We have been making some baby steps in the right direction and its all thanks to you guys! Also thanks for advising me to getting the help with a trainer, because I think i do need the extra help. So thanks guys!!
