14 day intensive dog training
Fast forward 2 years later and the dog has behavioral issues. He's an extremely smart affectionate & friendly dog but he has some really annoying habits. Anytime anyone walks past the house, be it person or animal he goes absolutely ballistic. He lunges at the window and barks and scratches at the window and is almost uncontrollable. We were unable to properly socialize the dog and anytime we attempt to take him to the dog park or for walks he goes apeshit whenever he sees another person or dog nearby.We do have a second dog which is fully trained (hes about 12 years old) and the two get along just fine but any other animal he goes nuts. He is very difficult to walk as he strains at the leash, does not come when called when going nuts etc etc. He roots thru garbage pails in the house, steals food off of tables etc.
I'm not blaming the dog, it is our fault as dog owners to let the behavior continue to this point and we are almost ready to pull the trigger on a 14 day intensive dog training program. I was curious if anyone has had any experience with this type of training before?
It basically involves the dog going to the trainers house and living with the trainer for 14 days and getting intensive training for 14 days. Upon completion the dog is supposed to be fully trained and come with a lifetime guarantee. the cost is $2k. The dog lives with the owner and his family and is exposed to real life situations and will be fully trained.
Anyone ever done this and if so any thoughts to share?
