If she is uncomfortable with her trainer or the plan and after a discussion with the trainer still doesn't feel comfortable she needs to move on to someone that is a better fit for her and Tucker.
The problem arises if TM starts mixing in training advice from the internet with the program the trainer has given. This can set back the trainers program and can confuse Tucker more. [/B]
We need to be supportive of TM. She needs to gain confidence and lower her own stress levels and not see everything Tucker is doing is a plot against her.
Exactly! TM needs to focus hands on
first and foremost with her trainer. And stop second guessing herself. Confidence does sound like an issue IMHO. Alot of times it is not the dog but us as owners who need the training lol! Even if it takes a few hands on
trainers she can take techniques from both and that will help her become more confident and have a loving dog at the same time.
