Transformed NS Duck Tolling Retriever!!!
I have witnessed a miracle! Maddie, my 3 year old Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever has been transformed. People who knew Maddie before she was “Duked” now use adjectives such as unbelievable, unreal, amazing, awesome, and “is that really the same dog?”
Maddie used to be dominate, assertive, harassing, controlling, noisy and objectionable. She sounds terrible but while being all of the above she was really only high energy and in many ways delightful.
After just 3 weeks of training Maddie was a changed dog. However, the start was difficult with Duke admitting that Maddie was one of the more stubborn dogs he had seen … so after our first lesson I was on my own and a great battle for control began between us and honestly for the first couple of days I really thought Maddie was going to win. By our second lesson with Duke, just one week later progress had been made. And then one day Maddie conceded, I had control and our relationship strengthened and a bond was finally there.
Maddie is now totally obedient and the thing I notice most is the change to her personality … she no longer barks when she wants something, she doesn’t harass my guests to play Frisbee, she is quiet (in fact I have never been able to teach her the quiet command because she doesn’t bark when she shouldn’t), she doesn’t chase cars any more and she has stopped barking at doors which was her most annoying quirk.
Maddie and I are grateful to Duke and his training techniques … Maddie is now a real pleasure to live with and harmony reins … many thanks!
