Becoming A Dog Trainer With Reddington Sparrow

Project 2017-05-18 22:47:28 +1200

Red at 10 weeks

Over the last four months I've been working with my puppy Reddington Sparrow daily, she's a bit of a rescue chihuahua cross with a following on facebook already (click here - Reddington Rules). She is an amazing dog, super smart but she has always been overly fearful of people and is fear aggressive towards people when they approach her, and while she has come a long way, including four different puppy schools, mega daily socialisation and desensitisation, she still has a way to go. I've loved the training process that is transforming her so much that I want to become a dog trainer!

After 3 months of Doggy Dan training she is learning to just be a dog, relax and leave the worrying to me! So if the target for this project is met the money will go towards paying the cost of the 12 month Dog Trainer Academy course. The courses early bird fee is US$3799 which, depending on the exchange rate, is about NZ$5200 - NZ$5500. So this project is looking to fund $3500 (minus pledgeme fees) of that total course cost. The Dog Traininer Academy has kindly agreed to reserve a place for me in the course at the early bird rate and join after the registration deadline, so that I can run this PledgeMe project.

Experiencing how much this training philosophy has grown Reddington and myself already, makes me excited to take Red with me on this 12 month training journey. I have an opportunity now to share this process with you all via her facebook page and potentially create a visual timeline and record of its effectiveness through our ongoing success. Maybe I'll come out of it with a focus on working with 'small fear aggressive towards people' kinds of dogs, as that has been our journey to date. I'm excited to see where this takes us both! So if you'd like to jump on board with a pledge or by just following our journey on facebook, please do xx Sam RB and Reddington Sparrow

Now for some cuteness and some examples of where Red has come from and how far she has come already...

This is Red when she was very young, afraid of most things. In this case she was scared by the wind - click here
