Helping you and your dog to reconnect

Is your dog barking up the wrong tree?

Or are you barking up the wrong tree? Or are you both barking up the wrong tree?

This is the place where you can get help in finding out where communication between you and your dog is going wrong, why your dog is showing unwanted behaviours and how you can start your path towards problem-solving and change in order to build a better future relationship.
