It’s only going to get worse and more time consuming and costly to fix. And in this crazy new world of energy bills and inflation, can you really afford to leave it any longer?
Money isn’t everything of course. There are more important things at stake.
Your dog’s behaviour can drive a wedge between you and your loved ones.
Things continue to get more tense at home. Nobody gets it. And they don’t want to come on walks with you and ‘the dog’ anymore, and if they do, you’re not in-the-moment with them because every last bit of your mental and physical energy goes into preventing your dog’s meltdowns… you’re sending a clear message of how much more important ‘the dog’ is than they are.
The spectre of rehoming looms and the guilt terrifies and paralyses you. The last thing you want is for your dog to be one of the 130,000 to enter a rehoming centre this year, just another statistic. You blame yourself and you worry about your dog constantly. You love your dog but it’s so hard!
You need hope. You know that of course it will take time to retrain your dog, and you made a commitment to them that you wouldn’t give up. But there’s no light at the end of the tunnel — no tunnel at all in fact. You feel lost, scared and stuck.
Stress, overwhelm, worry. The cost to your mental health is the ultimate price you pay.
Your health, your peace of mind, your family… they need you to make a decision NOW.
