Henry’s owner contacted me because his excessive barking and charging at by passers, was not particularly desirable.

In Henry’s case his access to an invisible fence allowed him freedom but it also added frustration, which resulted in charging/barking when people walked past the house. For Henry it had become a vicious circle. Any barrier, whether invisible or not, is still a barrier.

We addressed these issues by temporarily not allowing Henry use of the invisible fence unless his mom was present. This gave her the ability to correct and redirect his behavior when it happened.

Henry is still a work in progress but I’m happy to relay that his mom is very happy with the progress he has made and continues to make.
