Live Facebook Chat with Behaviourist Rosie Barclay

On Thursday 23rd November 2017 between 7pm and 8pm, there was an “Ask the Behaviourist” chat in the Jersey Dog Forum Group (via typing!) ๐Ÿถ

Pet behaviorist Rosie Barclay (Chair of the APBC) was on-line to answer your questions.ย  Many great questions were asked, among them where questions on castration, dog to dog greetings and reactions/feelings and house training. Lots of information in one place and its easy to read with some handy links and tips.

The chat was aimed at pet dog owners and answering basic questions – Severe issues like aggression can’t really be commented upon but we try to provide some good up to date resources instead. The thread was closed to new questions after an hour, so questions needed to be short and sweet! Admins are happy to take anonymous questions for live chats and raise them for you if you contact us by PM at the time. We hold these regularly with the kindness and willingness of our behaviourists and trainers, so if you would like to take part in the future keep your eyes peeled for our posts.

Thanks everyone –ย Carla and Jessica

  1. Hi Sue, Rosie has answered your question although I cannot seem to tag you in the group I have copied this below for you ๐Ÿ™‚

    “The clue is in your question ‘if she sees a person, a dog or even a car.” If you can block her view she won’t unless the window is open and she can hear or smell them. Is there any way you can do this? Regarding her grumbling it depends on how she feels towards other dogs and to know how she is feeling I would need to see her in action. Perhaps a 1-1 might be a good plan with myself or any of the reward based trainers on the Island (no telling her off, throwing discs, sounding airhorns or pulling them back on their leads). If we know how she is feeling we can change that emotion thus changing her behaviour” – Rosie Barclay

  2. Hi Sue

    Rosie wonโ€™t be taking questions online until Thursday but Iโ€™ll repost this into the group and try and tag you in the post when it goes up so that Rosie answers this then for you. Thanks! ๐Ÿถ

  3. My Spanish rescue, Chrissie, aged about 8, barks and growls like mad in the car if she sees a person, a dog or even a car, when we first set off. Does the same when I’m getting her out of the car for her walk. She also grumbles when she sees other dogs while walking but is fine with them when they meet. Can you help me please?
