This gorgeous little lady is Elaine
Elaine has extensive fear based behaviours and her dedicated family have been attending one on one sessions with Trainer Aleisha.
When we first met Elaine, her mum had to physically carry her out of the car and into the consult room, she was so nervous and fearful of her surroundings. She stayed behind Mum's chair for most of the visit and was too nervous to investigate the room. We have also had to work delicately with Elaine as too much stress has in the past triggered serious health issues.
As Elaine had been too nervous to work on any foundation skills in their first couple of sessions, it has been completely up to her family to take the knowledge they have gained from their privates and apply it at home where Elaine feels safe and confident.
My oh my they have done a good job!
We have just seen Elaine for her third visit. She jumped out of the car unassisted and her tail was softly wagging! She came over and stopped for a pat with Trainer Aleisha who was amazed at what she was seeing. Elaine showed off her place training in the consult room, and also outside with various background sounds that previously would have spooked her into not being able to concentrate. What a turn around!
Elaine still has a long way to go with her rehabilitation, but she is now ready for the next step which is attending our day school service.
We are so proud of Elaine and her family and we look forward to showing more of her progress in the future #seinfieldgirl
