By Ridgeway
Here's my buddy Max. Max suffers from stress and anixety. Max went north to a good friend and Behaviourist Louisa.Having four dogs at home I managed to get him so far but time is hard to centre on one dog alone.So I packed his collar and bed and off he went.
One reason for this was to actually distance myself from Max and help him realise that life doesn't resolve around me that he could have a good experience and it did not always have to be with me.His day to day routine changed his sleeping habits changed and he was busy from morning to night.One huge issue was barking in the car.
Anyway long story short Max has grown into himself and can now enjoy time here with out needing to be sitting on my lap so to speak.He is as friendly as ever but has gained some independence from me. He will now go and find his quite spot to think things over.He is home and there are somethings that need constant work and effort but the work Louisa did with Max Ridgeway will stand to him into his years to come.
Here he is with a much less stressful expression and was happy when I walked off with out that driven need to be on my heels.Loiusa thank you so much for all the time you gave to Max. Max going north was a an idea hatched between us and has for all the right reasons helped Max through his stress and anxiety something that is always under lying but all the more controlled for the work done on his behalf.
