Hi everyone. First post here. 14wk pup, Kai, hes gold. Some reassurance wanted. So today I gave him a leg wash with a 'mud daddy' portable washer..he's not fond of washing like many pups I'm told. Anyway, I held him by harness and forced it..which he coped with. But ran away and as I tried to coax him back..without using his recall word..I used a lap slap "here boy". Anyway.. did a lap slap here boy in the house and he HATED it barked a lot at me..like a no no no. Anyway I realised I've made a negative associated experience so got a few treats and did the action and praised but is still off with coming to me that way. I'm gunna just leave it a few days to reset and work on positive association.. then in a week or so do some slow slow washing training keep it a happy experience.. Any advice or doing the right thing? Thanks Paul.
