|It's definitely worth a try!
You do hear the "every dog is different," "there is no one way to train a dog," and so on. Which really is true. Most people around a long time who typically associate with trainers have those experiences where a perfectly good trainer you'd done perfectly well with just isn't getting a handle on that one particular dog, so you try someone else and in a session or two you just see this synch of things really working. When I feel like it is "not happening" and know I am dedicating myself, that's my internal buzzer.....we need to approach this some other way.
You yourself are perfectly savvy enough to discern approaches you do not want to implement, as your dog's guardian, and those that take a different approach which causes you less funk.
I would suggest trying someone who has some different take, or wants to approach from some different angle. As long as you are cool with that angle. What I can say is that you are very well versed in how your dog responds to approaches to help with her problems, so with a fresher approach you'll pretty much be able to tell close to right away if this is connecting more. Two or three sessions are all you need.....not to have some great turnaround, but to get that sense if things are looking promising.
