My heart is so full of pride tonight. This young man and his lovely family have moved mountains for this dog. They have let me try new techniques, embraced the training as a family, and have worked tirelessly with their sweet but selective dog. Throughout our training, I’ve learned a lot about myself, grown in my skills, and will forever be in their debt. He had a rough start and a few bumps along the way but he has progressed so much. I couldn’t be happier with their progress. We still have a long way to go but the future looks bright.
Special shout out to the handler of this dog for being diligent, attentive, and protective of everyone involved. I’ve learned to trust this young man with my life. I may have to give him a job one day!
