When an adopter walks the rows of adoptable dogs, they are looking to feel a connection with a dog. In their mind they are picturing enjoying a patio lunch with a dog sleeping at their feet or walking at the park with the leash in one hand and their coffee cup in the other. Sometimes expectations fall a little short of reality.
That okay, dogs don’t come perfect. The good news is behavior is changeable! You can teach a dog to not jump up, walk nicely on a leash, perform a down stay at a restaurant.
Dogs aren’t born knowing these types of skills, so it is up to us to teach them these doggy life skills. Dogs are exceptional at adapting into the human world. They were bred to work with humans and fit out lifestyles.
I see people giving up on dogs with fixable behavior issues on a daily basis. Which is why we offer free phone support to new adopter and we offer discounts to newly adopted dogs, but sometimes this can feel extremely overwhelming to new pet parents so I decided to start a page dedicated to success stories written from the heart from pet parents of naughty dogs that became successful with a little help and understanding. Here is the LINK I hope it inspires you!
Feel free to share your dog’s success stories with us.
