Superior Expertise, Thrilled with the Progress!
My new foster dog, Emmy Lou
, was a two-time foster return to the Boston Terrier rescue. She is deaf. Upon arrival to my home, she immediately reacted to and jumped on my three dogs over territorial and jealousy issues. I had been told "she doesn't like her crate, and she doesn't like being left alone." What an understatement that was! Emmy Lou hated being in her crate so much, her protests were giving her severe digestive upset.
I immediately called Canine PhD for a consultation with Meredith. She quickly identified the issues and designed a individual training program. We also identified a safety plan to keep all of the dogs safe.
Within three weeks of individual time with MarLee, Emmy Lou began to relax and respond to her training. She quit being so reactive at home, and was more tolerant of the other dogs and their rapid movements. She began to accept being separated from me while in the house. She is allowing me to very slowly re-aquaint her with the crate.
Emmy Lou came to my home as a foster dog that would never be adopted. Today, she is very near being ready to go to her forever home.
