Within one short year I quickly found myself pregnant and with two rescue dogs.
I tried to teach them with what little I learned from TV and the internet. At my lowest point I even used a shock/vibrating collar. I wish I sought out professional help. I decided I would become the professional that I needed.
The school I chose, along with my mentor, taught me force free, science based training. I was amazed at how little I actually knew about dogs, and surprised how the positive methods transformed my dogs into happy and relaxed members of the family.
