I could tell she hadn’t received much training in her former life so we had a few challenges to overcome. But with positive rewards, treats, and praise Tessie now walks nicely on a loose leash and maintains her composure when passing another dog. We have received many compliments from other pet owners in the neighborhood regarding Tessie’s progress and to reward her success, we’ve added weekends to our schedule.
It was a “Change a Life Day” when Tessie and her new owner were introduced. Tessie is now happy, loved and secure, and her owner has a devoted, calm, and gentle companion. I’m glad I played a small part in Tessie’s transformation. It’s amazing what can be accomplished by simply “Taking a Walk.”
