Hi, Jim, I just wanted to send a note to update you on the long-lasting effects of our training with you.
Just this week, we decided to take in our first foster dog – he is a year or less, with lots of energy and assertiveness. We introduced the dogs as you’d taught us, and it’s been less than 24 hours, but things are going well so far.
In the attached pictures, you’ll see Lily (I think you will remember her temperament) and Oscar doing the ‘who’s in charge dance’ – and Max off to the side, barking and hoping for treats (not after barking, of course!). He is still loud! In another picture, you’ll see the ‘sit for treats’ line-up.
And then just one other picture of Oscar, the foster. There have been a few ‘skirmishes,’ but I feel pretty confident in what we learned from you that will help us keep peace in the house until Oscar is adopted and help teach him some skills that will want people to adopt him!
He’s very cute and pretty smart. Oscar will be adoptable from Gulf Coast Cocker Spaniel Rescue if you know anyone who might want him!
Just wanted to let you know that we continue to benefit from your lessons!
