Luke was an eight month old Yellow Labrador that was fear aggressive for nail trims. He would growl, snap and show his teeth to the staff. Phil worked about a half dozen sessions to desensitize and counter-condition Luke's undesirable behavior. Luke is now able to come to the veterinary office and have all of his nails trimmed in about 15 minutes with no stress.
We first met Will when he was around one year old. He came to our Board & Train program through the rescue he was with, RESCUEDohio. We worked with Will for 10 days on leash walking and basic manners. He was initially a very wild, excitable boy! He continued to board with us until he found a foster home, and then a forever home. We did additional training in his new home where he is thriving!
Gus, from Rescued Ohio, (a non-profit dog rescue) came to the Board and Train program after jumping up so excitedly that he head bunted his foster and the poor human needed stitches on his lip. Gus came into the facility pulling the person who transported him across the lobby. After ten days in the program, Gus was able to walk appropriately on the leash and no longer jumped up and caused people to need stitches. He was adopted out quickly after that!
Knox is an almost two year old Goldendoodle. He completed our 10 day Board & Train program for primarily come when called. Knox had a history of door dashing and jumping the fence in his backyard. He would take off down the street and it became difficult for his owner to get him back. They had a goal of getting him to the point where they could trust him to be off leash at their lake house. Knox finally got the chance to show off his skills at the cabin when he darted out the door and his mom used his recall cue. Knox was headed straight for the busy road out front but as soon as he heard his mom, he immediately stopped and ran back to her.
Sawyer is a strong young dog that opened doors on his own and would pull his owner around on walks. He also had issues with jumping up on new people. Sawyer spent five days in the Board and Train program and now sits at doors, waiting for his owners go ahead and does not pull on walks.
