I adopted a my dog in June of last year. I was told by his previous owners that he had basic obedience/crate training, but to my surprise, he did not. He spent most of his days in a crate and wasn’t desensitized or socialized properly. He didn’t know how to be a dog. In the beginning, I had no idea what I got myself into. I cried a lot because it felt like I was failing him. With love, patience and determination, I was able to slowly help him learn how to be a dog again. Of course we have our good days and bad, but I wouldn’t trade the hardships for anything in this world. He has shown me the definition of true love and patience. He inspires me everyday to want to become trained and certified so that I can help other dogs and their humans.
