Like many of our Pack dogs, Jack came to us after we had the fortunate opportunity to work with him and his human family. Jack and his sibling sister, Kelly came to us in September of 2009, for our intensive, 6-week In-Patient Behavioral Rehabilitation Program. This was one of those cases where the family (mom, dad and several kids) were extremely loving and affectionate to their dogs, however, these dogs needed much more than love – they needed Leadership. Both Jack and Kelly were horrifically Fear Aggressive to the point where the family felt they had no options other than euthanasia. The family had tried other “trainers” who were unsuccessful. In a last-ditch attempt to save the dogs they loved, they decided to make one last call…..to us. That call changed their entire lives.
Kelly now lives back home under the tutelage of Brian Linares who is accepted the job of being the Packleader that Kelly so desperately needed. Jack, on the other hand, was so much more deeply disturbed. After much deliberation – we opened a spot in our Pack to him and have not had any regrets. His comical ability to welcome new dogs and help them acclimate to the pack is absolutely astonishing. Not a day goes by that he doesn’t make us laugh!
Now, many years later, Jack has emerged as one of the best dogs we’ve ever seen when it comes to helping other dogs in need. That’s why we call him the Jedi-Master!
