Training Program: Canine Behavior Training Program (CBT)
Hometown: Cranston, RI
I just wanted to give you an update on Bandit but I don’t where to begin!
My boy Bandit is growing into a wonderful dog! We walk on a daily basis for at least 10 blocks. He clearly looks forward to the walk and is at the back door by the afternoon, if we haven’t done our walk that morning! We walk in the rain, snow, sleet and even in freezing cold rain!
He is getting better when encountering the things that frighten him like; cars, trucks, people and other dogs. We stop and wait for the cars and people to go by and he is getting better ll the time!
I give him a lot of positive reinforcement, constantly telling him he is such a good boy. His recall is outstanding and he is a very obedient dog.
He has also bonded well with Ron and they have a ritual every morning where when Bandit gets up the first place he goes is to see Ron. He can now see Ron all dressed up for work in his black top coat without getting frightened! That was NOT possible prior to training with you!
My husband and I have been going out during the day at least once a week to ensure that Bandit understands when we are not home he must remain in the crate.
When I tell him he has to go to bed he gets in the crate without incident. As I stated previously, Bandit continues to make progress on a daily basis.
We are all so pleased with the results your training provided for Bandit, I can’t thank you enough for this amazing dog.
Give my best to Laura & the Pack!
