Nathan and Owen

From trainer Beverly, who is working with Wounded Warrior, Nathan, who suffers from PTSD, major depressive disorder, and bipolar disorder related to childhood abuse and military service, and his SDIT, Owen:

“Nathan was having an issue with Owen barking at new things (animals at theme parks, the “man in a space suit” at the museum, etc), He does tend to bark at certain things he doesn’t understand or recognize (ceiling fans) and, wants to chase the squirrels and birds. We worked on getting him to focus on Nathan and the yummy treats instead of the squirrels and birds. We also worked on Owen’s sit/down stays amid distractions. Owen is proficient in sit, down, stay, watch me, and heeling. We will be trying the Pet Corrector to control the barking.”
