From our wonderful trainer, Candace, in Ft. Worth, who is holding pre-approved group training classes as well as individual instruction for her clients to help with socialization:
“The group session with the Bates, Singhania and Ward families was outstanding this past Sunday! We started out at the Heritage Botanical Garden to work on commands. We focused on loose-lead walking, along with a more formal “heel.” We also worked on “cover,” “under,” and “dropping the leash”. All of the SDiTs are improving greatly. After a long walk (nicely) around the main part of the garden, we headed off to a nationally known chain store to practice public manners. All SDiTs are still showing no startle reaction and were all successful at a particularly difficult “leave it” challenge! The day ended with everyone standing in line (as it usually happens) and the entire group did wonderful. Boomer is booming less, Simba is coming out of his shell, and Buddy is learning to read his handler better. I have high hopes for these families and their SDITs!”
WONDERFUL WORK TO ALL FAMILIES AND THEIR SDITS!
