I picked up Levi on February 2. He is two years, and is a return. His reactivity was too much for his people, so I took him on. He's a beautiful boy, sits, downs, shakes a paw, doesn't heel too well yet, but we're working on it. I live in the country, and there aren't too many people around. It takes a few minutes and a treat for him to make friends. I worry a lot about him, and had a beautiful dream where he was kissing the face of a small child.
Today, George, the plumber, arrived. I locked Levi in the bedroom, and warned George. I took Levi downstairs to meet George, who 26864065-D02F-4CB5-817A-2EEE3393BFA0.jpeg gave him a cookie, and he was fine. Tuesday Feb. 23 he'll go for a training session with a professional. We're going to beat this.

Thank you for taking such good care of him! I'd love to keep hearing updates. I know the process will take time and there will be good days and bad. If you are willing to keep us updated, I'm sure there are plenty of others who will benefit from hearing about George's journey.

I'd probably learn to like people too if somebody gave me a cookie every time I had to be around a person...

Good boy, Levi! With your new human’s help, you’re going to learn the world is a safe place. And even when things get a little scary, he’s going to have your back. :)

In case covid shuts down in-person training again, this is a great resource:


There is also lots of free content available on that site.

Congrats!!! We adopted a female standard at the age of two who had a lot of issues but three years later she has turned into a wonderful family pet. We wish you the best!! Levi is such a cutie!

This is the granddog of the guy that suggested I get a rescue dog. This was a rescue dog, and his other son is arriving today, with another rescue dog. Guess I'll stay away.

You mean the neighbour and their dog, I hope.
Yep, that's why I said 'he.' You have work ahead too, but we all know that you knew that when you took in your dog. And it sounds like what you've done so far is paying off. All new dogs are a challenge.
