Training to Trust
Here’s Levi and Mabel working with Dog Behavior Team trainers, Angie and Ashley, last night. Levi and Mabel lived outdoors their whole lives and had limited interactions with people before arriving at Homeward Pet, and they’re learning that people are okay…and maybe even fun to be around.
Our Dog Behavior Team provides daily sessions to dogs who need some extra training. They often work with dogs who are reactive to other dogs, who guard their toys, or pull hard on a leash. But sometimes, we get dogs like Levi and Mabel, who’ve have had limited interactions with people. Then, our Behavior Team works on building trust and getting those dogs comfortable with simple things, like petting, playing and being around people.
