A Teacher

He was terrified. New people, things and situations were scary and he responded through noise. He was reactive, he was fearful, he was sensitive, he was intelligent and he was just so darn sweet. We knew with the right approach, that same sweet boy we saw at home could learn the world was safe. His journey inspired the creation of a dog training and daycare business that has set the standard in the industry. He taught us how to listen to dogs, help them and learn to work together. His lessons helped thousands of dogs live successfully in our urban life.
