Her Name is Tessie

She was put up for adoption because she was “uncontrollable.” In her first household she ran with abandon, nipped at the children, damaged furniture and frustrated the owners.

At the Dawg-Rescue.org kennel, she quickly gained a reputation of being difficult to handle. Today she is a calm, relaxed dog that helps with the rehabilitation of client dogs with the same issues she once had.

What changed? What made the difference? Quite simply, I used simple handling techniques that helped her understand right from wrong. These were techniques that made her WANT to be behave respectfully.
