Stop Feeling Sorry For Your Rescue Dog

Stop Feeling Sorry For Your Rescue Dog

Your Rescue Dog Needs A Leader

Many times owners feel bad because of what may or may not have happened to the dog they adopted.  Sometimes rescue stories have been made up or even if they weren’t, you shouldn’t let it affect how you feel towards your dog.

Your job as the owner of a rescue dog isn’t to continuously coddle, allow free roam, and feel sorry for the dog. This is a huge mistake and creates a dog with behaviour issues. You may not know it yet, but you will soon realize that you’re creating a nightmare dog who has more issues than when he was rescued. By holding on to what happened to your rescue dog, you have already set the tone for what life you’re going to give them. Meaning, coddling your dog when he’s scared, sweet-talking and the list goes on. Keep this up and your dog will surely take over the household, stop listening and start acting out.

The ITrainK9 one month board & train obedience program focuses on teaching your dog to remain calm in various environments and work on their issues.

Your dog will learn to be recalled reliably, sit, stay, down, drop it, car & crate manners, indoor off-leash, environmental exposure and more.

We address multiple behavioural issues including leash pulling, doorbell reactivity, jumping, excessive or demanding barking etc.
