    DefaultScout is home

    Scout came home yesterday and it is so nice to see him. I feel like I got a different dog back. He is so much more mellow and easy to handle. He has great manners and is so focused and attentive. The next few weeks he is on tie down, which means he is tethered to me when at home and if I'm gone he goes into the create. He isn't perfect, still need to work on jumping on the counter top, but he does it less and there is nothing there for him to get. I enjoy him so much more because he is not out of countrol, I just needed some help to get started. Attached is a pic I took of him today.

    How wonderful, I hope things continue to go well for you. Keep up his training, every day, and you should have no trouble with him.

    He's such a handsome boy. I bet you were both exited to see each other again. Keep up the good work now!

    Amy,

    Honestly the change seems like a miracle. I had a hyper out of control dog and now he is fairly mellow, very affectionate and very obedient. I train him at least two times a day for 15 minutes and the training is going great. I expected improvement, but I didn't expect to have an almost different dog. He is an absolute pleasure.

    He was trained by at least 4 trainers which was good because he didn't get too attached to any of them. The main trainer who was the owner of the facility did bond pretty well with Scout. She was just amazing, absolutely magical with dogs. It was so worth the money.

    I was worried it would take a while for us to bond again but he follows me everywhere and is more bonded to me than before. I'm very proud of him.

    Well I'm off to take him on his morning walk. Thanks for all who provided well wishes. It is greatly appreciated.
