Christmas 2011 at DogAnswers Ranch
“Jayden” the Husky/Basenji mix had become aggressive to all animals. Her owner Dana is a Navy anti-submarine warfare specialist and is being deployed to Iraq in May and friends will be taking care of Jayden during that time.
The concern was that Dana’s friends have their own dogs and that Jayden would not get along with them.
Dana searched for dog trainers in Seattle but while there were dozens of dog trainers, there was no competent canine behavioral trainers qualified to assist with her dog’s aggression problem.
Dana was very motivated to do the right thing for Jayden and determined to get her help.
Dave the Dog Trainer’s Superdog program in Sacramento was only 800 miles away.
Dana was rewarded for being willing to honor her commitment to her best friend.
People who do the right thing are always rewarded because doing the right thing is a reward in itself.
Dana worked hard with Jayden during her 3 1/2 days in Sacramento.
Jayden is an animal with a mind of her own, but Dana is confident now that a properly managed and trained Jayden can be in the presence of, and interract with, other pets.
