Some dogs walk through our (collective) doors and stay a while. It happens. It’s part of the reality of animal rescue. Sometimes it makes sense. Maybe it’s a bonded pair that must be placed together.  Or maybe the dog needs to be the only one in the house and all of you looking here want MORE dogs! So,… Read More

Trainee Emmett and Trainer Dave are working on Emmett’s comfort with public spaces. Last week they took another field trip to Bass Pro Shop. Trainer Dave said it was a stressful hour for Emmett.

Emmett Chows Down

Posted: February 28th, 2014

This has been on our Facebook page but if you haven’t seen it here’s the video of Emmett chowing down on dinner. He’s the cutest waiting so patiently, sitting so pretty for dinnertime. At his trainer’s house, he is on a raw diet. That’s right, Emmett’s bowl has some good, raw chicken–bones and all–in it…. Read More

Two is a Date. Four is a Party!

Posted: February 26th, 2014

The videos below were posted by Emmett’s trainer Dave today. Who doesn’t like watching dogs romp around? The best thing about these is to see Emmett having such positive interactions with other dogs, male and female. With some of what we were hearing, there was concern that Emmett would have to be an only dog… Read More

It’s Fun to Be a Dog

Posted: February 24th, 2014

Emmett had a fun-filled weekend. Play date with Sasha. (The speed is accurate. I didn’t speed it up! Fast pups!) Next he went on a field trip out to Westminster, MD where he got to run free on acres and acres of land. Happy dog! It’s fun to be a dog, and super fun to… Read More

emmett and sasha

Big Sir Emmett had a date with ABR Alum Sasha Bean. Video coming tomorrow! They had some fun together. I was on the jittery side because since Emmett started boot camp training he’s played with trainer Dave’s dogs only. All went well and trainer Dave was perfect at intervening when Emmett tried to push the… Read More

Sit on the Dog

Sit on the Dog

In yesterday’s post, you saw the Dodge doing his version of “sit on the dog.” Clearly he wasn’t sitting on Emmett so what was that all about? “Sit on the dog” is a technique that establishes a bond with you and your dog while also conveying some messages to him: your leadership and your dominance….

Learning Doggie Zen

Learning Doggie Zen

“I WUUUVVV YOUUU SOOO MUCH!” Emmett is a big love and he wants to share it with you. All. The. Time. When he started boot camp, only 5 days ago, he didn’t now how to simply chill and be comfortable on his own. Fairly typical from a dog who hasn’t been socialized well and hasn’t… Read More

Play Hour with Emmett

Emmett is running the gauntlet of Show Me YOUR Dog Training balanced dogs. Thanks to trainer Dave and his amazing dogs, Emmett’s learning how to be socially appropriate.

Who says I have problems with other dogs?

Posted: February 17th, 2014

Really, cannot believe how quickly Emmett is learning the ropes! Guess that’s what being a good trainee is all about. Today Emmett met The Duck. Duckie knows the ins and outs of dog speak and pretty much what it takes to be an awesome dog. (Case in point: Duck shows how a lady gets into a… Read More

If Only I Could Be Your Lap Dog

Emmett just wants to sit on your lap and be loved like he’s a wee pup. Who can say “no” to this face? Day 2 of boot camp and Emmett is already starting to shed some of his past life. At his first kennel in December, they said all the kennels on every side of… Read More

Trainee Emmett

Emmett is a young guy who was kept outside by a supposed breeder. You may remember Sydney and the fun of her Candy Company pups born in December. Emmett is one of Sydney’s pups from a previous litter. When we were contacted to help Sydney, Emmett was also rescued by us. Since then, Emmett has mostly… Read More
