Bosco is our 2 year old Boxer who we have had since he was a puppy. He has always been full of energy no matter what we did with him. As he aged he started to become very disobedient. He would jump on people, take food off the counter and was impossible to walk with his pulling and reactivity to other dogs. When people came to visit he would have to be put away as he would not stop jumping on them.
So we did some training with him with a local Halifax trainer, all positive reinforcement training and it did not change anything. So after a few months we decided to try another trainer who used some corrective methods that helped a bit but was still having a lot of issues.
One day we had Bosco at the dog park and he got into fight with multiple dogs and we ended up at the vet emergency room with him. At this point we decided we needed do something that would work as Bosco was becoming aggressive towards other dogs. We started training Bosco with Ted from Unleashed Potential. After only three lessons we were able to walk him properly on leash, he no longer counter surfed, no longer jumped and when people came to the house he could stay out and meet people the right way. Wow, we were impressed and people thought he was a totally different dog. We have continued on with training and now Bosco can meet other dogs without worrying about making a trip to the vet emergency.
Bosco now spends his days doing whatever we do and was even able to go on vacation with us this summer. Recently we just adopted another adult Boxer and started implementing Ted’s training methods with him as well. This is something that this time last year we would not even dream of. Ted, thank you for allowing Bosco to become part of our lives again, without you, it could not have happened.
