Good morning Christine,
Thank you for your email and advise, I really appreciate it, I have contacted the owner and asked him to send his workers to me so I can help them and the dog how to get along with each other, he is going to bring them when he returns to South Africa, I am going to let the workers take over the role from the owners, he is such a wonderful dog, and what they are doing to him is not fair, I have thought him, sit, down, wait, and when I enter the kennel I tell him place he runs to the mat and then I enter the kennel, he then sits and wait until I tell him what to do next, I also thought him leave it, so we have monkeys an all kinds of animals in the field, so when I take him for a walk and he wants to charge them I tell him leave it, and he will come back to me and we keep walking. He is really such a good boy.
You will be very proud if you see my place, I work my but of every day, and I love every minute of it.
Last week I send a German Shepherd puppy home that I had for obedience and poisen proofing, and also personal protection, the owners are so happy with his progress and his manners.
I also have a Mallinois with me, she was with other trainers last year, they had her for 2 weeks and send her back home and told the owners she will never be a protection dog, I workerd on her socializing and I build her confidence, then I took het to XXX for help with the bite work, I felt like a proud mother that , she is doing so well with the bite work, everyone is so impressed.
Then I have a Dutch shepard also with me, she must learn obedience and man trailing, so 3 times a week I load her and the malli in my trailer and I take them to XXX, he then helps me with the man trailing and scent work and of course the protection work.
I am so grateful for your input and guidance in my life, I enjoying every second of what I do, I just struggle sometimes to fit in the farm work and kids, but I will get there.
