It's more than enough for me that there is a possible happy ending for your boy.

What's the name of the trainer? I'd like to give them a call and see what they have to say if it wouldn't be intruding too much.
First name only is fine. I know most of the trainers there.

Jessie is his name. And I would love for you to talk to him. Please let me know your thoughts if you do get in touch with him. I have his cell phone number I can pm you if you need it.

Great story!!! I hope they are able to work with your pup so you can bring him home. If not, then he can be a working dog, saving lives.

Good luck, keep us updated.

I'm glad you are getting some help and not giving up. Please keep this thread updated if possible. I'm curious to know where you took him before deciding on going with VLK?

Could you also clarify your pups age? Is he 7 months now or did you get him in January at 7 months of age....I am assuming he's 7 months, though seeing that level of reactive aggression in a young pup is strange.

Yes, he's 7 months, almost 8 months old now. The aggression really started the end of April, so he would have been 5 months old then. We got him at 7 weeks which I felt was way too young but the other families picked up their pups so the breeder wanted ours to go as well.

Another update!

The good news just keeps coming! My husband spoke with the trainer this morning and he said he has NO DOUBT that our boy can come home! He said he is a great dog and will be a great family dog for us. He said he is no way an aggressive dog, he just basically is making stupid decisions. He has him off muzzle, meeting everyone. People are coming up to pet him from behind, the front, all sides basically and he is doing just fine! We are going down there for a visit next week so that he can try to recreate the problems we are having with him so that he can work on correcting him, and to teach us how to correct him. He thinks one more visit after that and we will be able to BRING HIM HOME!!!! I can't believe it! I finally told the kids today and they are so excited! They keep telling our golden that her "brother is coming home soon"!

I'll post after our visit next week if any one is interested. Also, this trainer is being unbelievably kind and generous to us so I would love to bring him a gift of some sort. Does anyone have any ideas what I could bring for him? Or should I bring something for all the staff like a basket of cookies or something? I'm so grateful to them, I cannot show up empty handed!
