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!
