Finally found a trainer that is willed to work with my dogs

So I finally found a good trainer that is willed to work with my dogs and do it from scratch.
Funny part is, it used to be moms tatoo guy that tatooed the puppies. He's over 70 years old and has a great amount of experience. I met him today and he checked out the dogs. Even said that Yukon is completely free and that it shouldn't be to hard to get him to bite since he plays.

I am willed to give it another shot to see if Yukon fully recovered and if we can get him via the play and tickle it out it'll definitely boost his selfconfidence even more.

What ya'll think?

I'm curious too, why the other trainers didn't want to train your dog?

Well, they labeled him as weak nerved and somebody even told me to shoot both of them. People literally talked both of them down. They said that they don't have any drive, not even a play or ball drive, and that they are not what a baerenfang used to be. But that's not true. Both of them have drive. Zenzy has lots of drive and is naturally aggressive. Yukon had to learn how to play and once he figured it out that it is fun to chase a ball and even more fun to play tug oh war it's hard to stop him once he actually started playing.

They talked so much that I was even wonderin myself if it's just because he got abused or ife he has weak nerves but he proofed everybody wrong. I have him for 10 months now and he's come a long way. The very first day I got him he ran away from people, was scared of his very own shadow, any and every fast movement, cars, didn't know what a ball is and how to play and people laughed about him.

And that is why everybody wrote him off as weak nerved. They didn't believe that he actually got abused because whenever there is a skittish weak nerved dog people use the abuse thing as an excuse.

But... he proofed everybody wrong and gawsh I so want him to get the SchH1,2 and 3 just to kick everybodys ass and especially that guys ass that told me to shoot them. I would love to see him chasing those helpers that said all those bad things about him... but I guess that's a bit selfish.

Where will you be training?
My Rex got his BH in Ketch before we left. It is my husbands hometown. His grandfather also trained his dogs there.
