Best buds! (Boaz, my dog)

  1. tastyacres
    My one and only animal- Boaz, My dog!

    Boaz came to us at a young age of 5-months-old...he was perfect, or so it seemed....

    We had him 2-months before we noticed some problems such as possession, anxiety, fear, allergies, etc wich has led to the long years of training I have done!

    When I started training I didn't know how far it would take me but I did know it was going to be a fun experience!

    I did a lot of running/walks with him, as well as teaching him lots of tricks such as sit, shake, limp, dead-dog, lay down, leave it, turn/reverse, spin, jump (4-feet or higher), sleep, off-leash-heel, some herding (basics for catching animals), sing, fetch, mark with paw, come, stay, and kisses (I think that is all but we are working on more), working on roll over along with attention!

    It came down to almost re-homing him twice but my dad always gave me a chance and it worked! A lot of training and love can go a long way...I trained him for 2-hours a day at one point.

    With all him and I have been thru I am so proud of him!!!

    just over a year! Those eyes were begging for help, a partner in life wich I couldn't resist!

    I found a stick instead (I actually ended up throwing that stick in the water because he was so upset that his rock sank, lol)!
