Re: Mistreated Nervous Dog Kabul

I'm so glad to hear that things are going well. Dogs have an amazing resilience, and even after terrible abuse they can still be able to move forward. You are doing such a good thing-thank you :D

Stunning dog training!

Watched 101 Dalmations tonight ( the modern one) and the dog traing that went into it was absolutely stunning... I probably noticed it this time watching because I am working so hard to train my dog right now, and I just want LLW! :D
