Tink is the second dog that we have had trained at Man’s Best Friend. Our first dog was a border collie and we had done research on this breed and knew they were smart dogs and we expected her to train well. Tink, however, is a mixed breed that we got from our local animal shelter. On the day we picked her up, she was very sweet, gentle and docile. The next day ( and from then on), she was anything but docile. She had way more energy than what we were expecting. But after Tink’s two week initial stay at Man’s Best Friend, we have seen remarkable progress. One of the areas of concern that came up with Tink was while she was eating. She would get very aggressive about her food if anyone or our other dog came near. Tink’s trainer encouraged us to make Tinl “work” for her food. So we began making her “sit” before we put the food bowl down and we made her “stay” until we told her it was okay to eat. This has worked amazingly well!! Tink is much calmer now than when we first got her. She still has a ways to go, but we are confident that with the help we get from her trainer, she will become just as obedient and enjoyable as our other dog. We highly recommend Man’s Best Friend especially if your dog is going to be an indoor dog.
