Ben totally got it!
thank you for the experience.
Extraordinary is the best way to describe our experience with Rachel. It isn’t something I can understand or even properly describe. From the moment Rachel entered the house a dramatic change came over Ben, my newly adopted, totally out of control, wild but really sweet rescue.
From the very beginning he did not bark, run around in maniacal circles or jump all over her. Who was this dog? Ben learned to sit, lie down and came very close to “stay” in the short time Rachel spent with him. I, too, learned entirely new ways to communicate with my pets - - through patience, reward, eye contact and repetition. Everything I had been taught to train my dogs is no longer valid. And, by the way, my cat participated in the training!
