Good news we made it. 3 years of probation and no mistakes Nomistayyeaks as I say.
If you make them it is certain your dog assumes the blame for there actions and it ends up you who is legally responsible.
This my legal view of Dog training.
Glad to say His owner is the most dedicated person I have met.
Darko is special to me, unfortunately he got a bad set of cards handed to him in life. When he came into training I put extra effort into his training program with a lot of help from his owner.
I spent the first six months working with him three times a week for two to three hours at a time. The first time I went to meet his owner at her home Darko almost severely attacked me. The owner froze and I stayed still until he stopped, luckily he didn’t get any skin or me. We managed to sit down at that time, seperated and I started a program for dogs with severe aggression towards humans.
The next step was to go with his owner to court to deal with the Marin County hearing, as he was now certified as a potentially dangerous animal and I was there to stand up for him and enter him into a program to attempt to rehab him. Darko has two previous bites, one nip, and an attack. The attack was at the door of the owner’s house, he had gone thru the window next to the door in an aggressive way and then bit a woman quite a few times. The court pictures were a big wake up call for me.
I had completed a temperment test on him and after getting to know him I found him to be very sound in the nerves and very trainable. I put three months of work into him before we re-evaluated him.
Since he is on probation for three years and can’t have another mistake I decided to put some extra time having him in daycare and boarding quite a few days. It has been eighteen months and while I am not done training him, I am more proud of this dog than you will ever know.
