Dog Of The Month - Bella Fleck

Dog Of The Month - Bella Fleck

Bella came to 4 Paws Academy just under a year ago as a young puppy. Beth and Ryan, Bella’s owners, wanted to get some basic obedience for this shepherd puppy that would grow to be much bigger in a short amount of time. Beth and Ryan were dealing with typical puppy behaviors such as potty training, leash walking manners, barking, jumping and destructive chewing. Bella was also very shy around people and nervous around new things. Now in the 2nd Level of Pet Obedience and coming to Day School regularly, Bella is such a confident girl who loves to learn! Bella comes to Day School twice a week and is already a bed dog role model for her fellow students. She has learned how to not only be confident around things she formally found to be scary, but how to control herself around things that she finds very exciting. With these news skills, Beth and Ryan can take her with them everywhere they go. We can’t wait to see her conquer more goals! Congratulations Bella!
