Dog Of The Month - Elska Abrams

Dog Of The Month - Elska Abrams

Hannah and Elska started here a few months ago to work on Elska’s shy/nervous behavior, pulling on the leash, not listening off the leash and a few other things. Elska, a four and a half year old mix breed, was so nervous during her first class that she did not want to leave Hannah’s side and did not want to eat any treats. But through hard work in and out of class and some use of our Jumpstart Social program they're doing great! Hannah was so impressed with her little girl after the first round of classes that she decided to move on and do more training. They are working on off leash hiking among many other behaviors. Now that Elska is so confident Hannah is starting to see her wanting to engage in fetch, a game Hannah always wished they could play. Congratulations!!!
