Ava via Bob Merrick

Ava and I have not been to many classes lately. Sandee and I have been extra busy starting an alpaca farm and dealing with many things. However I wanted you to know that there has been great progress in Ava’s socialization. If you will remember socialization with both humans and other dogs was a problem for AVA, although it appeared to be more of a fear aggression. Ava is now great with all people and great with children. She also is now friendly with most dogs and at the most growls if they irritate her. Things have worked out better than I expected and the classes really helped with her confidence and with her getting use to other people and dogs. Again thanks for helping a rescue dog to fit in with people and other dogs. Her life is much better for it.
