Foster Dog Training

Obviously when we get a foster dog, we are expecting some training issues. Most dogs don't get dumped at the shelter with excellent training. The dog we have now, Cher AKA "Chair" has major recall/bolting issues. She also digs in the yard and is mildly afraid of new things.

I have been focusing on her recall issue mainly because I think this will limit her ability to get adopted. She thinks it's a fun game and really tries hard to get out. She is never allow outside of her crate unless she is contained or on a long line. We have had 3 instances of her escaping and it was scary!

She is making excellent progress, considering she wouldn't come to me and let me touch her collar at all when we first got her. The next step will be to add distractions.
