I have an interesting
Atlas update for you. We had been having a hard time with him in the last several months purely because he is so high drive.
He is a fantastic dog, he just has A LOT of energy that never seems to get tapped out. I have tried exercise and he can go
all day long. The dog daycare thing is fine but also has not been a remedy. We knew he needed more training to channel all
this energy but weren't sure exactly what to focus on.
I found a trainer in Dover that I knew could help me because he specializes in working breeds. He met Atlas today and was
absolutely blown away at his prey drive and the different aspects of his personality~ the fact that he is fearless, has good
recovery and seems to be an overall outgoing, friendly dog. He said he would be perfect for PSA, the protection work-- can't
quite remember exactly what it's called.
said he would even be willing to take him to trials when we get there. For now, he is starting a 3 week, 5 days per week bootcamp
and then on to more specialized training with me. I am really excited and feel like he will finally be working to his full
potential. I showed this guy Halle's family lines of Schutzhund titles and again remembered just how much Atlas is just behaving
as he was born to. He's a working guy. haha
I will keep you updated on his training. I feel like there are big things in his future.
Resi is doing great as well. Hope you are too!
