MAX: A Story of Hope
COMPANY SPOTLIGHT: ALL ABOUT TRAINING DOGS
Max started his life as a very young Lovebugs puppy. At around 8 weeks old his new family found him and took him home to live happily every after. Max was so happy when he found out that he had four humans (mom, dad and two kids) and another dog to love, play and share his life with. He was truly a loved member of the family. A few years went by and things seemed to be going well when Max’s mom’s work scheduled changed from part-time to full-time. Soon the family started to notice some changes in Max.
At first the changes were small, he would bark when everyone left the house, tear apart a pillow and sometimes he would urinating inside the house. The family decided to use the crate to help him settle when they weren’t home.
|Things became worse and Max would break out of the crate. Once free in the house, he would become destructive and chew apart the couch, the dining room table or any item he could find. As time went on the family began to get anxious when they would come home dreading what they might find that Max tore apart while they were gone. They decided to keep Max in the crate when he was home alone. Max began to refuse to go into his crate and when he was forced in he would become stressed, bite and bend the bars of the crate and spending all of his time barking and trying to break out.|
|After a few training lessons the family was excited, relieved and prepared to help Max relax with positive reinforcement training. Max no longer becomes anxious when they leave and he voluntarily goes into his crate. Now, the family describes Max as “an amazing little dog.”
