Calling All Dog Owners!

Posted by Mandy at 2:32 PM
Do you have a dog? Do you have a dog with annoying behavior issues like jumping, dragging you on walks, making you drag him on walks, trying to attack your cats or other dogs, or any other behavioral issue? If you do, and you would like some help, perhaps we can help each other.

In order to better hone my dog behavior-altering skills, I need dogs to practice with. I would appreciate any experiences I could get with dogs of all breeds and it would be wonderful if I did manage to really help a dog owner with an issue or two. (or more...)

If you'd be willing to let me use your beloved pooch as a "guinea pig," let me know! Leave me a comment or email at: pupfostermom(at)gmail(dot)com.

Keep in mind, you are possibly doing this more to help me than for me to help your dog. God has given me the ability to transform dogs in my own home, but working with dogs in THEIR homes is an entirely different situation. It is one that I'm really looking to learn more about.

Also, I am not a dog "trainer." My goal is not to teach dogs to sit, roll over, and play dead. My desire is to transform relationships between humans and dogs. The "training" will really be more from me to the owner.. not me to the dog. Sound interesting? If you live relatively close by and are willing to let me experiment with your dog, let me know! I would greatly appreciate it!

You're wish is granted! :) We need to set up a time and date that will work for us both and see what we can do with your sweet pup! It's great to start when they're as young as yours is. Stop bad habits before they're really engrained! I'll email you.

Any other takers... let me know!

O.K. If you really want to work with my Pit you are more than welcome! I promise he is very sweet despite his very large appearance! If you would like me to bring him by just let me know...but I didn't really know if you meant just small dogs or not. My email is This is the one I use the most instead of my blogger email. I also have been meaning to ask for your email and phone number if you don't mind.

By the way...the dragging me while I walk him is one of the big issues with our Max. It would be wonderful if you could help with that!

I'd love to meet your Max and see what I can do! As long as he's not aggressive (I can handle dog aggression in smaller dogs.. but not confident enough to do large dogs.) Stopping pulling while walking is something I do a lot of and I'd LOVE the chance to see if I can conquer a big dog! :) I'll email you!
