Charlie’s Behavior Rehabilitation And Training – Part III


Abby and Charlie relaxing after a very busy day this past weekend. Guard dogs on a well-deserved time off.

Charlie is improving on some things, and on others, we still got a bit to go:

-Walking around where we live is getting better. I haven’t seen him do a Superman, airborne, recently. But, yes there is a but, when he is walking outside of our property Charlie is still a bit hesitant. We are working on that.

-Eating, our boy eats anything, is getting better. He is giving me space when I am about to feed him. Great job Charlie!

-Sleeping/napping in his bed is also better. He is staying on it longer and longer. Yay!

-Separation anxiety is something that most shelter dogs exhibit and Charlie is not the exception. This weekend we took him to do some shopping and when Cynthia exited the car to go to the supermarket, guess what happened? Charlie lost it. But, and this part is the good part, he did better and better as we went to different stores. I will write about separation anxiety on another post.

Is Charlie winking at me or not? I think he is. Charlie, “Mom, please write that I am a good boy, please!”

I want pet parents to know that getting a dog to be balanced is done slowly with tons of patience. For those pet parents that are frustrated I would say to them to take a moment and to keep working at it. Take my word for it, your canine companion is worth it. I know my Charlie certainly is so don’t give up. Stay safel

  1. With rescues it’s a slow slog but they reward us with such devotion. Keep up the good work, Charlie!
