Hemlock Hollow Dog Training, In Harmony With Dogs

Success Stories!

From a student enrolled in the recall class:


'Regardless of what Josephine does at class on Saturday, she has already graduated from the recall class!

You may remember that my house backs up on some protected wetlands; we frequently get critters in the backyard. I went home for lunch today and let the dogs out without realizing we had a visitor inside the fence with us. I was vaguely aware of Josephine and Harry the pug chasing up and down, up and down on the other side of the yard. I thought it was nice that they were having fun until I realized I had both pugs were with me and Josephine was chasing something else entirely!

I couldn’t tell what it was --maybe a weasel. Definitely not a rabbit. She was really serious about catching it and I was afraid she'd get bitten. Without thinking, I called her (once!) and SHE CAME! She turned away from the most exciting thing she's ever seen and came! She got lots of treats inside and after I watched the critter leave, she was allowed to go out and sniff all the good smells. (I think it was a young woodchuck. It was bigger than Josephine although not big enough to be a grown one.)'

I knew you'd want to hear about it!
