We met Leslie and Tucker when Tucker was just 10 weeks old. A gift to Leslie from her cousin, Tucker was already a big and enthusiastic puppy. Despite her disability Leslie is a very active person who lives with her husband and 2 cats, the latter 3 not so sure they needed a dog in the family! After exploring training options Leslie chose an Off-Leash Training Program to allow her to enjoy her gift without concern for herself or the dog’s safety.
Working together we saw them through house training, early socialization, and in-home manners, until it was time for Tucker to enter the more formal stages of his companion training. By the age of 6 months Tucker was a fully integrated and trained companion.
“Because of my spinal disability, I need a dog that is gentle, obedient and well mannered. After initially working with Tucker and becoming frustrated, I contacted Animal Learning Systems for help. Tucker was soon off to training and after nearly two months he returned as the dream-dog I have always wanted. I love to show him off in public because I am so proud. Tucker now goes everywhere with me off-leash and I feel safe for both of us. Tucker often returns to Jim and his wonderful staff at ALS for vacations when I travel.”
