We made a key mistake, falling for two lab puppies, littermates, at once. Watson and Jasper were well loved, but Watson ran off, whenever he got the opportunity, and his brother would follow along. They were dangerous to themselves and drivers trying to avoid them. They were a nuisance to neighbors and at our cottage, we worried about skunks, porcupines and coyotes. We had almost resigned ourselves to having to get rid of Watson, the instigator, when we were referred to Mr. Lessenberry by our vet. Jim came to our home for a consultation and Watson went to the Animal Learning System’s boarding for about 6 weeks. Watson returned as more obedient dog than we expected, and, in turn, schooled Jasper in heeling and sitting. We are so grateful to have two lovely dogs in our lives.
