Dog Of The Month - Scout

Dog Of The Month - Scout

Scout started our foundational obedience class in August of last year. Vera and Charlie really wanted their adorable boy to stop jumping, nipping, pulling on the leash and gain some self-control! They wanted Scout to learn some good manners so they could trust him everywhere. Now Scout, who also comes to school one day a week, is currently enrolled in our third level of obedience and is excelling at basic commands and doing everything off leash. His aggressive behaviors no longer exist; he walks beautifully on a loose leash and loves learning what he is capable of in his classes. We are pleased with how far Scout and his family have come and are proud to call him the 4 Paws Dog of the Month for November 2015!
