Sonny is very unsure in new situations and it took 3 one on one sessions for us to build a slight bond with him. Initially small tasks such as stepping onto a seat and even taking a treat off us were a big deal for Sonny. It was baby steps each week and in the fourth week we had a break through. We decided to bring Ollie along to help with Sonny's confidence building. Introducing a balanced dog like Ollie was key to Sonny finally coming out of his shell and completely trusting us. Ollie is a calm, confident and sociable dog and Sonny bonded with him instantly.
Sonny and Ollie had a good hour and a half run. We worked on sit stay, recall and confidence building.
Look at that happy Pitbull smile!
