Sam completes training

Sam finished his 2 weeks of training with Dave Ranieri, a truly amazing dog trainer based in Hanover, MA. The Shelter invested the money to send Sam to Dave for training after he was returned due to biting a child in the home we had placed him in. Fortunately for Sam, he caught the eye of a family willing to foster Sam until Dave had time to train him, and then work with Dave several times to make sure they would be able to not only maintain the training, but also continue it. These photos show Sam near the end of his training, working a the local pet supply store, and then working with another dog Dave was training. Dave even had his 2 year old son giving the dogs commands and having both dogs happily cooperating! You can read more about Dave on his website:
