Sam in training

Sam was returned to the shelter about a month ago, after he bit a child in the home that had adopted him. Since he is a good dog in so many ways, we struggled with what to do with him, since we couldn't simply place him in another home. Last week we sent him away for 2 weeks of training, and he is doing very well there. It was a huge financial commitment for the shelter to make, but we think all pets deserve a second chance. Here are a few of the photos the trainer sent us showing Sam learning to calmly stay in his place even with many distractions. His foster family had a training session at the dog trainer's facility yesterday to learn how to continue working with him after he completes the two weeks of on-site training.
