So do you want to know the answer to the question that gets asked of me all the time????
Does he work?
Well this is how I answer that to my friends, family and to the complete strangers that ask.
He is still in training! I know such a blanket statement. It covers if he doesn't work and well if he does.
From all that I have learned this is a process and while we don't get consistent alerts every now and then we get that one, that one alert that well... keeps me focused and wanting more! (the I think this is an alert) We have busted our butts training this dog to not only alert but give us a trained alert and well ontop of the trained alert he needs to be the most behaved dog when we are out. I am striving for nothing but the best out of him and doing all that I need to do to make it happen.
In no way shape or form is this process easy. I have had my highs and lows with this dog the training and frankly with the organization.
