I started training Emma, because I was also training her sister Gabby at the time. How could I refuse two Akitas?
Emma, unlike Gabby, is a little more high strung than her sister. Two different dogs, two different personalities. One owner with not many complaints and the other a little more frustrated.
Sometimes it is hard not to compare dogs. You also have to remember that large breed puppies are still babies, regardless of their growing size. Some dogs need a little more patience and a different approach. And sometimes you need to be the disciplinarian their mother was, because mother dogs don’t fool around.
Once Emma’s mom realized she couldn’t be the marshmallow all the time, the better their relationship became. Respect is earned, not given.
I had the best time getting to know these friends and their gorgeous dogs. Starting out right from the beginning with training was their top priority. I am happy to say they succeeded. They did the work and their dogs delivered.
Nice work you guys.
