A disability is a disability is….an opportunity. Flash came to us with a wonderful, loving personality and a reported separation anxiety….there are many levels of this, some quite severe, some quite mild..so we tested and worked with Flash and thought that with time, patience, exercise, care, and a secure large outside kennel…Flash might conquer the worst parts of anxiety. He needed the help, attention, guidance of a human or humans who saw the effort and judged it to be worthwhile; would there appear such people? Enter Tom and his family. "Everything is going great with Flash. We are keeping him exercising and teaching him all kinds of new stuff. The girls love him, he is so gentle with them, yet seriously active when we want him to be. On the anxiety side of things – we have been working with him hard. We had him home solo for 4 hours the other day and no problems. We have the kennel in the garage for added warmth plus, harder for him to get out. He's doing great. Here's a video we threw together the other day. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10203114300324752&set=vb.1423941165&type=2&theater Thanks again, Tom" No, Thank YOU Tom.It's a sad day when you realize your dog is more talented than you. Took Flash out for a quick exercise and thought I would film it. Don't hold the 2 minute editing job against me (I don't have time to make dog videos these days). Not quite ready for Letterman's Stupid Pet tricks yet… but he got his exercise in. Note to self: Do not leave tennis balls outside in a snowstorm. First they are hard and second they are cold on your hands!
