Lara is welcome to stay in our home for as long as it takes to find her the perfect home. A home with patient and understanding owners who will enjoy what she has to offer at the speed and pace she can offer it. Owners that are prepared for the first few months to work slowly with her and to build a loving and trusting relationship before they expect anything from her. Owners that are prepared to give her adequate exercise and mental stimulation in a safe environment while she assimilates to her new home. Owners that can wait for the day when she feels safe enough to give back the same amount of love and trust that they have put forth first.

The next big goal is to get her leash trained. Whenever you attach something to her collar she shuts down. Now she ‘likes me’ and will sit with me and on me I can begin to desensitize her collar and leash and then we will learn to stand still on a leash and then take some steps on her leash. This will be the final obstacle before she can go to a new home (mmmmMMM maybe I will wait a few weeks before we begin the leash training).

The week started with a concerted effort to work with Lara, during structured time slots, three times a day, for ten minutes per session on shaping [...]
Watch Lara on video and see how she is progressing. The rehabilitation of a fearful and Ferrel dog can take months
I had to give a quick update on Lara this evening, I am so excited. I made the decision to let her out into the garden with no leash attached to her collar. I have gradually reduced it down to a three feet length so this was not as drastic as it sounds. I did [...]
