The Animal Welfare Society is fortunate to have volunteers who take adoptable dogs through the obedience classes. They also spend quality time, playing with, walking, and running the dogs. Here’s what some volunteers had to say about Wally:
“Wally greeted me with his tail and body in full wag, a very enthusiastic boy! That enthusiasm and his youthful energy made him a fun boy to take for a walk and to work with in Shelter Dog Obedience class. Wally loves treats! He showed me that he already knows several basic commands, like sit, give paw, watch me, down, and come. Because he can be easily distracted, we used a gentle lead, which helped him focus during class. He also seemed to enjoy the short agility training session. Wally tried real hard to do everything just right – that is, when he wasn’t being distracted! He still has a way to go and will benefit greatly from continued obedience sessions to help him build confidence. Wally loves human contact and has a whole lot of love to give to his person(s)!” Susan
