Within 5 days of losing Rex (another AWS dog) we adopted Jackson. He was nowhere near even basically trained on adoption day and he was a lot of work. But we expected that! He is now a well trained, loving, and obedient companion. It’s all about obedience work and obedience work is all about doing the hard work every single day. AKC is our chosen program: 3 P’s!: patience, practice, PRAISE! It works. Jack is our 3rd. canine adoptee for AWS!
