When I adopted Maya, she had been labeled as ‘untrainable’ by her 3 previous homes, and was ready to be put down because of it.
You may know my sweet and sassy Maya…or you may know of her story.
She is quite a gal, with a jaded history. 😉
She was kicked out of 3 homes, and stood on death’s door because of her impossible behavior. She was labeled ‘untrainable’, and I was her last chance.
She chased anything that moved including kids, bikes, cows, horses…anything and everything! There was not a fence or gate that could stop her.
That was before she was 6 months old. Yep. She is quite a character.
We got off to a very rough start … and I began to question my sanity for taking her in. So, I did the one thing I was sure would be our path to partnership:
I spent our first 6 months working with her, creating partnership, developing self control and life skills … you know … The Foundation Formula stuff.
THEN, and only then, I started her sheepdog training. It was so worth the wait.
I took a chance on her, and I’m so glad I did.
She went from other’s Trash to my Treasure … and it turned out that she was a world-class sheep herding trial champion! Who knew?
I was religious about following my ONE RULE…and it payed off!
