Two years ago when we brought Lancer the Lurcher home from the rescue centre near Peterborough we found we had a dog who had obviously had a hard life. He was underweight with scar marks on his face and body. Although affectionate with our immediate family he was aggressive to any strangers, particularly men. Taking him for walks was a nightmare as anything on four legs was something to be attacked.
We were recommended to try Dog Ease by our local veterinary nurse.
Two years later Lancer has completed his bronze silver and gold awards. These have taught him good manners towards people who come to the house and people we meet on the street. On holiday last year I was able to let my 12-year-old granddaughter walk him on a lead down the main street of Aldeburgh confident that he would be well-behaved with any dogs he met.
He now loves the agility course that we do together on Saturdays. Taking him for walks is a pleasure. Today he stood surrounded by three labradors, one non-descript terrier type and another Lurcher, happily wagging his tail exchanging sniffs and when told to, moving on easily.
To say that Adem understands dogs and they him is an understatement. Dogs instinctively understand what he wants them to do. It is us owners who sometimes take more training than the dogs.
