However, even I couldn't have imagined bringing a new puppy home just 8 days later…but that is exactly what happened.
When an opportunity came up to see a litter of Golden Retriever / Australian Shepherd pups I couldn’t pass it up. My daughter and I headed out to have a look and we brought our new bundle home that very day. Tilly was an immediate hit with the whole family and even though we could never replace or forget our sweet Gemma, Tilly helped us to move on.
Tilly seemed like a smart little girl but that’s not to say we didn’t have some issues with her. Puppy biting was a biggie because I was coming back from outings and heading for the first aid kit on a regular basis. I knew I had to get down to business with her so I started looking for a trainer.
While looking on-line one day I came across the Sit Happens website.They were local, they did basic obedience as well as agility and let's face it the name just makes you laugh.
They offered a free in-home consultation so I called and set up an appointment.
My whole family was blown away!
There was such a bond between the two. Cash never took his eyes off Jeff yet he was still so exuberant and having so much fun. It was just what I hoped to achieve with Tilly. I was apprehensive though, I didn't know if I had what it took to accomplish all of this and I wondered just how long it would take to get there.Then Jeff took Tilly and worked with her that very first day. It was astounding! In just a few minutes she was listening and so focused on him.
It was all done in such a calm and positive way. It really was amazing to watch.
Jeff assured us he could help with our issues and said Tilly was a good dog that just needed to know that we were the ones in charge, not her.
I no longer need the first aid kit, she is welcome at her "grandparents" condo and I never hesitate to take her somewhere new. All this after only a couple of months!
My family and I couldn't be happier with Jeff and everyone at Sit Happens.
We would highly recommend them to anyone looking to enjoy life with an amazing four-legged friend.
