When we met Caleb, Huck was a rather wild and uncertain yellow Labrador about 2 ½ years old. He had some issues which were very difficult for me to deal with on my own. He went to Lucky Pawz dog day care and play group until he was expelled because he was aggressive toward new dogs introduced to the group. Fortunately I met Caleb shortly thereafter and Huck joined the Mobile Pack. The effect of this new environment was immediate and amazing: Huck had been aggressive out of fear, but with Caleb’s leadership he was able to join the pack and to love it. It was and continues to be the best thing that happened to him, and to me.
Caleb is wonderful with dogs. In addition to the great benefit to a dog of being able to be a member of a pack, which is a canine’s natural way of life, Caleb has been generous in the time he has spent working with Huck and me on issues that Huck has had when walking with me on a leash in our neighborhood. We have both improved greatly. Huck and I now enjoy walking together, and he no longer seeks to be the boss: he agrees that I am. I would never have learned how to be the pack leader (a small pack: Huck and me) without Caleb’s instruction and guidance.
In my opinion, this is the perfect environment for my dog and all others. Caleb and his pack have changed my dog and changed me. I am not a young woman, and without Caleb’s help I am not sure I could have handled Huck and been able to live a happy life with this young and energetic dog. Now I have confidence that we can live a long and happy life together.
