Our dog Remmy was attacked by two off-leash dogs in our neighborhood of Logan Square in March. It was vicious and unprovoked, and she barely survived. After months of surgery and healing, Remmy was able to enter the regular world again, but not without help.
While we had attended training in the past, we didn’t know quite what to do in this case. It was too soon for agility, and obedience – while always a good thing – didn’t seem necessary at that time. That’s when we found out about the Nose Work class with Roger. We enrolled, and saw a fantastic transformation in Remmy. She gained confidence, and started using her nose constantly. Perhaps most important she would come home happy and mentally exhausted – exactly what she needed after months of being cooped up with bandages on!
Many factors contributed to Remmy’s rehabilitation, and without a doubt the Nose Work class was one of them.
