We brought a very sweet pit/lab/border collie mix named Bessie to Ann at the beginning of the summer after she randomly picked out an unsuspecting man to bite on West St. downtown Annapolis. I was so very pleased to have been referred to her as I needed to be trained on how to best work with our dog.
The buzzer collar was recommended and while I was hesitant, I have found it is gentle and effective. I let Bessie off-leash today for the first time and was so pleased when Bessie not only came back to me, but also enjoyed her running around time in the grass while paying attention to me.
While there is the occasional man that bothers Bessie (as she is a rescue) I feel much more confident in our walks which makes it much more enjoyable for all of us, and safe for all men passing us!
We brought Bessie to Ann because we knew if Bessie bit another person she could be ordered to be put down. We brought her to save her own life and make our life with her enjoyable-mission accomplished!
