When I finally got serious about not having my arm come out of my socket, I knew I had my work cut out for me. I started in December 2010 with my first post of my decision and our first practice. Pain has a way of being a great motivator and was the only thing that kept me from not going back to the old ways. While I used the same basic techniques I'd used in the past, this time no matter what I was as consistent as possible. My biggest falter besides my habit of giving up and thinking I couldn't do it. Sometimes the walks were disasters, some were great successes, but the one thing they had was consistency and determination. It is the longest time I ever put in for leash training my dogs and Chance made it seem like piece of cake.
Chance and I would also like to send out a heartfelt thanks to everyone who has encouraged us and stuck by our story along the way. Your support has meant a great deal to us and we couldn't have done it without you.
Thank you for helping my Mommy!
Cause there was no way she'd make it this far on her own!!
