Today, I again went to the Portage County Dog Warden and enjoyed dog training. Ravenna is where the Dog Warden is located. My hearts go out to many dogs that are at this shelter. One of them is a Blue Lacey named Stormy.
In the kennel she is so stressed that she is barking and is showing much fear behavior. However, once she is out of the kennel her personality is much more relaxed.
I believe she could go to a great home with someone that doesn’t have any children. In the meantime, we are looking for a dog rescue that could foster her until she finds a new home.
Currently, the shelter environment is stressing her out. She barks at me every time l pass her kennel. However, outside of her kennel she wants to interact with me.
She even started barking at times to demand for treats. So cute! She has been previously worked with, I believe, because she knows “shake.” She also knows “sit,” well. We worked on target, watch and down. Down was a bit tricky for her, but she can learn it.
I was pleased to see her warming up to me and having a great time doing dog training. Ravenna or somewhere nearby has a rescue that can take her.
I have noticed that sudden movements can be a bit scary for her and I believe if someone worked on dog training with her, that she would become much more confident.
If she ends up in a rescue I am happy to help with dog training. Ravenna is definitely an area that I serve.
