Its Danny Daniel, Megan Daniel’ father that bought Mia (now Stella) from you back in February.Megan has been busy with school so wasn’t sure if she has updated you much.
Stella and her have bonded incredibly well and she is coming along nicely.We have Megan and Stella teamed up with an excellent service dog trainer here in Dallas.
The trainer is really well qualified and teaching Megan and Stella task commands along with all the basic obedience stuff.
Stella has already received her CGC and now working on her public access. The trainer stated this is typically done at 18 months but with Stella she will likely test out at 12-14 months.
I wanted to pass along the comments from the trainer who has worked with many dogs over the years. She is constantly amazed at Stella and the work that was put into her before Megan every got her. She said she is a very rare dog with exceptional focus and intelligence. Basically your efforts from birth to when we got her have made a significant difference in her ability to be a service dog. The trainer has also asked for your information for future reference as she is so impressed with you.
Anyway, the two are doing really well and she fits the family like a glove. Megan is leaving Friday (with Stella of course) out to Texas Tech in Lubbock where they will continue her training. I wanted to thank you for the work you put into these dogs. It was a lot of money for us and on the surface was hard to understand how a dog could cost so much.. Now we understand and see the incredible difference.
Anyway, here are some pics to show you your sweet puppy and how she is turning into an amazing young lady…well both of them are. Ha
All the best
Training Canines has created a miracle for our son. Our son was recently diagnosed with PTSD from a teacher abusing him when he was 2-3 yrs old. I was about to give up after contacting hundreds of dog trainers from California to South Carolina. No one was able to help us train a service dog for someone so young (he was 5 at the time) or it would take years to train a dog. When I contacted Kim, I was expecting the same. She informed me right away that she would love to help but it would depend on if our son, Cody connected with any of the puppies she had. My husband took him to meet the puppies and he connected with Laney. Kim worked with my husband and son to teach them how to help continue Laney’s training after we brought her home. The training Laney had when we got her was extensive. It was amazing how well trained she was considering she was only 16 weeks old. Our son now sleeps thru the night in his own bed with Laney. Laney knows when he is upset and immediately goes to him to calm him. She can sense before we know when his anxiety is escalating. Today, we celebrate the completion of Cody’s therapy due to Laney. I would recommend Training Canines to anyone. Kim was so wonderful to work with.
