From bad dog to best friend, shelter dog Dakota’s story is a must for anyone with a problem dog. From pottying all over the house, chewing and destruction, Dakota was transformed into a dog who could be trusted with full run of the house all day.
She came to us as a problem dog, abandoned by owners who couldn’t handle her. When we first adopted Dakota she couldn’t be left alone for a single minute. One year later we took her on a road trip and she was a model citizen. Dakota now brings us laughter and joy instead of “Don’t Kill the Dog” sticky notes. Every technique we used, both the successes and the failures, we offer in the hopes of helping other dog owners.
