The Fouche Way:

Posted on: 7/8/2014 9:36:34 PM under General

Lin came to Brandon with her dog Coco who had been demonstrating aggression to people and other dogs. Lin was at her wit's end trying to get help for her dog. Lin is a very committed dog guardian who is willing to do what it takes; she hadn't been able to find the help she and Coco needed even after consulting with several trainers.

"Since adopting her she's been fearful and extremely dog aggressive; she's bitten me and my brother and her only packmate (my roommate's dog) trying to get to other dogs. She bites the leash, growls, whines, jumps, lunges, and looks over her shoulder over and over. We live in an apartment so we walk 3 times a day, and it's extremely difficult because she turns into a monster. I KNOW it's fear I don't know how to fix it. Hiring several trainers hasn't helped, and I'm at a dead end. I can't afford to send her off for weeks especially after investing so much in her training thus far which is proving useless. She's only happy/fearless indoors when me or my roommate is home. I am moving soon but can't with her behavior for the safety of others, so I've already pushed back for months and I'm scheduled to move out in December. I'm freaking out I don't know what to do! I can't give her up I won't be the same if I do, she is my world!" 

Watch what happened the very first day that Coco spent time with Brandon--what Lin refers to as "beyond a miracle."

Watch Lin's reaction after seeing what is possible with Coco. Lin explains the difference in Coco after spending several hours with Brandon. If you have ever felt that things were beyond repair with your dog, Lin's enthusiasm will give you hope!

Brandon often says "I've never met a dog who couldn't be helped. I've only met people who weren't willing to do what it took to help their dog." Lin is a great example of someone who never gave up and kept the faith. She knew there was a solution and kept searching. We'll look forward to hearing about Lin's progress with Coco as she embraces The Fouche Way.
