I’m really starting to ❤️ Dog People Coaching
At an evening dog training class I’m assisting at, I was called in to assist a family with a young boy with a learning disability. I’m not sure what the diagnosis was, all i know is he had a long road of learning from being non-verbal, to having speech therapists (a story similar to my own). That night he was the dog trainer of the family, while he needed a little adjusting and prompting, he was doing exceptionally well. It warmed my heart to get a thanks from his family, and as he was leaving class he was very proud of himself, he wanted to show me that he trained his dog to sit.
That was the best thank you of all! To see the pride in himself.
Sometimes all it takes is a little patience, consistency and encouragement to help others along.
