The French Bulldog That’s All About “Me”

Name: Trudy W

Dog’s Name: Sophie

City: Temple

Zip: 76502

Breed: French Bulldog

Likes: To play ball

Favorite Toy: Ball

Favorite Treat: Blue Wilderness Organic Cookies

Favorite Walk: Neighborhood

Arrival Story: Sophie came to us on 4/8/13 from Iowa. She got here at 11:30 p.m. and we were all tired. She got along with our frenchies, Jake and Tator. The minute she woke up, she wanted to play and has been that way ever since.

Bio: My name is Sophie and I love my home and my two brothers. I love to play with toys, but mom and dad wear out too soon. I love to go on walks and I love to take my brother’s toys from them. I can play with two toys at once! Mommy says I’m a character (whatever that is). It’s all about ME and life would be better for me if they would realize that! I will keep working on it!

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

What was your initial reason for calling Sit Means Sit Dog Training?

“When we adopted Callie, she was very high energy and at times uncontrollable. We noticed she was tearing up the yard and ripping all our outdoor couch cushions. We wanted to be able to leave her in the yard while we were gone during the day, but after she chewed off our window sill that wasn’t looking like an option. Sit Means Sit was Callie’s last option.”

Please describe your experience and how your dog is doing now.

“This experience has been transformational for Callie. She is still the same fun, loving dog we hoped for but now we are actually able to enjoy having her in the house, and we are able to leave her in the yard during the day. She’s learned so much and in such a short time. The group classes have helped her calm down and still be obedient even with the distractions of other dogs. We are so proud of our well behaved pup!”

What was your initial reason for calling Sit Means Sit Dog Training?

“We adopted a large, energetic dog and Dr. Gosney suggested taking him to Sit Means Sit.”

Please describe your experience and how your dog is doing now.

“He is much more manageable and more fun to be around. We were very pleased with the training and comfortable to leave him for a week with a caring person and not in a cage in a kennel!”
