Hi- I need advice for my new foster dog. From my understanding he came from an abusive home. He is under 2, I believe ,and has never been inside a home/building. One of my main concerns is his fear of humans. If you have any tips or any advise that could help I'd appreciate it.

1. This is about 15 mins into his first session. I sit down on his level use a small room and only a small space in that room. I teach "follow" first so he will learn to follow my hand. This helps me postion him where I need him for later training. Lots of treats and praise.
3. Stay is added in, I'm using the whole room and only giving treats after he has accomplished several commands in a row.
4. This is not the first walk session, he has had many. But here he has mastered stopping when I stop with no verbal or visual commands.

Do you own a black dog or know someone who does? You see them all the time at the dog park on the street, and in the parks. But did you know under that shinny black coat is a very sad secret? A secret that SNIP (Spay and Neuter Idaho Pets) is trying to let out of the bag. Black dogs, and mostly black dogs, are often the last to be chosen, or worse yet NEVER chosen for adoption in shelters and rescues.
