Bringing Light to Shadow A Dog Trainer's Diary
By Pamela Dennison
Can this dog be saved? A fearful, human-aggressive dog. A trainer who wouldn't give up. Positive, no-force training methods. Will this be enough to save Shadow from death row? The gods that protect fools, optimists, and little children must have known what they were doing when they brought together THIS dog and THIS owner. Shadow was a handsome, fearful, aggressive, one-year-old, second-hand Border Collie. He lashed out at people without warning and avoided human touch. Pam Dennison was a professional dog trainer with 12 years experience and a half dozen successful dog adoptions behind her when she met Shadow. When Pam found Shadow at a Border Collie rescue site on the Internet she was just looking to round out her canine family. Like a date she decided to meet Shadow "just to see" and, because she couldn't think of any reason not to take him home, he became hers. He also became her problem! Follow their 18-month journey from the early, dark days of fear and frustration to the daylight of confidence and trust. Learn how difficult it is, even for a professional dog trainer, to handle a dog with a past-and a temper too. Did she regret her decision to adopt Shadow? Yes. Sometimes. Did she make mistakes along the way? Of course. Did she resort to punishment? Never once.
