Moana would give Jonathan and Vivian 10 stars if she could! She first met Jonathan for training lessons after she was adopted from the Pinole shelter. At the time, she was a skittish and undisciplined 6-year-old husky/lab mix who had lived in at least two different households. On the day she came home, she jumped out of the car and ran into a parking lot on San Pablo Ave while I was attempting to put her in the car. Three adults had to wrestle her back in the car, manage her at bathtime, and hold her down to apply Frontline. Less than a week later, she pulled my dad to the ground in a frenzy that involved killing a skunk. She took the 6-week package and spent Saturday afternoons learning the basics like how to sit and stay-- something her previous owners hadn't bothered to teach her. She is also better on the leash now. Doesn't pull as much, unless she sees a cat or squirrel. As the months have gone by, she has calmed down and is much better behaved. When she hears me say, "Hey!" in a certain tone, she knows to stop doing whatever she's doing. Come summer, this lucky gal got to go to the resort at Jonathan's house a whopping 3 times! She just came back from the last trip, and she gets so excited when she realizes where she is going. She gets plenty of attention, walks, and even mini obedience lessons while she is there and **she always returns better behaved** I don't think she misses me when she's there. Moana loves it and would be disappointed to know there aren't any more getaways planned for a while.
