Hi Jim and Mary,
Unfortunately, the class just started and is full. The next doesn't start for 8 weeks.
I would be willing to meet with you and evaluate him for a future class if you'd
like. I also do private training if you would like to start sooner.
What training has he already had? Is he neutered? How old was he when
you got him?

Thank you for the response Michelle. Unfortunately we cannot wait 8 weeks for another class.
I will not invest in private classes, cannot afford that. We will keep trying and hope for the best. If it does not workout we decided we may have to take him to Scottish Terrier Rescue.
I have had Beagles to Golden Retreivers, but never had a dog like this, who has no interest in learning.
Thank you again
I actually don't charge more for private work than you pay for classes, but that's
The best place for any dog is where he currently is, and many rescues won't take
a biting dog for placement. If you don't get training help, nothing is going to change
in less than 8 weeks.
If you don't want training help, I'd strongly suggest you do some research on
"Nothing In Life Is Free," it's a systematic approach to getting a lot of problematic
behaviors under control. You can implement it immediately and there are generally
some results within days.
So they can't afford private training (that they don't know the cost of), can't wait 8 weeks for another class, and want to just see if things magically get better on their own after a year - suddenly out of nowhere since they can't wait 8 more weeks.
