Right. I took on Inara as a project, as I'm guessing many trainers have done. But since her, I've chosen relatively easy dogs...without big issues. I wanted a project at the time of her adoption, but not anymore. Even so, I don't have kids, and I knew what I was getting into with her.
But this is why I'm always so fast to push euthanasia with iffy rescues. I don't want the adoption to end up like this.
but you knew you could make her better, too. You didn't make her worse. I think it is more acceptable to take on a dog like that if you KNOW you can make a positive impact. I'm not saying there isn't a place for problem dogs, but only with the right, dedicated people. Not some idiot who tried to fix an f-ed up fear response with corrections. fak. some people's kids.
