Spencer, a high energy Doberman came to Michael Burkey’s Michigan Dog Trainer board and train dog training program because it was impossible for his owner to walk him in public and while a very sweet boy; he was extremely difficult to live with in a home. Â He chased cars, lunged with over the top excitement toward strangers he met on walks, had no clue how to walk on a leash, and picked up every item on the ground (paper, cigarette butts, etc.) He even tried to pick up a piece of flat tape that was affixed to the ground.
He was a challenge and a joy to work with because of his excitement level. Â Spencer learned to walk on a loose leash, not to chase cars/bikers/joggers, not to jump on strangers, come when called, to leave it, to give and to walk with other dogs during group socializationÂ dog walks.
