Where to start ♡ ... Bessie you have honestly saved Grayson's life. About a month ago I phoned Bessie in tears ... my beloved baby boy was experiencing such anxiety and this had turned into fear aggression on such a bad level that euthanasia was a huge possibility.For those that don't know Grayson ... he is a 10 month old, 50kg, American Bulldog from pristine breeding bloodlines. There was no obvious reason for why he was so fearful and anxious of and for the unknown. SIMPLY SAYING IT IS THE BREED AND GIVING UP IS NEVER EVER EVER AN OPTION AND SUCH AN IGNORANT WAY OF THINKING. FACT: MORE LABS/ GOLDAN RETRIEVERS ARE PUT DOWN FOR AGGRESSION THAN PITBULLS.
Of course Bessie was up for the challenge ... a month later and only a couple of private and group lessons ... and my boy is turning into a super star... he is happier... more obedient... more confident and less fearful. Bessie even thinks he could be in up and coming demos♡ Connsidering he was malled in the middle of all this by another dog on one of our daily walks ... him playing with Page (Bessie's GSD) only a week after the attack brought tears to my eyes... he also plays with my younger brother ( age 10), something which was impossible and dangerous before. These are honestly only a couple of things that have improved... the list is endless.
We will continue with training next year when the school re-opens and I can't wait to see my superstar shine. The smile on his face ... and shine in his eyes is proof of his improved mental health ♡
My only regret with this amazing experience that I have had ... is that we didn't take a before and after video for you all to see the magic♡ Starplex Kennels: Breeders of the American Bull Dog Bessie King
