It all happened when animal control received a frantic call one day.
“My son’s been mauled by a vicious dog on the loose!”
“He’s bleeding profusely and we’re rushing him to the hospital now.”
“It needs to be put down immediately.”
– Victim’s mother
Jake and his partner hurried over to the scene, having been assigned to capture it and put it down.
The dog was indeed very aggressive. It would snarl and growl whenever they came close. It even attacked Jake when he tried using the catch pole.
Hours went by and still no luck. Finally, they used a tranquilizer to calm it down and brought it to the vet for examination.
“She’s an old dog.”
“Nothing’s wrong with her mentally.”
“It’s just that she’s had a history of being heavily abused.”
“As you can see, her body is fully covered with deep wounds and cuts.”
“She’s suffered so much trauma in the past.”
“It’s no wonder she has such an aggressive behavior.”
– Dr. Webber
Deep down, he believed that behind the aggression lies a dog that’s just deprived of love and care.
Seeing hope in its eyes, Jake begged the officer not to euthanize the dog but to give him 3 months’ time to discipline it.
After much convincing, he reluctantly agreed.
Jake tried everything from training the dog on his own with treats to consulting an animal behaviorist. None of which worked!
The dog remained stubborn in its way, barking and lunging at strangers every chance it gets.
He even considered sending it to a training school but he simply couldn’t afford it. Day by day, he lost hope.
There, he noticed a dog that’s exceptionally well-behaved. Unlike other dogs, it wasn’t on a leash. While it roamed free, it still returned to its owner whenever she called.
Jake was dazzled by its obedience so he was compelled to ask the owner for her secret. That’s when she said:
“Like older people, senior dogs are set in their ways.”
“They’re past that crucial point in puppy hood that influences their lifelong behavior.”
“In their minds, they’ve already learned how to behave.”
“So re-training them will be harder but not impossible.”
“I used to have the same problem with this dog right here.”
“But with Furble™, he’s well-tamed now.”
Furble™ is an effective tool that makes training a whole lot easier especially for people who don’t have any experience training dogs before.
It emits a high frequency sound which is totally harmless to the dog. What this does is it grabs their attention and gets them to stop their bad behavior such as chewing things, barking or even digging the yard immediately.
Just point the device towards the dog and push the button. You can even attach a command to it like “Stop!” so you can say that and won’t even need to use Furble™ after a few times.
With the dog’s life in his hands, Jake was desperate to try anything. So he placed an order for the Furble™. To his surprise, it worked like a charm.
Jake pushed the button and yelled “No!” whenever it barked at strangers. After only a week of this, something crazy happened.
The dog didn’t simply bark at strangers anymore. It also stopped being aggressive towards other people.
Instead, the dog was calm, friendly and trusting. It even listened to commands and learned a few new tricks!
The officer was pleasantly surprised by its complete turnaround. No longer destined to be put down, the dog was eventually approved to be put up for adoption.
However, it already became an invaluable part of Jake’s life. Growing attached to it, he decided to adopt the dog himself.
“Rescue dogs deserve love just like any other.”
“I want to be the one to show this dog what it finally feels like to be loved.”
“And that there’s hope for shelter dogs to start anew.”
“That’s why I’ve decided to name her Hope, inspired by her life’s story.”
Hope is now loved by many especially kids and has become one of the friendliest dog in the neighborhood they both currently live in.
Hope is living proof that you CAN teach an old dog new tricks.
If you or anyone you know have a dog displaying bad behaviors, try Furble™. After all, you owe it to your dog to teach it how to behave.
