House-broken and knew how to sit (sometimes) but that was really it. Anyone who knows or has owned a Lab understands that an undisciplined 1.5 year old Labrador retriever can be a little crazy... Okay, completely nuts!
He was horrible on leash, his recall was terrible, he tore through indoors like a bull in a china shop, he shredded, chewed, destroyed anything he could get his pearly white teeth on! I met Cassie the day I picked him up. I had a leash wrapped around my hand, wrist and arm a dozen times and I could barely control him. I asked if she trained and we started classes the next week! It didn't take long to get some of the craziness handled and quickly he turned into one the best decisions I've ever made.
Cassie knew exactly how to focus his energy and grab his attention. She taught me as much as she taught Gus. I've grown up with dogs my whole life. I know quite a bit about them but I didn't know how to handle one that was full grown, quite strong and quite determined. She taught me how to handle all of that. My Lab is my best friend and one of my biggest accomplishments. I'd be lost without him. I'd be lost without Cassie-Leigh Stock!
