Let's just say sister kept her promise and was determined to get her little butt home because 6 days earlier than expected, our sweet girl graduated from Kickapoo Ranch Pet Resort!
I don't know what it's like to have a child walk across a graduation stage but I'd say the feeling is pretty darn close to that. Proud is an understatement.
We are so so happy to not only have our baby girl back, but after 15 days of rigorous one-on-one training for Oakley and 2 days of training for us, we are finally able to enjoy her all the time. No more jumping, no more dragging us down the street when we take her for a walk, no more crazy harness contraption around her shoulders, no more leash at all, as a matter of fact and I just can't tell you how much stress has been taken off our shoulders. I know I sound incredibly crazy for saying that so judge away, but dealing with such a strong, powerful dog like Oakley was really starting to stress Beau and I out! It feels good to be in complete control of an 80 pound ball of sass.
Oakie Bear, I know you can't read (yet!) but we are so so so happy to have you home and I think it's safe to say you're really happy to be home, too. :) Thank you for making me not have to go 6 more days without you!
I've gotten a lot of emails lately asking what camp we sent Oakley to so for those interested, we sent her to Kickapoo Ranch Pet Resort in Waller, Texas (right outside of Houston). I would highly...HIGHLY...recommend Mike and his team if you're in need of a final solution for training your dog. The facilities are amazing (like, I want to move there) and the grounds are SO clean. (I never saw a single pile of poop anywhere, if that explains anything.) From puppies, to rescue babies and even older dogs, these people know what the heck they're doing and I am so incredibly appreciative of them! Honestly, this has been the best time and money I've ever spent. Ever. But if you still have questions, feel free to shoot 'em my way!
