Update on Rainey: Rainey left for her trial adoption about a month ago. We're happy to say that we received a very good report over the weekend. Her name is now Reno and we're told she is doing great. She's living with her new dad on about 5 acres in Medina. She loves following him around while he works on the property. She's getting plenty of mental exercise practicing her commands and she gets out twice a day to run & play to get that energy out of her. Reno even discovered that she like to swim in the pond! Her dad tells us that they have really bonded. Reno was definitely one of my favorite dogs that we have fostered for training. I'm very happy for her and thankful that she was adopted by someone willing to give her the physical and mental exercise she needs.

Here are some pictures of adoptable Kohana (Koko to us) practicing her place command. She's really a sweet girl. She was very fearful when she first arrived but she's doing much better. She's still leery of strangers if not approached properly but she's getting more confident all the time. She still needs to gain some more weight but at least she's gained enough that her ribs aren't sticking out as much as when she first arrived. She loves to run around in the fenced in areas and enjoys her walks. She's done well with our dogs. You can get adoption information at

Our stay & train Rainey was quite the escape artist. We found she could easily climb over our 5 ft. fences when she wanted to. So we had coyote rollers installed on top of the fence in one of our pens so she could be left outside alone. When the dog reaches the top and tries to pull their body over with their paws the bar rolls and they fall back down. Of course Rainey left for her trial adoption right after we had these installed so we never got to try them out. But we're ready for the next "fence climber". Of course they will not work if the dog is able to jump over the fence instead of climbing it.

There is no doubt that Americans love their dogs. But far too often we learn to live with unwanted behaviors from our dogs instead of addressing them. At times we may actually be encouraging and rewarding unwanted behaviors. So those cute little things our adorable puppy does now become a problem as they grow older and larger. This leads to frustration and tension for both us and our dogs. The much loved walk is cut short because there is another dog out. Our dog is closed in a room whenever a guest comes to the door. No food is safe even on the kitchen counter.

There is no need to live like this. Whether it's a new puppy or an older dog Columbia Dog Training can help. We teach you the methods and skills you need to have a more obedient dog leading to a better and more enjoyable relationship. Our training programs are tailored to address your needs. One on one, no group classes, so you get the most value for your time. Call us today to schedule an evaluation session.
