Easy there, Gorgie

I’m always smiling because I really like people. I’m always looking for a sign that someone’s coming near. When I see someone, I start barking to say “come here” and bang my paws against the fence! Therefore, when people do approach me, I can’t help smiling, I’m so happy! However, making a racket and jumping up on people is not polite, so it’s a bit of a disadvantage when ARK recommends me to potential owners. The nice people at ARK are trying to train me right now, by ignoring me and walking away when I jump, and giving me a treat when I am calm and sitting nicely in my doghouse. ARK is also training me to stop pulling on my leash when I take a walk.

During a walk, if Gorgie pulls the lead, the person walking him stops and freezes.

(Hey! Atomi is watching you. “Good luck, Gorgie-kun!”)

“Huh? Why aren’t you going forward?”

It’s easy to see that that’s what Gorgie’s thinking. When he stops and looks back like this, or when the lead slackens, he gets praise or a treat and the walk continues. He has to learn he can’t walk forward unless the lead is loose. Gorgie seems to understand that people will stop when he pulls the lead, but it may take time for him to fully understand that we’ll let him keep walking as long as he doesn’t pull.

I will try hard to be good because then someone can take me home. I will be so happy if I can have my own family to give me attention and love every day. If I’m good, I won’t have to be alone anymore.
(Gorgie, don’t worry...you’re a great dog already, we’ll rehome you for sure...)
