avatarGot a bouncy boxer? Enroll in training classes with Elise. Just do it, you won't be sorry. What started with a very building a bond that will last forever. Sometimes our pals just need a little help learning the ways of the human world impress even our biggest skeptics. I would have to say the best accomplishment for me was learning how to channel all that great boxer energy ~ using some basic commands learned in class and a little bit of patience (also learned in class!) With what we've learned in basic & advanced obedience, all it takes is a few minutes each day to maintain & build on the great foundation Elise helped us start.
