Sue and critters

My rescue dog Hunter had a serious problem chasing the cats. Hunter today is a different dog! He does not chase the cats, I often find them sleeping together or just playing. He is part of our family and such transformation from the dog I brought home that day. Terrie is a wonderful teacher and has a lot of patience training both the dogs and their owners.
