Gentle Ben came home with me

After following me home, Ben bit me. Now, he no longer has to bite his humans.

At one time I thought that if dogs missed appropriate experiences early in their development, they couldn't learn later what they had missed.

But then some dogs taught me I was wrong. (Well, I had been right until I learned how to intervene more successfully in canine development gone astray.)

Through the great patience of two dogs in particular, I learned how to retrain or rehabilitate dogs who missed some critical pieces of their early learning. I took each of these dogs when they were a year old.
