Due to some health problems and school I have not been able to get to the shelter as often as I like but I can update boomers training a little.
I cannot stress how important it is for people to realize that these dogs do not go home to a stable environment every night. They stay in small kennels most of the day with around 30 differnet dogs barking, this makes it difficult for them to retaine what they learn. That being said, Boomer is doing excellent in retaining his basic commands. He is learning to greet people on all four feet, and walk nicely on the leash. He still needs some work but moving into a calm, stable, and constant environment will make this dog amazing. He should be a breeze to train anyway you want him. If you are interested in Boomer, please come on down to the Huron Humane Society or give them a shout at their website.
