I WANT her to go to a home thats right for her. She's not right for us. But my parents refuse to believe it, and would just rather blame all of this on me. Theyre right - I shouldnt have chosen the first dog I saw. But how was I supposed to know that she would turn out like this? I DIDNT know. I love dogs - so much... but Dora isnt right for us.
I WANT to have a dog; maybe one after this whole Dora fiasco is sorted. But they say if we give Dora away that will never happen. A second chance would be great - but its what they're denying me.
I just wanna stand up and shout that it isnt fair, that I love dogs and that I want a second chance... if I wasnt gonna be shot down.
And please guys, don't think that I'm being irresponsible, wanting another dog if we DO give Dora away - I can't help it. I love dogs, but the one I have just isnt right for me.
Masha, have a read of my previous post, would you be able to set yourself a timetable (and stick to it) so you have allocated time with Dora to work with her, in the meantime until Greys can get to you?
Masha, I'd be willing to come with Greys to help you with Dora. We could go together.
If you are from the Sutherland Shire then you may know of Hanrob Kennels. I worked for Steve Austin, but not at Hanrob, at his current kennels. I worked with the in-house training dogs etc.
I'm not a kid and maybe together with Greys we can help you with Dora. Maybe we can help your parents understand that removing her from situations that cause stress and aggression will be beneficial. You were correct in putting Dora out. Your parents were irresponsible in letting her back in. So you do know what to do with a dog with Dora's temperament, now they need to know.
I don't think starting over again with a different dog is the answer because you don't have the support of your family at the moment.
Do you have a clicker or would you rather use your voice?
Masha, if you give Dora away and get another dog, you arent solving the problem IFYKWIM. You'll just be bringing another dog into the same situation - Your family of which refuses to listen to you when your doing whats right.
Having a dog is hard. Especially when your in school, with homework & assignments continuously around the clock.
I have learnt that since having Mollie - if you dont have the family support, the people of which your dog stands by and loves, it is not best for the dog. I now DO have support from my brother and I can see the difference it has made in Mollies life.
Just my 2cents! <3

MAC that is a fantastic idea! You're a trainer, I'm not, which means that we can try to approach things from a few angles - training, rehoming etc.
Watch out Mr & Mrs Masha, the A-team are about to visit!
