Meet Bowser the Mini Schnauzer

To showcase the power of positive reinforcement training, here is the heartwarming success story of Bowser, a mini schnauzer with anxiety and reactivity issues around other dogs. 

Bowser’s pet parent had two primary goals: integrating Bowser with the family’s westie and minimizing leash reactivity. Through dedicated training sessions with Toronto Humane Society’s trainer Beverley McKee, CDBC, CPDT-KA, they achieved remarkable results. Bowser’s pet parents expressed their gratitude and shared, “We’ve continued to experience success with Bowser, both for reactivity on walks and comfort around our family westie.”

The key to Bowser’s transformation was the utilization of positive reinforcement training. His pet parent emphasized, “Among all the conflicting dog training information out there, it’s great to see clear evidence that a positive reinforcement methodology can be effective for behavior modification and that it was the right one for our pup.” 

The success story doesn’t end there. Bowser’s pet parent recognized the significance of having a reliable training blueprint for continued progress and future challenges. “He’s far from bomb-proof, but we’re confident we’ll see more and more improvement as he matures, and we stay the course with appropriate management and handling/training. Thank you!” 

This heartening testimonial exemplifies the positive impact that training at Toronto Humane Society can have on your four-legged family member.
