Thanks for your feedback. We'd just like to reassure you that as New Zealand's animal welfare charity we would NEVER do anything to the dogs which was cruel or stressful for them. Dogs are very intelligent and love to learn. The training has been like one big game to them.... they have absolutely loved it and they haven't been forced to do anything.... if the dogs do what they're asked to by their trainer then they receive lots of praise, a big pat or a hug or a food treat. There is no punishment if they don't do it. They do it for reward and because of the bond they have with their trainer. Dogs this smart need something to do, dogs are trained to work all over the world, from customs dogs to sheep dogs. Dogs this intelligent are not born to sit at home doing nothing (that's when people have problems with dogs in their house because they get bored), they actually welcome something to do. These 3 dogs have also come from very difficult backgrounds and were poorly - over the last 8 weeks in addition to being taught to drive, they have received one-on-one behavioral training from some of New Zealand's best animal trainers. They are now well behaved dogs who will make a great addition to someone's family. Trust us, we would never have agreed to participate in this project if it wasn't good for the dogs.
