Meet K9 Counselor Reload!! Our rapid-fire and socially-stable, “rufferee”! Reload’s specialty is assisting in behavior therapy training sessions. He helps under-socialized, fearful, or aggressive dogs learn appropriate social skills towards dogs and humans. From proper socialization techniques to the most important “No bite!” inhibition behaviors, Reload does it all! He is a master at reminding and teaching the “rules” of play that dogs must follow in order to keep their play and social behaviors balanced, fun, and safe!
Reload is an energetic Blue Heeler found at a shelter in Massachusetts. Like Money, he was about to be euthanized for his aggressive behavior toward animals and humans. Since his adoption, we have retrained him and have given him several jobs here at Doggie Shrink. Reload has become an expert on-and-off-leash obedience dog. He is also a canine socialization and rehabilitation powerhouse for all types of issues and a fantastic role model for teaching puppies and older dogs balanced behavior. In his spare time, he loves to compete in agility, flyball, and tug-o-war!
