Axel - Family Protection Dog
Hi Charles, Kath & Gaynor,
We thought that we would write and let you know how Axel is getting on up here in Cumbria. Firstly, let us commend you on selecting the ideal dog for our family and lifestyle, Axel is full of energy when we are out & about and we have a lot of fun. However when he is in the house he just chills out on his bed and keeps an eye on everyone which is exactly what you need with a two-year old running around the place. We practice obedience with him every day and have also done some protection scenarios (with some help from Jim), he has certainly shown that he will stand his ground and protect us and our home should the need ever arise. As a family pet he is bonding with us more now and he is very tolerant of Jessie Honey (our 2-year old) hugging and kissing him, he even sits beside her and plays at tea-party games!
We were initially apprehensive about taking a protection trained dog into our family but we were put at ease by the friendly and professional approach & communication from you all at A1K9.
Axel was brought into our home to be a companion/protector for my family when I am away, but he is much more than that, he is a joy to have around, comes everywhere with us and we are all looking forward to going camping for our summer holidays this year.
Thanks very much to you all for everything & all the best for 2006.
Dave, Andrea & Jessie Honey.
