Zack - Family Protection Dog
Dear Charles, Gaynor & the A1K9 Team
It’s been a busy 3 months since Zack was handed over to us and I thought I should let you know how he is doing.
Zack took no time to settle in, in fact he was pretty much one of the family from day one. He is great fun to have around, gets on well with other dogs and is very alert and inquisitive at all times. The children love taking him for walks and think it’s hilarious when he plunges into lakes and streams, he’s not ventured into the swimming pool yet but it’s only a matter of time!
He also loves accompanying me on runs and we do 8/9 miles, 3 or 4 times a week. He needs no lead, loves to meet other dogs and responds instantly to any commands. We run cross country through beautiful countryside, often off the beaten track. Ide runs with us too and having them both there gives me the confidence to go places I would usually feel were too remote for a girl running alone.
The whole family adore Zack, but I think it’s fair to say that he and I have a special relationship. He has assumed the role of my personal bodyguard, he shadows me everywhere and I mean literally everywhere! I hope I never need to find out, but I dread to think what he would do to anyone who attacked or behaved aggressively towards me.
Your dogs are fabulous and a credit to you all. I only wish we had a bigger house so we could have 3 or 4 more!
"She has been an absolute delight to have in our home, extremely intelligent, robust, loving and incredibly protective of the family"
