Hi! My Name Is BRUNO

I'm Available

Bruno is about 1-1/2 years old and came as an owner surrender. They got him as a puppy. He joined the family with a female Boxer at home that was like his mom. She died, he got sent to a 2 week board and train which gave him solid obedience but also a little PTSD from training methods.
Bruno can be the sweetest little guy. But he is unsure and when out in the world his insecurity can become fear reactivity.

We have been working with Bruno and he has come a long way. He can now walk next to some dogs. He knows better self control. He has been able to progress due to our controlled environment and solid routine. Bruno can get overwhelmed with too much too soon. Excitement is not his friend causing him to lose control. At BRLA he walks the same familiar walk and when he becomes familiar with things, he become confident and comfortable with those things.

When Bruno goes home it has to be to a home that fully understands he needs a slow step by step acclimation to his new life. You cannot rush his process to feel safe and trust you. 

He is housebroken and crate trained. Strong, calm confident leaders are a must for this well trained boy that needs emotional stability. A little time invested doing the right things will reveal a sweet devoted boy. But no shortcuts, he will succeed when provided calm first days followed by routine first weeks and months of stability for a lifetime family member
