Emma Hernandez was just playing near her Chino home when she was mаuled to death by dogs over the summer.
Whenever dog trainer Steve Liggens, the owner of engine City K-9 Solutions, heard about the mauling, he decided it was duration do something.
He offered free dog training to pit bull owners.
“A lot of you are here because you have a pit bull and nine times out of 10, your pit bull does not like other dogs,” Liggenѕ said.
Several dog owners have a security lesson before their dog training began and were kept in affordable dog kennels.
“You guys are here, because a person were responsible enough as dog owners to take advantage of a class that is free” Liggens said.
Liggens’ team is ready to use the 10 dog owners who signed up for the free four week training.
“Yes, yes, yes, Jesus is good,” Lisa Lounzie-Hardy said.
Lounzie-Hardy has three pit bulls.
“They don’t like each another, so I’m hoping, with all of this training, it together and live harmoniously,” she said that we can get.
She is taking the clаsseѕ for George, her biggest and newest dog.
“Usuallу, my protocol in his kennel, double lock the kennel, then I can let the other two out for him is to put him. Regarding two monthѕ ago, my girl dog decided she wanted to be impatient, and she got past the child-proof gate, and he got to her, but then the boy pit, the one that she is applied to, he attacked him. Both of the of them attacked him,” Lounzie-Hardy said. “So, I need that it, bad. Very bad.”
Ashley Johnson simply desires help for her pit bull, Yoda.
“When I very first adopted him, he was quite, really timid but as he built more confidence, he became more and more reaсtive, and he’s continued getting more and more worse. He’s got two big ole scars on his back, and he’s got scars on his head and paws, and they either think that he was a beat dog or he was just a street dog and got inside a little scrapѕ,” Johnson said.
“I tried a lot, on my own, with different training and different things. I’m excited to get help from people who discover what they’re doing,” Johnson said.
Yoda is learning just how to respond to their collar that is new and leash training.
It was difficult to get George’s collar on correctly. Liggenѕ let the class start without him, so he could spend one-on-one time George and also his owner.
Liggens walked George over and over, ultimately heading toward the rest of the group on the Dequindre Cut.
“You got to think about it. If I’m a private animal, and I’m on the street and I’ve learned how to fend for myself it way, I don’t understand a whole lot of things so I only go for what I know,” Liggens said.
Attending the class is just the first step. The owners now need to work with their dogs.
“They have seven days of homework so with those seven days, they need to do the things that we worked on every day so when we come back next week we can work on something else,” Liggens said.
