Fast As Lightning

Rosie is doing so well at the Second Chance Greyhounds Academy of Higher Learning. She is such a smart and sweet girl. Everyone loves her. She’s hard to resist.

Rosie’s trainers worked on stair training for the second time, and of course, she did perfect like she does on everything else. Rosie can get excited at times, but calms down very quickly. She’s so funny. Rosie is also so sweet and loving that she brightens up your day with just one look into her big, brown eyes.

Rosie loves to run and is definitely the fastest greyhound there. The name Rapid Rosie fits her well. She knows her command “here” very well. As soon as her trainer says “here”, she’s by his side in a flash.

Rosie can’t wait to get to her forever home. She’s ready to give her forever family all the love in the world.

Rad Rosie

Welcome to week 4 with Rosie! Well, this has been an eventful week for both her and her trainer. She worked on stair training - it’s only about 6 steps to start with, but she did awesome! She went step by step with her trainer without jumping ahead or falling behind. You go girl!!

They also played with toys and Rosie does get a bit excited, but telling her to give calms her right down. She’ll let go quickly and without a fuss. This is a great command to have if your hound has something in their mouth that they shouldn’t!

Rosie also had another test, and just like the last time she did a wonderful job. She is just so loving and so excited to learn. Rosie continues to bring joy everywhere she goes and with everything she does!

Loving, Laid back Lady

Well, time is flying by at Second Chance Greyhounds Academy for higher learning and Rosie is taking it one day at a time. She has already learned all her basic commands and did great on her testing this week. She scored all 10”s! What a smart girl.

Rosie is also sweet, loving and very laid back. Her trainer said she is the most laid back dog ever. You can’t go wrong with this pup. Your heart is going to skip a beat when you and Rosie first meet! It will be love at first sight.

Happy-go-lucky Gal

Rosie has been doing wonderful this past week. She is consistently improving with her training and she is currently working on stay and down. It seems that stay is going well, but she’s having a tougher time with down. But she is working hard, and it’s still very early in the session.

She is the easiest dog to take to use the potty – absolutely no fuss. They hit the grass and she handles her business. Since Rosie has been at Jenkins, it’s been pretty clear that she loves food. One day this week she got peanut butter for the first time and it was like she had never had food before in her life! It was so funny to watch.

Rosie is a happy and healthy little gal, be sure to check back next week for more updates on this sweetie pie!

Look at me!

Day one has been super exciting with Rosie!  She took getting a bath, de-ticked and her ears cleaned like a champ!  She’s now been in the prison training program for 4 days, and  she’s adjusting very well to her new temporary residence.  Her inmate trainer has started working on the “bed” command with her.  When she’s in her kennel she’ll stand up for a bit and when she starts to lay down he says “bed” so that her natural action is tagged as a command.  She’s already putting it together and responding!  

Rosie got to run in the big yard today!  Her inmate trainer says that she’s super fast and fun to watch.  She loves kibble or treats and seems to be a happy playful girl. Other commands and toys coming soon!
