Through private dog training sessions with Michael Burkey, a professional dog trainer and owner of Michigan Dog Trainer; Nancy learned how to train Georgia to be calmer around dogs using desensitization and habituation via food rewards and to respond to obedience commands via a remote collar training system. The remote collar (some incorrectly refer to it as a shock collar) uses low level stimulation to interrupt a dog's inappropriate behavior and to communicate to the dog what is the desired behavior.
Once Georgia learned to relax, she started to show a willingness to play with other dogs. So she was introduced to Starbuck, a friendly German Shepherd. At first she was a little nervous but quickly learned to relax and display behaviors meant to elicit play with another dog. Georgia and Starbuck had several successful online play sessions.
Then when Nancy went on a weekend trip, Georgia stayed with Michael and his dogs via the Home Away from Home program (HAH), a personalized home boarding program.
