When brothers Thor and Freeman and their mother Emma first came to SKD they would not leave their crate. They spent days huddled inside refusing to come out. The poor things were so frightened. On the advice of our trainer we moved the family to the dog park. Finally, Thor and Freeman started to explore their new surroundings, eventually able to be in the same vicinity as with us. Emma still needs more time to feel comfortable around us. Although Thor is still very timid he is fine when no humans are around and loves to explore the dog park and be around the other dogs. He just learned to take treats from our hands. We are continuously working with help him warm up. He is 10 months old and weighs 20 kg.
