Steve Moore rescued a three-year-old Golden Retriever that nobody wanted from a local shelter and did something truly impressive: he trained the pup, now named Jackson, to sit and wait patiently for him outside a store while he shops!
Steve is not a professional dog trainer, but he does have a very effective training method. His trick is to do the training in a high-traffic area so that the dog can get accustomed to ignoring distractions, while he hides just out of sight and keeps watch. He never puts Jackson in a situation where there's a potential for him to run into the road.
The dog waits patiently outside the store with a sign around his neck, and garners plenty of attention! "Everybody wants to take him home," says Steve. "I just find that amazing because four weeks ago, nobody wanted him."
