I am so sorry for your injuries and that you have to get a new dog.
I'm not going to try and sell you on any specific school. I'm sure you'll get plenty of those posts. I have had wonderful luck with my GDB dogs, especially my last two boys. I do want to say to you that I have had a small dog that pulled like a freight train. I now have a big boy whose pull is very gentle. My Bower boy before him was a very gentle large guy as well. It isn't necessarily size that determines pull. I think it is a rather large misconception that too many of us have. Little dogs are often very strong. Large dogs are strong, but often do not use that pull against us.
Kristeen & Mendle, who says the Acelet pulls much harder than he does.

>> Hello list. I have unfortunate news regarding Sophie girl. Within 2 days, she caused injuries to me. One involved food at the bottom of some stairs while in harness. The other involved her getting excited about seeing another dog during her park time. The force she used caused me to break a bone in my hand. Today Sophie is going back to Leader Dog and I most likely have to get a different dog. I'm trying to decide whether to stick with the same school since some of their training methods don't seem to work well. In the event I must select a different school, does anyone have suggestions? I'll give you some info on my travel needs so you have them to go by. I'm an 18 year old college student who walks a decent amount every day for classes. I prefer a smaller dog as it can fit more easily under desks and will not have as strong of a pull. Any feedback is appreciated.
