Rules that will be tough to live by
So, we'd wondered why we weren't allowed to share the name of the dog and we found out. Here is what we were told, except I took out proper names and substituted pronouns.---- The bonding process takes about six months to complete. We prefer that people not know the dog's name so that they won't call the dog, command the dog, or otherwise talk to the dog while it is learning to focus only on its owner. This is very important for student and the dog's safety. You can tell anyone privately as long as they understand the rules. No one, not even the parents,are allowed to pet the dog during this period. Only the Student. This is tough, but necessary. Poor Acer, he loves the feel of the Bernese Fur. It's going to be toughest for him.
