Client Case Scenario – Brief History

  • Brad is a middle aged man who lives with his two sons in a small trailer. Eric is 13 years old, and Joey is 15 years old

  • Brad worked as an electrician before becoming disabled

The Current Situation

  • The dog keeps running away, getting injured, and running up vet bills
  • The dog is not trained and has knocked Brad over on a number of occasions

  • They walk the dog every evening. They do not walk the dog in the morning, because they are having trouble waking up to walk the dog before school
  • Brad cares for the dog when Eric and Joey are in school

Brad’s Dilemma

  • He is worried that Eric and Joey will become depressed if he gets rid of the dog
  • He is also angry that the dog has destroyed his home
