Happy Clients Testimonials

Faris the Puggle!

Faris the Puggle!Faris is an adorable mix between Pug and Beagle, so his owners call him a Puggle!
 
This inquisitive, headstrong little guy has a very affectionate but stubborn personality. His owners really wanted him to be reliable off leash so they would be sure he'd come when called. They also wanted him to stay off the furniture. And most importantly of all, they wanted him to stop nipping at their young son when dog and boy ran around together.
 
The whole family was pleased when Faris came home only two weeks later with the same bubbly personality, but now completely under control. He does not climb on the furniture, no longer bolts through open doors, doesn't nip, and comes when called off leash.
 
He does lots more cool stuff, but those are the things the family most wanted.

Cleo

CleoDear Marc,
 
Just wanted to drop you a note that we are very pleased with the way Cleo is behaving now.  Occasionally she tests us, especially when it comes to food, but she is understanding her new routine and follows me everywhere!  The whole family is enjoying being with her. Everyone gives her walks and takes her with them when going out.  She no longer has to be crated because we can't tolerate her behavior in a particular situation - she just chooses to go to her crate when we aren't around.  It truly has improved her quality of life and ours with her.
 
Thank you!

 

Rex and Buster

Tux and BusterTux (black) and Buster (buff) are Cocker Spaniels with two totally different attitudes on life. Tux is a timid people lover, while Buster is a confident, more reserved dog. Yet, when together on leash, both were habitually leash aggressive toward children, strollers and bikes. Plus they both used to try and eat off the counters and table, and got up on the good couch and chairs. Buster might growl when told to get down. Neither dog was reliable about coming when called off leash.

The family lives only a few doors from a church and school so the leash aggression became quite a problem. It was a chore to walk the dogs when people were around. Ten days later, we returned two happy little dogs and immediately walked them through a crowd of children, strollers and bikes. Their owner was thrilled when neither dog became aggressive at all. Released off leash, both dogs walked the churchyard, staying with us the whole time, and happily coming to their owner when called.

Then we brought the dogs inside and showed the client that her counters, table and good furniture were now understood by the dogs to be off limits. Finally, we showed the dogs that the other couch was ok to sit on “by invitation only.” We left the family content that instead of constantly conflicting with their dogs, they could now simply enjoy them.

Roxy

RoxyRoxy is a lovely Golden Retriever who understood everything that her owner, a restaurant chain owner, wanted her to do. She also understood she could ignore him whenever she chose....despite having been trained for weeks by a different training school.
 
Roxy came to us with one particularly bad habit. She had begun to bark, growl, jump and bite at her owner whenever she wanted attention. The biting was escalating to the point where she was leaving bruises.
 
Ten days later Roxy went home a changed--and happier--dog who understands how to ask for attention politely. She pays attention to her owner when he needs her. And he can now take her out off leash, knowing she will come when he calls her.
 
Roxy's owner says the difference "is just amazing."
