I have just received this from a lady who attended the training workshop I held a couple of weeks ago. She had approached me afterwards and was desperate for help with one of her dogs who was displaying aggression to her other dog and to other dogs that she encountered when out walking. Jazz had become a liability, a constant source of worry and unpleasant to be with. It had reached the point that she was no longer able to enjoy living with her dogs. I spoke at length to her and then sent her a comprehensive list of exercises to help realign Jazz’s behaviour, to re-establish the house hierarchy and to reintroduce calm. Here’s the result:
“No words can explain how grateful we are for your advice. I have read books etc but hearing it from you has made it so much easier to understand. Both Jazz and Tilly are totally calm already when we come into the house – it’s a pleasure coming in now. I feel as if a weight has been lifted from all our shoulders!
I can’t thank you enough.”
This is what makes what I do all worth while. I’ve never done the training for the money. In fact, the help I gave this lady (and most others) was totally free of charge. For me, it’s all about seeing dogs and owners lead more balanced, happier lives together. Result!
