“Bear” becomes a Gentle Giant

During the fourth in home training session, LaNesha Matthews of Detroit, Michigan demonstrated the progress she and her dog had made in training. She states that prior to training, her dog “Bear” would constantly jump on her, pull on the leash making walking difficult, etc. Now look at them!  They are a happy team able to take joyful and stress free walks with each other.

After the training was complete, LaNesha sent me an email update of her dog’s progress: “I took Bear for a walk today around the neighborhood and when he wanted to get to a tree he pulled a little but it was wonderful! It was nice and peaceful, he paid attention. Then back at home, normally for me to have him with me and the kids; I have to clean up everything because he grabs everything with his mouth.  So I used the collar with the drop it and leave it command and the results were almost instantaneous.

I am so glad I decided to go with you as my doggie’s trainer. Now he can be with us without me chasing him around trying to get the kids toys out of his mouth. Thank you again, he’s like a whole new dog.”
