We have taken both of our separately rescued German Shepherds here and it has changed our lives! One had severe separation anxiety and no longer tears the house up or howls for hours on end while we are gone. The other, a 100lb puppy with way too much energy, into everything, jumping, ignoring every command, etc. now lounges around the house and properly greets people when they come over.
When we go on walks I am confident and can trust them to be off leash. They sit when we stop without a command and immediately start up again when we continue walking – right by our side. They can be in a stay and we walk away from them, even go out of sight, and will not move until we call them.
People stop us all the time to give compliments on our well behaved dogs and we owe it all to this class!
Sarah has always been available when we had any questions even when we weren’t in class and we have gone back multiple times for “refresher” courses.
I was pregnant with our first baby when we got the puppy and they both are so sweet and love children. It helped them with the transition and also allowed us to calm them when they got over protective of the baby.
I can’t say enough good things about this course! I recommend it to ANYONE with a dog. Even well behaved dogs will benefit from this class. It is so freeing to be able to trust your dog no matter where you are or who/what comes into contact with us.
