We're really happy with Shadow's progress. She's just done so well. I feel like she's so smart that once she figured out that we didn't want her to do something, she stopped it. We even took her on her first trip to a relative's home in LA (1-1/2 hour drive), and she did great in the car in her crate and had so much fun playing at our relatives home with another dog that was there...she behaved great around other people that were visiting....I was really proud of her :-)
She now spends more time inside with us. As soon as she comes in, she goes straight to her spot and doesn't attempt to pick up any items on her way like she used to. When we say "ah-ah," she let's it go right away. We were just saying this weekend that we can't believe she's the same dog in that she's done a complete turn around from where she was before you started training her. She now lets us pet her and sit with her inside which she never let us do before because she was so busy trying to nip at us. The kids can even go outside with her without her trying to jump on them which is amazing given that William rides his bike now on his own out there and she's great with him.
I know all of this is because of you so thank you so much for teaching her and us as well. You explained everything so that we understood how she saw things. You're a phenomenal trainer and we're so lucky to have had you be Shadow's trainer.

Thanks again for everything. Charlie (and we) have vastly improved since you've been helping us! Walking him is fun now! And he's not jumping on Lily, and he's going on the gravel! Yeah!

I just wanted to let you know what happened when Alice came home from the kennel May 8 to meet the new tile!
Well, not a single accident inside since!
I have continued to feed her in the the area we discussed. I make sure the door is open or if not take her outside every four hours or so. She falls asleep every night about 8:30, and no accidents during the night. It sure smells a lot better in my house now!
Thanks so much!

Hi Jen-I am just writing to tell you how much we enjoyed working with you. Thanks for your patience. Kasey has changed so much from a puppy that was destructive and completely out of control-to a puppy that is well-mannered and wonderfully obedient. We never could've done it without your help.
I feel lucky to have found you, and I will happily recommend you and your services to anybody looking for an experienced and knowledgeable trainer.
Our whole family thanks you,

It has been a year since you helped Lucy and I. I am friends and neighbors with Heather Fisher.
Lucy is the most wonderful dog ever. She now loves my Son, my husband and men in general. She is quite the watchdog at the front door but then wags her tail to see who is on the other side to greet with the "Say Hello" command. She is the sweetheart of the neighborhood and any place I take her.
She is so well adjusted now. She is a great trail/camping dog and stays with me while I fish. She even carries her blanket to camp fire. She is an "off Leash" dog most of the time and stays by my side.
We are over the clicking noises, for the most part. She may alert to one now and then, but quickly recovers.
She does great at our parties. Just lays in the middle of all the people, totally relaxed!
Everyone LOVES her and can't believe how well behaved and sweetly social she is.
Thanks you for your help and guidance.

Roxy is wonderful! She is exceptionally good-it is almost
unbelievable how good she is. She responds to me very well-has tested
me a few times but no problem getting her to comply. She will often
leave the cats alone but has gone after them a few times and for all but
2 or 3 times has responded immediately to "leave it". I am so proud of
her and so grateful to you for all you have done. She is much calmer in
general too. It is a joy to have her home. We love her so much.
(People have told us that this really can't be Roxy-you must have
switched her with a different, identical-looking dog!!)
I must get back to work, but again,you have made a world of difference
in Roxy's and our family's life. You did a fantastic job!

How are you? Hoping all is great. I can't believe the difference in George. My gosh! As you know, we almost gave him up. Never thought we could turn him around. There's no doubt he has responded beautifully to your training techniques. We don't have to fight him at the door and he actually listens to us now! You are absolutely wonderful and we sincerely thank you!

HUGE SUCCESS TODAY!!! I am so thrilled I am about to burst!
I had a new washer and dryer delivered this morning. Two HUGE guys came to deliver and install them. I kept Walter in the front bedroom with the door closed. Once they started installing, I opened the door and let Walter lay in the doorway and watch them. He was curious, but not upset. He was able to be in a down stay with those two guys not three feet from him. I fed him some jerkey treats that he loves. Then one of the guys commented that he was a cute dog, etc., and asked if he could pet him. We did the whole "say hello" thing, and Walter was a champ. This is a huge milestone for us, Jen! He was calm the whole time.
I had to tell somebody!!!
Let's try to get together soon. I need my Jen fix!!

We saw the best sight in the whole world this week-the perfect U-turn executed by our Brandi girl!!
JR and I were walking Brandi before work the other day. The two of them went off to chase a squirrel while I stayed on the street. When I looked over, I saw this off-leash dog approaching Brandi (the owner just kept running!!) JR ordered the strange dog to stop, gave Brandi the turn command, and like magic, she listened! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
