She spent over two hours with us and our dog and usead a variety of techniques. She took a great deal of time before the actual appointment to gather information and understand the situation so she could provide the proper guidance. In our case our dog was having trouble with oter dogs so she brought two dogs with her to work with our dog. She also gave us a great deal of information and resources that as new residents of

Winneconne Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
had been a true blessing for our dog! He has had much formal training, yet after being attacked twice he developed a fear of other dogs. He also had other fear issues related to wind, high pitched sounds, and anything he sees that is unfamiliar such as a log floating in water. He would growl, pant, and bark for seemingly no reason. He is a smart dog, knowing all commands well, but when fearful he then ignored, almost seemingly forgot everything he knew. We like to travel and were not happy boarding him knowing he is stressed with other dogs and his behavior was unpredictable. We discussed medications but felt his behaviors was something we may be doing and did not want to ‘drug him up’ unit we explored ways to possibly reduce his fears and slight separation anxiety. The best part about in home training is our dog was not stressed by the sounds and smells of other dogs which is what we had when we took him to training facilities.

got to know him and get him to trust him in his environment before we introduced him to stressful situations. Our dog loved him and responded to him immediately.

was firm but gentle with him, and gave us homework, which we needed.

travelled with us to stores and dog

, even riding in our car so he could see how anxious our dog was in the car. He took the time to get an overall picture and sense for the dog instead of a cookie cutter regimen of

. What impressed me the most was him saying each dog is unique therefore they do not all respond to the same training method.
Winneconne Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
has multiple contacts as well; therefore he can cross services to meet your dog needs. This had never been offered to us before. He was recommended by our vet, therefore when we agreed he needed medication we were very comfortable with that decision and so was the vet.

advised proper socialization to reduce fear around other dog. We were hesitant as we were unsure of how our dog would react.

actually met us at a doggie day care/boarder to make sure we were comfortable with her and assess our dog around other dogs to ensure he was providing us with the correct rehabilitation plan. He made sure our dog as well as we ,were in an environment he could learn to trust other dogs, which is what he needed. We have felt so comfortable with

We're happy to report that our dogs' owners (my spouse and I!) are becoming more successful with our training efforts, largely due to the suggestions from
Winneconne Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
and from her encouragement to be more consistent and persistent. Yesterday, we had a group of ten friends to our house, and were delighted that our dogs were much more civilized and well mannered than they typically have been. Although both dogs were pretty excitable at first, they quickly settled down when we and our guests commanded them to get "off", etc. They're wonderful, sweet natured dogs, and we want other people to enjoy them as much as we do. Thank you for helping us,

Winneconne Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
is a very calm, quiet lady who has a wonderful way with our dog. It only takes her a few minutes to get him to do whatever she asks him to do. Then she shows us what we need to do and has us practice. After every session, she follows up with an e-mail repeating the main points from the lesson so that we can continue to practice them with the dog. We booked three sessions with
Winneconne Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
for the price listed above.
Winneconne Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
came to our home and worked with our dog in the environment that he lives in. I am planning to have
Winneconne Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
come back again if there are any other issues with our dog that we need to address.
One thing that I really like about
Winneconne Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
is that she is very kind in dealing with our dog. She is never rough. The dog adores her.
As the lessons are private,
Winneconne Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
addresses whatever concerns we have, rather than falling a strict lesson plan. I think that she also does training classes for people and dogs that would like to work in a group.
Winneconne Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
has a very informative website. I suggest that you check it out.

Pat came out last year and provided an estimate for installing electric fence system we bought ourselves. Cost included install and an upgraded durable line. He was prompt in providing an estimate and getting the install completed - all within several days. The following spring our dog actually found and chewed a piece of exposed line coming out from garage. Pat immediately came out next day and fix line and put PVC around it; this was ll done at no charge. The again in August we called and some questions about some driveway construction we were doing, and Pat responded within an hour to answer our question. Overall great experience and responsiveness.

Just go to their website or Facebook Page and view all the "before" and "after" videos. No other trainers in this area will show you this, they do. Many even will be highly critical of the e-collar (aka "shock" collar) and site articles and others who object to them. There are bad collars out there and people who do not use them ethically. These collars feel the same as if you touched your
Winneconne Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
to an 8 volt battery, but at settings of 20 and above. We normally do not need to use a setting higher than "0" which is just a click she hears.
Our dog now will come, sit down beside us once she comes - even when distracted. She will sit and down, place and touch and heal. We are also working on these things now without her collar on. This has made a much calmer household, we don't have to crate her when company comes over or service is being done to our home and we are confident she will not accidentally injure someone by jumping, because we have control of her. At 70+ pounds, you need to be able to have control of your animal. We now have that.
As for the adverse "effects" reported, they are all bunk. Our dog still is the same dog and happier because we can take her places and have others come over without being anxious about our dog's behavior.
Winneconne Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
explains the use of the collar and explains simply how you continue to work with your dog to maintain the commands for the life of your dog. His love for not just his dogs but all is evident by how he treats all and what he also does to help rescue and shelter dogs too.
An e collar is the same thing used in chiropractic offices and physical therapy. It gets your attention or your dogs attention. If you have doubts,
Winneconne Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
will answer your questions patiently and even have you come and feel what the ecollar would be felt for your dog. And he can train any dog to be a good companion.

is professional in every way. We purchased his lifetime training, as well as let him take her for ten days to board and train her. I am very pleased with Princess behavior, especially since she came home after the ten days with

.
Winneconne Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
is wonderful with her, and his instruction week to week is great to work with me to re-enforce and maintain his training.
Winneconne Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
is always punctual and dependable.
The time that
Winneconne Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
had Princess in his care made all the difference in the world. Also, when
Winneconne Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
boards a dog, he is training as he is caring for them.
This is my seventh Keeshond. I have always had training in the beginning.
Winneconne Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
's training is the most complete, and has accomplished the most of any I have done. Princess is the most active of all the
Winneconne Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
we have had, and
Winneconne Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
has been terrific to train her to "behave" and yet retain her great personality.
I'm looking forward to continuing the relationship, and I know Princess loves and respects

. Thanks,
Winneconne Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
