Dog trainer's individualized plan tames pup
"Turk [Akbay, the owner] has come to my house four times to train my dog, Cash," says Nancy Burton. "Turk settles for nothing short of perfection. The first time I met Turk, I just had a feeling this was what I needed to do.
"This was my last resort - I was at the point that I was going to have to get rid of my dog. I'd wasted training classes and nothing was close to clicking. When Turk came to my house, he just got my dog - and my dog loved him.
"We sat down and talked about what I needed. He mapped out a plan for me and asked me if I was ready to teach my dog. At the first session, I was controlling my dog instead of the other way around.
"My life has completely changed. My dog and I are much closer and so much happier. I truly never thought that something this amazing was possible."
