This sweet guy is a shining example of success! He started his first Companion Dogs group class completely shut down. With zero eye contact and his body completely rigid, Hogan was not happy to be there- to say the least. Fast forward to now and he's the star of the show! Hogan loves coming to learn- he interacts with all his classmates and has graduated from my ELITE class. Hogan, my boy, I am SO proud!
It wasn't that Arthur was necessarily a "bad" dog - His own fear was simply misunderstood by his humans. After biting a neighbor, his family knew it was time to call a professional dog trainer.
Together, with Arthur's parents, we worked through a 6 week program designed to not only help Arthur become less fearful, but also to help his family better understand how to prevent a similar situation from happening again.
Annie was a rescue who wasn't so sure of new people or other dogs - or attending my group training class for that matter. She spent the better part of the first three classes safely parked on her Dad's lap, but with a little love (and a LOT of treats!) this sweet girl came out of her shell and learned to trust again.
