"I have learned that nothing good comes from raising your voice or punishing your dog. Dogs want to make you happy and play so if you keep things fun, they will do what you want."
"We feel great about training our dog. The lessons learned can carry over for the rest of her life and we have a well-trained dog quicker than we would have if we tried it by ourselves."
"Honestly, I thought that he was the first dog that was going to "beat" me and that I would have to surrender him. It broke my heart because he had the sweetest eyes and was so loving. Repetition and positive reinforcement with gestures of love was how we worked through them. I am afraid to know what would have happened to Patrick should we have not made the decision to move forward with training. Marilyn was the lifeline that we needed for Patrick to become a full fledged family member. "
"I have a level of closeness that I've never had with any other dog because we've learned how to really communicate with each other. I had to relearn a Whole Lot of Stuff...I'm really glad I did it. Now training new companion dogs decent manners is a snap! And I know where to get help as soon as I run into a behavior that stumps me in a new dog."
