We’ve had Diego for a few years now. We rescued him and although it took a little while, he eventually got most of the basic commands down (sit, stay, come, etc) and we were pretty happy with that. However, he certainly has a lot of energy and although we loved his spirit, sometimes it was problematic – we’d try to take him for walks but he’d pull so hard that it made it impossible, he’d also jump all over our guests when they’d enter our home, and treated our nice furniture as his own personal selection of doggie beds. The real kicker came when he jumped out our dining room window – right through the screen! When he did it a second time through our kitchen window, we knew we needed help – and FAST.
That’s where John came in. He was great to fit us into his schedule on such short notice but he recognized how nervous we were about Diego’s dangerous behavior. He worked with us on how to be more confident leaders and taught us several techniques on how to better communicate with Diego. The change in Diego is remarkable. Our friends and family are stunned by how much calmer and happier he is and are thrilled that we have gained control of our lives back. We are practicing every day and couldn’t be happier with the results.
We are so appreciative that John has restored the balance and the peace in our home.
Thank you John!
Michelle, Scott & Diego
