Testimonial Details


When [Ellie] was 12 months old (and only 85 pounds), I had taken her to a Pet Store obedience class, which was completely ineffective. Your advice on how to modify my behavior at home, helping me to understand why she behaves the way she does, in addition to the training classes, has resulted in a 180 degree turn-around in Ellie's temperament and personality! It's like owning a whole new dog.

I am writing to express my gratitude for you and for your training center.

When I first brought my 22 month old, 135 lb. Newfoundland, "Ellie", to your training center, I had almost despaired of every getting control of her. When she was 12 months old (and only 85 pounds), I had taken her to a Pet Store obedience class, which was completely ineffective. She was aggressive to both people and to other dogs. Whenever people or dogs would walk by our house, Ellie would lunge at the windows, bark and snarl at the passers by until they were out of sight. If I took her for a walk where there might be another person or animal was around, Ellie would bark, growl, snarl, and pull at her leash until I could drag her away.

It was embarrassing, and downright dangerous, to take her anywhere. I had almost resigned myself to having a dog that could never be taken out of the house when my sister found your training center on the internet, and suggested that I bring Ellie in for an evaluation. At our first meeting, you gave me a little bit of hope, and I was impressed by your insight into Ellie's character. After every week of training class, I've seen an improvement in her. When we did the class exercise where the dogs lay next to each other in a radial pattern (almost touching), and Ellie didn't even glance at the dog next to her, I could have burst into tears, I was so grateful and relieved.

Last weekend, Ellie and I accompanied my niece's high school class on a hike up Mount Wachusett. Not only was Ellie's behavior exemplary, she made friends with everyone she met (including the biker gang that were taking a rest on the side of the road). Your advice on how to modify my behavior at home, helping me to understand why she behaves the way she does, in addition to the training classes, has resulted in a 180 degree turn-around in Ellie's temperament and personality! It's like owning a whole new dog.

Ellie and I are looking forward to continue training at your facility, and we hope to work towards her Canine Good Citizenship certification. Just three months ago, I wouldn't have thought it was possible. Thank you!
