Dear K9 Centre,
Thank you so much for your help with Boston the Labrador and Wally the Staffy.
We love our dogs dearly, and unfortunately little Wally’s behaviour meant that we were beginning to not enjoy walking them and were stressed due to his constant escaping and high level of energy. After the sessions with you he is a new dog, and we are happier people to! The calm pressure techniques gave us a common approach to dealing with his pulling on the lead and running at anything that moved. The technique also allowed Wally to know what was expected of him, he went from being a dog that we were starting to lose hope for, to a dog that only wants to please, and now he knows how to!! Although I was not keen on Crate training it worked wonderfully and helped Wally to Relax & get used to down time, the technique worked brilliantly. He no longer goes under, over and through fences but is quite happy ”chilling” in the backyard.
Although Boston wasn’t causing us any grief, your sessions made me realise the potential he has and just how much he enjoyed turning walks into training sessions. He really loves to learn and please and is just a delight to walk now.
Again thank you so much for you’re friendly, consistent advice and ability to show us a new way of working with the dogs. We also appreciate being able to call you any time with quick questions and advice.
We all appreciate it very much, Tamsyn, Eric, Boston and Wally.
