Before contacting the K9 Centre, I always envied those people walking down the street with their well-behaved dogs trotting calmly next to them. We thought we were destined to be dragged along the foot path by our two excitable
Shar Pei’s forever.
My husband and I were very skeptical at first. We had been through puppy training, clicker training, numerous harnesses and an endless supply of treats, but nothing had managed to calm our Agro (3-year-old male) and Toot (2-year-old
female). While we love our furry family, we were sick of our guests being jumped on and scratched, our clothes being ripped, altercations at the dog park and the embarrassment of being walked by our dogs (and not the other way around).
However, after our first session, we noticed an immediate change in our dogs’ behaviour. As the lessons continued, Agro and Toot become calmer, less anxious and easier to control. You have armed us with the skills and knowledge to give our dogs the direction and leadership they were looking for all this time.
I’m excited to report that I can now walk Agro and Toot together, something that I haven’t been able to do since they were puppies. We wish that we had called sooner, but we’re very glad that we did. We’re happier, our dogs are happier – so thank you!
Mel, Joe, Agro and Toot
