The most amazing thing is seeing the joy a well-trained and well-balanced dog can bring a human. People who have struggled for many years or simply adopted an untrained dog, the struggle is the same. It is a struggle for us to get our dogs to understand what we need them to do to. Once we have over come that struggle the rest feels like a walk in the park.
Nemo & Michelle
"Nemo is seriously the best dog. I can take him everywhere now, even on airplanes. Everywhere he goes he is so well behaved and relaxed people think he is a service animal. He never runs away, he never barks, he is just the happiest chill little guy. He has brought so much joy to my life and I'm so happy it is so easy to take him with me whenever I want."
Gregg and Lina
"I literally would't believe it unless I saw it with my own eyes. Its like she is a different dog now. I can't even wrap my head around it. We just walked all the way through the park and she didn't even run away once after a bird or a squirrel. All I had to say was "leave it" and she stopped looking like she was going to bolt. The best part is that we can have people over and she doesn't bother anyone or any of our guests dogs. If we tell her to go lay down she just happily goes and lays down. If someone wants to pet her, she comes over and says "hi" and then just goes back to her bed and lays down. She is just the best dog."
Melissa, torah, and mj
"Eric is an awesome trainer because he taught me that what really needed to change was me. He showed me how my own fear and anxiety was actually negatively affecting my own dog and making her aggressive. We have so much of a better life thanks to him. Mj especially was at one point terrified of little dogs and always ready to bite them if she had to. Now she hardly even notices them."
"After 7 years & 3 trainers our Doberman-Ridgeback rescue was within days of being put down for fear based aggression. We were out of options. Eric took him, (and us) for a month plus ride with texts, videos, and coaching. I now have a new - different dog who is just a short step from perfect. I couldn't recommend Eric more highly as a dog trainer and dog owner coach. Eric is skilled, patient, and knows what he is doing. He saved my dogs life." - Keith T.
"We never would have adopted Iris if she wasn't trained. Now that we are adding her to the pack, our other dogs are going to have to step up their training to keep up with her" - Maria F (proud mom of Iris the Rottweiler)
