I am beyond pleased with the progress my dog has made with Mary’s help! I was very worried when my 80-lb. Staffordshire Terrier started acting aggressively toward other dogs and people, so my vet recommended Mary. She came to our home to evaluate the situation and make recommendations. She was incredibly thorough and knowledgeable, and left behind literature to remind us of what we had discussed.
During the first two-hour session she taught us that our dog’s behavior was coming mostly out of fear, so the punishments I was giving him were not helping. Instead, she showed us how to make him feel safe in any situation, so he would not feel the need to resort to aggression.
Mary very patiently went over the training with us until we got it, and then checked in with us by email several times to see if we had any questions. After just a few weeks, it was remarkable how well he was doing! We invited Mary to come back for some more advanced training and have since made even more progress!
I really can’t say enough about how much Mary has helped us–I recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone who is struggling with an aggressive pet!
