Our experience with Mary has been great. We accomplished so much with Chloe, our adopted 1 1/2 year old, 30 pound Pit Bull mix, that I had to write a review. We adopted Chloe in April 2018 and couldn't crate train, potty train, cat train, or people/dog train for walks. She was so reactive and we didn't know what to do after six months, on Prozac for two months, and no improvement.
Within 3 1/2 months of the first session with Mary, Chloe has been potty perfect for 2 months. Even if she is stressed, she does not mess in the house anymore. Walking her with the harness that Mary suggested has transformed our situation, even when we walk by people and dogs. I treat and guide her just like Mary trained, and no more jumping, barking, carrying on. When someone enters the house, it would take Chloe 1/2 hour to calm down. With the harness and training, it is literally minutes with most people. We also did some basement door training where the cats reside. Now, Chloe no longer bumrushes the door to chase the cats. Huge plus!
I don't think Chloe's changes would have occurred at all, let alone so thoroughly and quickly, without Mary's guidance and techniques.
