We brought our dog Stanley to Mary on the referral of our vet. The situation was serious, with daily confrontations common and four bites to date.
Mary asked us to complete a survey of our history with Stanley. We also took videos for her to review. She understood everything before our first virtual session, so we got off the ground running. In two Zoom calls, Mary gave us specific, actionable advice that allowed us to get on one page as a family. Her recommendations took some effort to implement but were reasonable.
We thought that buying a purebred dog from a breeder would make him well behaved and we were wrong about that. Mary taught us that to train Stanley, we had to train ourselves, and while Stanley is still imperfect, he has lost almost all his aggressive behaviors over the past two months.
