Testimonial 15 - Roxy

My husband and I called Mary out of desperation - our 8 month Jack Russell mix puppy, Roxy, couldn’t be left out while we were gone because she destroyed everything in sight, and we couldn’t leave her in her crate because she got really stressed and drooled to the point of her blankets and toys getting soaking wet. We were really worried she had separation anxiety, so we had Mary come over and do an in-home consult.

That consult saved our relationship with Roxy! Mary explained that Roxy didn’t have separation anxiety, she just had serious exercise needs that we hadn’t been meeting. Mary gave us recommendations about how we could better accommodate Roxy’s needs, showed us feeding toys to help engage Roxy’s mind, and let us try out a different harness and leash that would allow Roxy to burn off more energy on our walks. Roxy is a different dog now! I’m so grateful we did the consult with Mary.
