“I cannot say enough about Susan and her training methods. Early on in our dog’s life, we encountered an unfriendly off leash dog that ended up attacking our dog. From that moment on, our dog had fear based leash aggression. We spent years trying to find a trainer to help us through this situation and then we finally found Susan’s growl class. Unlike every other training we had done, Susan used positive reinforcement and time to help our dog feel more comfortable while on leash. She gave us tools to help our dog when we were put in a situation that required immediate action. She used the group to her advantage, simulating real-life scenarios and setting up training opportunities. She taught us about the importance of space and a dog’s body language. She recommended reading material and gave us skills to work on outside the class. Most importantly she gave us an understanding of what was going on with our dog and taught us how to better communicate with our dog. Without Susan’s training, we would still be using scare tactics and prong collars to “correct” our dog. Now we know when we see another dog on our walks, we don’t need to panic. Susan taught us how to interpret our dog’s body language and how to respond. We have a better relationship with our dog because of Susan. We cannot say thank you enough!!” Crystal Greenwood
