“Prior to our training, Coco could never walk past the doorman without barking, lunging, snarling. Now he can do a down-stay and actually relax in front of the doorman. His stress level has decreased significantly and so has mine.” – Leah R.

“Rex and I are able to walk by dogs of all sizes now, and if he feels stressed out he looks at me for a reward instead of acting out.” – Deirdre P.

“School For The Dogs was great in helping me understand and help my terrier who was very loud and aggressive towards other dogs on the street. Ghost is now a proud member of the doggie play group School Yard and enjoys being around his other dog-buddies – something which seemed impossible half a year ago!” – Barbara L.

“It was impossible for me to take my dog outside without him growling at another dog and I honestly had no hope that things would get better. I was skeptical that we could get it under control, but we developed a plan and I kid you not he was back to normal in a couple weeks. Even though we got rid of the aggression issue, we are still training with Kate, and his behavior has only changed for the better. He is so calm now. He used to pace and whine, like he couldn’t turn his brain off, but now he will sit and lie down without any prompting. He just seems so much more relaxed.” – Betsy V.
