There have not been any aggressive acts or lack of compliance with our commands. He seems to be fine with this new status. He actually seems to be looking for praise. He will come up to me, and not jump on me, instead going into a forced sit position. I will then praise him heavily. He periodically jumps when he is excited. This is happening less frequently as the days pass.
We had my niece and her family over on Sunday. When they arrived we had a hard time keeping Buffie from jumping on them. But he stopped. On their last visit he was very noisy and we had to remove him from the door. This time he was a perfect angel...
We have been repeating commands. Thanks for the advice. I will tell Barb. She especially is saying "heel, heel, heel." when she has a distraction on the walk.
Thanks again for the follow up. We are very happy with the results so far, and will call you later in the week.
Please feel free to use us as a reference.
Jack is like a new dog! We've been following your advice and Jack has become a joy to walk. He actually watches me when we walk now and no more snarling at strangers.
Thanks so much for everything!
We thought Chase would have to be put to sleep. I was amazed that you were able to stop her biting and aggressive behavior. You were our last hope and you literally saved Chase's life.
Thank you Sandy!
I admit I was skeptical that anybody could train Butch. He not only failed obedience class but was the most stubborn dog I ever owned. Butch is now obeying commands and walking on a heel without a leash. I'm very pleased.
First I want to tell you that we took Dori on the river last week. We were all so relaxed and had a great time. Once we put her life vest on everyone assumed she was in search and rescue training because she was bright orange and incredibly well behaved.
After that we ended up at Petco looking for the back pack you suggested we try. It happened to be adopt a dog day so I had to maneuver Dori past a large group of dogs. She did okay. I know we'll have to work harder at that, but using your methods we got through it pretty well. Someone let their little dog wander up to Dori from behind. There was no time to react so I slacked up on the leash and did some happy talkin.' Dori was fine with this little dog, who turned out to be a new puppy weighing 4lbs. My biggest concern was that Dori might sit on her! She was startled, but fine.
On Mothers Day we went to a local fishing pond with our mom. Dori was delightful. Her focus was taken from time to time by the Geese and the people, but I was able to keep her in check. We went to Hospice in the afternoon and she never left my side unless directed to. She was far less uncomfortable and unsure of herself, falling asleep under the bed of the last person we visited.
I introduced her to the tunnel for agility that I bought last year. She didn't like it, but after 15 minutes of hanging out on the ground with her she followed me in and now she's running laps through it. I put it away last summer because she just hated it and refused to go through.
I forwarded the pictures because I wanted you to see how happy she is. Obviously we are thrilled, but Dori has become relaxed and happy. She's in my basement studio asleep at my feet. This is not like her and such a pleasure.
It was hard to admit I couldn’t ‘control’ my dog, but desperation pushed me to call in a pro. Once Sandy arrived all that changed. He fully understands the nature of dogs and how owners can harness that. My worst moment of feeling like a failure while being honest about the problems we were experiencing was better than the best day I’d ever had with my dog before Sandy came. He doesn’t make you feel bad, but rather capable and informed. He’s a true dog whisperer, focused on helping you enjoy life with your dog the way it was meant to be – Happy, Fun and TOTALLY Stress Free!! Don’t live with it. Don’t put your dog down or give it away. Call Perfect Manners. We have an entirely different dog now. She’s a go anywhere, stay calm, “Oh, wow where can I get a dog like that?!” pooch, and we are loving it! Trust me, you will too.
That is all I can say. After a 1 hr session I now have my uncontrollable dog walking at a heel and not going crazy when the doorbell is rung. I am very happy that I had Sandy help with these problems and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND to everyone with a dog.
What impressed me is how quickly my dog got the message. It's like he knew immediately what is expected. It is such a joy to have my dog come the first time I call him. This is money well spent.
I think I've figured out Sandy's method. He must have came with a van full of well-trained dogs, and when he took Sparky out for a walk, he spray-painted one to match and switched them out.
The walks are such a pleasure now, as opposed to the tug-of-war we're used to. He's testing me occasionally, which I expected; but I'm doing my homework and he's responding beautifully.
I know none if this is a surprise to the trainer, but Sparky seems so much happier and he's calmed down immensely, as I saw even during Sandy's visit. Thank Perfect Manners so much for this doggy miracle! I will not hesitate to recommend Sandy to anyone I know who can benefit from his service.
I just got back from walk with Magic, we went with her dog friend Tucker who is the most well behaved dog I have ever met, well, Now Magic is the most well behaved dog I have ever met. I was able to walk our park for 1 hour and 15 minutes with my friend and her dog. I was even able to drop the leash and she stayed with me until I allowed her to roam while playing when I called her she came without reservation. I even tested her with my neighbor who she loves to see and jump all over. She was amazed as are me and my Husband, Thank you so much...Perfect Manners we should have called them 6 years ago. The walk I took today was the most wonderful walk I have ever had with her. I made her calm down before I let her play with Tucker and she was having a great time and so was I . Thank you again.
Thank you to Sandy of Perfect Manners-you saved our dog. What a great experience for my entire family! Our dog, Chance was very protective and was lashing out and attacking almost everyone he didn't know. Sandy taught us what we were doing wrong and what needed to change. Three months later and Chance is a new dog with just one meeting with Perfect Manners. Sandy is like the "Super Nanny" for dogs!
