When we rescued our dog, Harley, we thought we had a good idea of what we were doing with all the websites and YouTube videos out there, but it just wasn't working. She was super excitable, anxious, and horrible at leash walking. It wasn't until we decided to get a trainer that things really fell into place and we couldn't have asked for a better teacher than Dave. She's so much better than where she was after three sessions than she was in the months of us trying on our own. We really appreciated his training style in only asking the dog to do things instead of forcing them. He's also taught us how to be better trainers for her. Highly, highly recommend to anyone with a dog, even if they think they are doing okay on their own!!
