Struggling to socialize your dog and they’re just getting worse?
“Audra began socialization training with the same company we had the obedience class with. We began to notice that Audra was getting worse around other dogs"
“Audra began socialization training with the same company we had the obedience class with. It was twice a month for three hours which neither of us were allowed to attend. We began to notice that Audra was getting worse around other dogs.
She would lock in on another dog and pull us aggressively toward it when it was a few blocks away. We thought, “The problem will get worse before it gets better.” Then, twice in one week, Audra intentionally slipped her collar and chased after two different dogs. Though she didn’t bite either dog, she pushed and “beat up” the other dogs. We realized we needed a switch”.
Audra has transformed from a dog that made us nervous leaving our apartment for a walk to a dog that can be off leash in almost any situation because we trust her to focus and listen to us. After the Well Mannered Dog Program we are now comfortable enough and able to recognizing her body language and signals to prevent any escalation.
She can successfully greet other dogs both on and off leash, even in large groups. Training with Rhonda has changed Audra from a dog that we were perpetually nervous about taking outside into a trusted member of the family.” – Sam and Hannah
