Take two gorgeous, if somewhat untrainable Border Terriers, one owner tearing her hair out and a desperate need to find help.
A recommendation from a friend resulted in a phone call to Mary who owns and runs K9mana. Luckily Mary lives not too far away from me and after I described the many and various issues my dogs had, Mary arrived with a gentle understanding of dog ‘language’ and with calm kindness trained both me and my dogs and moved us to a much calmer place where we have all continued to learn. Two home visits have set us on the right track.
Mary sent supporting emails, building on the work she did face to face and we will ask her to re-visit for further training/fine tuning.
I would thoroughly recommend Mary to anyone wishing for logic based, calm training of both owner and dog. There are no harsh commands or reprimands and voices are never raised.
