“My husband and I were at our wits’ end when we got our 6-month old puppy. She jumped up on us, on the windows outside, and was nipping at our clothes and hair. She was wild and rambunctious indoors and outdoors, she chewed on everything in sight, and she wasn’t house-broken. Our normally quiet household was in complete chaos and we didn’t know what to do.
We found Barbara Davis by searching on the internet, and called her for two emergency in-home problem-solving sessions. It was amazing. At the first session, we learned how to control our puppy indoors, how to get her on a house-breaking routine, and what to do to keep her from chewing on everything. At the second session, we learned techniques for managing our puppy’s behavior outdoors, and worked on further skills to prepare her for formal obedience classes.
Within three weeks, using Barbara’s positive reinforcement techniques, we had a calmer puppy that was house-broken and no longer jumped up on everything. We were more than thrilled. Thanks to Barbara, we felt like we were on our way to getting our lives back under control.”
