Dog training type
We signed up Emmitt (strong-willed 3 year-old Lab/Great Pyrenees Mix) for training with TDS. Emmitt had always been a good dog, with potential to be great if he could overcome this one very annoying and troublesome flaw – reactivity to other dogs. (He thought he needed to protect us.) Also, we have a new grandson on the way, and wanted to make sure Emmitt would be in control around the baby. So, we began goal-based training sessions to 1) desensitize his reactivity issue and 2) get him ready for the baby. I have to say, the benefits have gone way beyond the goals set. Emmitt is a completely different dog. He has progressed tremendously beginning with the first session. The way he recognizes me as his “leader” and his rapid progress on his obedience training has been amazing. At first I was skeptical of some of the methods. For example, having him tethered to me with a 6 foot leash when I was doing my routine around the house seemed crazy. However, after doing it for a week, even without the leash, he happily followed me everywhere and looked to me to tell him what to do! All instruction is based on positive reinforcement only. The trainers are great to work with. They come to you (to your house or another designated location). For us, it was a park near our house that we used for some of the training sessions. This is much better and more sustainable, since the dog is being trained in his regular environment. In our case, they even brought their own dogs to help work with Emmitt, and left a baby stroller & doll at our house to acclimate him to having a baby around. Emmitt still has a ways to go, but is much less reactive to other dogs. And most importantly, we are confident he will not be problem around the new baby either. My experience with TDS has been outstanding. I highly recommend them, especially if you have a unique training need.Sep 7, 2018Verified
We are blown away with the progress of our rescued Border Collie puppy. The trainers at TDS Canine Solutions took our fear agressive 6-month old to a well behaved puppy in just 5 weeks. We could not be more impressed with their style and results. Loving traing that not only taught our puppy how to behave, but professional expertise that taught us how to raise this sweet boy. We are forever grateful. By the way, we've had more than 10 dogs in the past, but simply couldn't figure out how to deal with with fear agression. This team knows their stuff!May 27, 2018
