Dog training type
I have a 4 year old dog named Danchu who is the sweetest dog to me and my family, but notorious in the neighborhood for barking and growling at everyone (or anything) who approaches/gets near her. We had Danchu ever since she was born, and we tried many methods ever since she was 3 months old in order to socialize her. However she had some bad experience, including being chased by a big dog that wasn't leashed. I felt helpless and embarrassed every time Danchu barked at our neighbors, but nothing that I tried worked. After 4 years of trying and failing, we decided to find a trainer for Danchu. I read through and researched about many local trainers, and after careful considerations of various training method, I decided to call Eric. He was very prompt and responsive. Before we made an appointment, we talked over the phone about Danchu's problems and Eric took the time to answer all of my questions with patience and professionalism. On the day of the training, Eric came to our house to examine the reason behind Danchu's hostility towards strangers. He correctly saw that Danchu is not aggressive, jut scared and anxious. He taught me and my mom some simple ways to set boundaries in the house. We also had the chance to walk Danchu in various settings (around other people and dogs). Eric provided us with tools to help Danchu focus on walking with us , instead of leading the walk and barking at everyone. It was so amazing to see how easily we were able to communicate to Danchu to keep her focused on the walk instead of barking and pulling towards our neighbors. And all of this was done in an hour and a half long training session! Eric also gave us homework to work on. After Eric left, I tried walking Danchu using the methods he taught me. It was amazing to see how Danchu walked right next to me. We passed by two dogs, and both times, she didn't bark or act scared. When we passed by our neighbors, Danchu just kept walking! Our neighbors were so surprised because they've seen Danchu for a long time. It hasn't even been a day since Eric came, and we are already seeing very promising results. I am confident that if I stick to what Eric taught us, Danchu will be a polite and confident dog that everyone loves ❤ Thank you for all your work Eric :)Apr 12, 2020Verified
Eric was amazing! It's unbelievable what a difference one session has made. The dogs aren't barking or nipping at each other, or people. They aren't chasing the cat, and have stayed out of the kitchen and away from the dinner table. Most importantly, the whole family is now confident and comfortable interacting and handling the dogs. Thank you so very much!Apr 15, 2020Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Pricing $140 for a 90 minute session. I can teach you everything you need to know to stop jumping, pulling, barking, and other problem behaviors.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Everything starts with a free phone consultation. We can talk about what kind of issues you are having. I don't claim to be able to help everyone and sometimes I am not a good fit. I will let you know if I believe I can help you over the phone and we can then schedule our one on one training.
