Lloyd had my German shepherd walking without any lunging/pulling/ barking at other dogs within 30 min. He is very knowledgeable and very affective at teaching you what to do so your dog can behave as they should. After the walking part was successful we moved inside the house to work on boundaries for a better/less stressful home life. 100% would and will recommend to anyone with dogs/people that need a little extra help.

Lloyd was exceptional. His years of experience made it so easy to understand the mistakes I have been making with my dog and in just two hours, I was able to see a significant change in my dog's behavior. It will take more work on my part to continue what we have started but I feel much more confident that I will be a better dog owner and that my dog, Winnie, will continue to learn to let go of her fears and be a more confident dog. Thank you, Lloyd. We have seen such a remarkable change in our dog already.

We have a Great Dane 120lbs and we were experiencing leash aggression. Reached out and talked with Lloyd he answered immediately and after explaining our issue we scheduled a Saturday 10am training. He told me he could help me in 1 visit and I was shocked. He showed up a few minutes early & came in, met our dogs and we talked about 20 minutes and he explained the behavior and how we were going to fix. We then took it to the streets and he worked with my dog 20 minutes while I watched. I’m lucky enough to live in a neighborhood where we have some friends with dogs and they were able to come out and assist in our biggest problem leash aggression with other dogs. If walking I would always have to walk the other way if we saw a dog or duck in a driveway and hide behind a bush because she would bark and get anxious. He was able to teach me how to get her to pay attention to me. During our training he gave me the tools to feel confident in walking pass dogs and being the dominant one. The next day it was just me and her and we had the best walk EVER! It took a lot of correction and extra time but as he said if we put the work in it will become more natural over time. I was emotional when we got home. We walked past 2 dogs and after following his directions we walked past and she didn’t even acknowledge these dogs. I was shocked and so happy. I highly recommend Lloyd to anyone that needs help I’m now excited to walk each morning.

Lloyd and his wife were, and continue to be, outstanding - truly professional, knowledgable, and effective. We brought home a rescue puppy, and soon realized we were in over our heads. It had been 16 years since we trained any puppy, and with our new puppy not having been socialized for his first 14 weeks, we had a cute looking lunging, biting, nipping, suborn, dominating, fear aggressing, protesting new addition to our family, which left us all wondering if he was going to be too aggressive to keep, since we have children in our home and elderly neighbors all around. At our first lesson, Lloyd assessed our puppy and assured us he was safe to keep, IF we socialized him and trained him properly. He demonstrated and explained step by step how we were to interact with him in every situation in and outside of our home. Our puppy has not lunged, bit, or nipped since our first lesson! Also, we discussed crate training, and our puppy is sleeping through the night without all of the commotion of scratching, crying, howling and barking that we endured pre- Lloyd. He has become much less fearful, after following Lloyds plan for meeting his socialization needs. We had a follow-up lesson two weeks later to learn how to walk him properly on the leash, so as he grows we do not have an out of control beast who is dragging us down the street. Again, after a short lesson, demonstration and education in proper technique, our puppy is walking when we ask him to do so, he used to sit down and only walk if he wanted to; he is no longer pulling us down the block, he walks behind or next to us; he has quit lunging at other dogs to play, and waits to see if we let him meet another dog; and he is waiting to walk into the house, instead of being overly excited and out of control. We still have a lot of work to do with our new puppy but I feel confident knowing I can text or call Lloyd with any questions or concerns. He ALWAYS responds in a timely manner with straight forward, easy to understand instruction. Also, we have Lloyd to thank for us getting our puppy on medication for Giardia, a puppy parasite that vets do not automatically test for, as when I described his eating habits and elimination patterns, Lloyd suggested this might be an issue. In fact, when we went to the vet, Giardia was causing our puppy to be ridiculously hungry and needing to go outside much too often. He was put on medication to clear the condition and that helped him with potty training and eating more appropriately. We will continue to check in with Lloyd from time to time, as he is amazing. We credit him with turning our truly horrific situation into a joyful loving one for both our puppy and ourselves. Obviously, we highly recommend him without any reservations what so ever. Thank you Lloyd! - L.K. HHI, SC. January, 2022
