"When I contacted you, you were Leila's my daughter's 3yr old Great Pyrenees/Boarder Collie rescue, last chance. Since moving from a home where she could go in & out on her own & had an invisible fence to a townhouse where she had to be walked on a leash, she had become aggressive to the other family pets, lunged at strange dogs to try to fight, chased skateboarders, bicycles, & motorcycles. My daughter was moving into an apartment that fall & planned to take her when going back to college. I felt Leila was at risk of hurting another animal or person & couldn't risk my daughter taking her unless she changed dramatically.
From the very 1st day Karen met Leila, she became a different dog. She not only taught Leila how to be a dog but taught me how to be a proper owner. If Leila had an incident, it was always due to owner error (me). What a major difference you had on our family, working with Leila on triggers, helping her learn to be a dog, & training the owners how to be responsible owners!
Leila had always been a loving dog & family member. However, now she was happy! Happy because she knew how to be a dog, how to greet strange dogs, & how to respond to commands.
As soon as Karen entered the house, Leila would light up. She ran straight to her, sat in a beautifully attentive stance directly in front of Karen & looked up at her with pure love. Amazing!
Additionallt, Karen also worked with my daughter & her boyfriend before the move. After Leila moved in with Audrey, Karen followed up with a comprehensive summary & guidelines for Audrey to ensure Leila didn't backtrack due to the move.
Thanks to Karen, I was confident Leila would not hurt a human or pet & felt comfortable sending her off to college with my daughter. I'm happy to report both are doing wonderfully & she's the favorite dog in the complex.
Thank you Karen. You saved our family pet & make a special dog & young lady very, very happy!"
