Dee Ganley Dog Training & Behaviorial Consultations
About this pro
39 years in business
One year after rescuing a one-year old female German Shepherd and despite countless hours in classes with various trainers and consulting behaviorists, that dog was still aggressive/reactive , not only towards dogs and strangers, but to me and the rest of my family. I was very close to giving up on her until I was fortunate enough to meet Dee Ganley. Dee taught me that a reactive dog is one who has to be taught self control with positive reinforcement, that my dog needed a handler who has to remain calm to properly manage her reactive behavior and how to use different techniques to change her responses to stimuli. Dee sees every dog as an individual, she has terrific dog instinct, and has many years of experience helping dogs and their handlers, so she is able to give advice based on your own dog's needs, your experience as a handler and your level of commitment . Thank you, Dee, for all your help, guidance and understanding, which has made my dog, Annie, a cherished part of our family!Apr 7, 2011
I highly recommend Dee to anyone looking for a wonderful, compassionate, hands on trainer for their dog. Dee knows her stuff. It is all positive reinforcement and she offers a variety of methods and tools. She looks at each dog individuality and caters to their needs. I have been to several trainers in the area but Dee is by far the best. I have done group classes as well as privates and have never been disappointed.Apr 6, 2011
- How did you get started doing this type of work?Had a difficult dog I adopted and loved figuring her out with out intimidating her to listen to me... Kindness and using the science of operant conditioning techniques works;-)
