I came to Sean, with my beautiful, sweet, goofy yet incredibly scary 5-year old pit mix that I had recently rescued. He had never been trained before or truly cared for and came to me with a rap sheet and the behavior to prove it.
He is a big dog. He did not trust anyone or anything, was a nervous wreck and had human aggression that put me so on edge we couldn't really function as a unit, nor could I trust anyone else around him. He needed help or else he wouldn't last with me or with anyone else and I knew this was his last chance.
I was overwhelmed with uncertainty and fear and exasperated by the trainers and advice that I was coming across. Needless to say, by the time we got to Sean, I didn't have much faith left at that point. I was so hesitant to send my dog to a board and train and I just did not know what to expect at all.
And let's be honest - the price is scary for little people like me who really don't have that kind of money to throw around. I bought my English Bulldog from a breeder for that price and trained him at Petsmart, lol! It did not work but he's been mostly easy his whole life. I was so uneducated on proper dog training.
I was scared, lost, we needed help and I was determined not to give up on this dog. I put everything I had into trusting Sean with him and I can absolutely say that it paid off for the both of us.
He came back a different dog with confidence, attentiveness and a calmness that I never could have achieved on my own. He is a work in progress and always will be, but the foundation that Sean established for us is exactly what I was hoping for. It's only been a few days since he came home but I already feel such a difference in his behavior and our relationship. Sean was able to develop a trust that did not exist before. He trusts me now and respects me and has become so chill, it's just amazing.
Sean is a very knowledgeable and realistic trainer that will instill the skills and confidence in you and your dog in a very straight forward and easygoing way. He's unlike any other trainer I've ever worked with before and is the only one whose methods and advice I know will stick with me forever. He teaches in a way that is easy to understand and what he practices just makes sense in the real world. He sends informative and useful reading material and posts videos online throughout the training to keep you engaged and educated. It is extremely helpful and good for visual learners like myself.
I am so glad that I took the leap and if you're reading this and my story sounds familiar, then you should too.
We couldn't thank you more Sean.
