Dog training type
Board and train at a facility
Leash pulling be gone! Scout & I are now living in harmony. After collaborating with Cousin Anne, Scout and I are able to understand each other on a completely different level. CAs guidance totally made it apparent to me to see where the miscommunication was happening — it was me! I was not exhibiting the calm, assertive behavior of a pack leader so Scout felt it necessary to be pack leader which he isn’t. He is a middle of the pack, Happy Go Lucky. He had a lot of excited, pent up energy which also lead to his leash pulling. I also didn’t realize that my idea of a half hour walk is not really a half hour walk of exercise. I would just let him sniff, meander & pull me where he wanted to go. CA explained that my walk was an exploratory walk but he also needs focused walking. Typically, we now start our walk with the exploratory walk and NO pulling! Then, after he is “empty”, I take over and lead our focused walk. Cousin Anne would have her “Walk & Train” session without me. Then, Scout & I would need to do the homework. The homework assignments Scout & I needed to do were fun & easy. I recommend Cousin Anne’s Dog Academy to everyone one I know.Sep 13, 2019
Cousin Anne offers me a lot of support with my very frisky young pup! Her approach to wee wee pad training touches upon various broader aspects from pen management to monitoring timing across activities, to reinforcement across behaviours. She keeps me well informed of his progress, including videos and is kind and generous. I enjoy working with her!Sep 25, 2019Verified
Anne has been absolutely wonderful with our extremely strong and high-energy 2-year-old Lab. From their very first meeting Anne was very calm, patient, and caring, and I could tell that she knows dog behavior inside and out— she knew just what to do to contain and safely release all that energy. My dog responded great to her, and after just a couple sessions I see a noticeable difference in my dog’s behavior. I’m really looking forward to having them keep working together!Aug 2, 2019Verified
Anne has been walking my Henry for over a year now and we just love her! She is so sweet and compassionate, when I am away I know my pug is in great hands with someone who cares for him. She always goes above and beyond to make sure Henry is getting enough exercise, attention and play, all while making sure i am up to date on his days with texts, videos and pictures. She also helped us out a bit with some training as he tend to have bad behaviors with leash pulling, paw cleaning, jumping etc. She was so patient with him and took the time to really transfer the skills and knowledge onto us because half the training is for the pup, the other half is for the owner applying those skills and Anne helped us see that. Hopefully Anne continues to be a part of our daily routine for many more years to come!!!Sep 13, 2019
Anne is responsive, trustworthy, and an excellent teacher. She shared many pictures and videos along the way so we got to see all of the progress in real time. Every time we bring our puppy to Anne, she gets so excited. Highly recommended!Feb 8, 2020Verified
