"I just wanted to post to say how amazing my first lesson was. My dog Maddie is a very scared dog, so I thought she would be harder to get through than most. She is frightened by noises, wont walk on a leash (unless it is a trail with no one around) and if she is scared for whatever reason, she wont even go in our own back yard. She, in essence, is a homebody (and very well behaved there).
The first lesson Jessica came and Maddie was doing her normal barking, tail tucked between her legs running around the house, afraid of strangers. However, within the first 10 minutes, she got Maddie to warm up, the tail was un-tucked and she was playing!
The best part was she was able to get Maddie to walk on her leash outside, around the block. Normally, when I try and walk her anywhere near cars, noises and people, she immediately freezes and refuses to walk. Jessica got her to walk around our apartment complex, no problem. I was amazed. I have been using the same techniques and have been able to walk her much farther distances these past few days.
I highly recommend Jessica and I cant wait until I have more lessons to work out all Maddies little quirks."
