"I have 2 rescue chis and one shows dog on dog aggression, dog to person aggression, fearful and reactive small dog syndrome, stranger danger issues and a list of others small issues. After a very thorough phone consultation we made an appt to come to my home I got effective methods that were easy to follow and have gotten immediate results. Ive been on my own only 1 day since martha left and I have started to exercise several modifications on my own and I can see the behaviour change, such as waiting at the door until I give permission to exit, not jumping up on the couch uninvited, barking at lots of little noises and he listens to me and my leadership carries much more weight now. Martha audio tapes your sessions and leaves you the tapes to review. I also video taped them and have been reviewing segments in the last day which is helpful. She comes just one time and addresses everything at that visit. And it is effective to do it that way. It probably costs less and it takes less time out of everyones schedule. I like getting it done in one shot. For her level of experience and the effectiveness of her teqnique she is a good value. She understands the psychology of the dog, the "why" and gets to the root of that as opposed to just "training". Its not about just the dog changing, you as the leader have to change too and she shows you exactly how to do that. Follow up phone calls are included so if something isnt working quite right or something else arrises she can coach you over the phone if you call her. I am so glad I did this. I know that soon I wont have to worry about my dog nipping at strangers, or barking non-stop everytime someone comes to the door, or growling at my husband when he comes to bed or attacking my other chi. Thanks Martha!"
