Sean and I are so grateful that we found you for training Amber and helping fix her (and our) issues with the separation anxiety she was having. Obviously living with a large German Shepherd with any type of behavior problems is rough, much less one that would chew her way out of her crate and then eat the door, carpet, or window frame. Her time with you is just what she needed and just what we needed in order to get her back on track and give us a fresh start. Thank you again! 6 months later and she is still doing great!
I am still in awe!
From the dog training to the nutritional advice to the new routine that you've given us - we truly cannot thank you enough. We clearly were a mess when we brought Bruno to you and really thought that all the freedom we gave him was a good thing (yes, we were raising him like he were another child of ours); which was doing more harm to him than good. Luckily, he was still young enough to be saved and retaught the GOOD behaviors that we envisioned. Thank you again for all of your guidance.
Very happy with the results
I am typically hard to please or impress on top of my usual skepticism. That being said, when I initially talked to Megan about the details for bringing my lab to her for a month long board and train she was very clear and upfront about what I could expect and the results that would be realistic to achieve given my dog's history. After one month, I came to pick Eddie up and I was actually blown away by the results, it was more than I thought was possible. He was relaxed and actually playing with other dogs. That was a game changer for me and I absolutely recommend Megan to everyone I know with a dog.
She's a miracle worker!!!
For 7 loooooong years, we tolerated and allowed our dog to basically run our house. He was pretty obnoxious in every way which included barking at everything - even if nothing was there, terrorizing our children, jumping, stealing, chewing our children's toys, STILL having accidents - (you get the point). I was at my breaking point when we had to replace our carpet for the 3rd time due to his potty accidents he was still having. We took him in for his initial evaluation and Megan told us it was most certainly a learned behavior and their was never any real structure in Jax's life (which there wasn't in hindsight). After 3 weeks, he came back a NEW and AMAZING dog. He was respectful, polite, well-mannered, and finally enjoyable to be around. We obviously have to keep up with the training otherwise im sure he'd try to pull his same shenanigans again. But we stick to the training program and everyone is happy!
