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!
Find Out More About Hybla Valley, VA
Hybla Valley is a census-designated place (CDP) in Fairfax County, Virginia, United States, south of Alexandria. The population was 15,801 at the 2010 census, down from 16,721 in 2000 due to a reduction in area, resulting from some of the eastward neighborhoods including much of Hollin Hills being moved to the Fort Hunt CDP.
The Mason family’s Hollin Hall plantation, just south of Alexandria, had become the property of several owners, including Edward Curtis Gibbs and the Wilson family. Thomson Dairy had been founded on the land in the late 19th century, and lasted until Merle Thorpe purchased it in the early 20th century. The various dairy farms, such as Sherwood Farm, Hybla Valley Farm, and Popkins Farm were converted into suburban neighborhoods, while plans for the construction of the George Washington Air Junction and the Hybla Valley Airport began. The civilian airport was proposed to be the largest in the world, yet the land, which had once been dairy farm, was abandoned and is currently Huntley Meadows Park. During World War II, the famous Hollin Hills subdivision, to the east of U.S. Route 1 towards the Potomac River, was completed by designers Charles Goodman and Robert Davenport. Also during the war, the princess of Norway sought refuge from the conflict in Europe and wished to purchase the property of Hollin Hall; President Roosevelt personally inspected the land for her, yet his assistant, Thorpe, became its new owner in the end. The land surrounding it became a turkey farm, and was eventually bought by the Mount Vernon Unitarian Church. Gum Springs, a community first founded by a freed slave from George Washington’s plantation, was established along what is now Route 1 (Richmond Highway). In 1978, the Mount Vernon Unitarian Church donated land within Hollin Hills to create the wealthy Mason Hill subdivision. Although still starkly different from the affluent section of the CDP, the west side of Hybla Valley has developed over the years, including the up-scale and modern Mount Vernon Plaza in 2002.
