Is this going to work for my dog?
Haley & Julep
This course has been so incredibly helpful for us! Julep is a different dog than she was 7 weeks ago - and, more importantly, I have more patience with her because I have a better understanding of how she learns and processes behavior and motivations.
Overall, I am extremely pleased with the results from each unit. Julep now knows how to settle in her bed during dinnertime (and STAY there! It's truly amazing!). She's a better walker and a (nearly) perfect hostess at the door, no longer tackling my family and friends when they come by.
I appreciated all of your helpful feedback on our training videos.
Thank you for everything!
