I desperately needed help for my dog Honi she’s very aggressive so bad that whenever I walk her and we see people or pet I have to carry her and walk the other way. That kept her from walking/exercising and that gives her a lot of energy to ruined the house and separation anxiety for being at home all the time. My main concern is trying to get rid of her separation anxiety and her to get enough exercise.
I didn’t know where to start so I went to yelp and looked for a dog trainer, that’s where I found James. I told him my concerns and I explained how Honi might be impossible to train but James didn’t seem to mind the challenge so when we met at the park he actually sat me down and got to know us and tried to figure out the root of the problem, while watching how Honi interact with people and pets. I didn’t really know what to expect since this is the first time I am seeking professional help.
I appreciate how James didn’t go straight to training Honi he actually study and try to gain her trust before even start going near her. Before we ended our first training he told me that he is almost certain that he can fix honi’s anxiety since it very similar to his pet. James would give you assignments to make sure that you’re doing your part at home. every training is an Hour long however, he doesn’t rush you and he knows when your pet is exhausted he might end it sooner and add another day to make up time. his patience with honi is admirable, he would actually seat on the ground to help her calm down and when he sees that she’s ready he would teach her how to be confident again and when he sees that Honi got it he would pass her to me and coach us.
Working with James totally changed what I thought I knew about my baby! I cannot express how much I appreciate James and everything he thought us! thanks again James!
