I took one of your classes in the winter of 2012 at the elks lodge with my pup Steve. He is pretty skittish and we spoke during the class about how to acclimate him to Jersey city. Lots of dog owners have recommended training tools that are pretty aggressive. After learning so much from you I was hesitant about about trying these types of approaches. Now, after continued training Steve and I have learned a lot about each other. I use your redirect on a regular basis. Tonight I walked him with no issues for the first time! I am sure I could have gotten some results with a more adversarial approach but by working together I have instead developed a great relationship with my dog. I can’t thank you enough for all you taught me during class. It has made a world of difference. Thank you! Steve may never be the most out going dog on the block but I am happy to say he is very comfortable and getting better every day.  Melissa, Jersey City, NJ
