From fearful to happy
Thanks heaps, Suzy for helping me and Paris. Since our first class with you Paris has changed from a fearful, anxious dog who had 'issues' with men and other dogs, to a much happier, calmer and friendlier dog. To see her running around and playing with another dog (something I had not witnessed so far), having so much fun, was something that gave me such joy. And this was only half way through the class. During the lunch break she also went up to one of the men there and planted a doggy 'kiss' on his cheek as well as confidently approaching a number of others.
I had been taking her to 'obedience class' for awhile and had gained some minor results but nothing like what you achieved with her (and me) in such a short time. Your awareness around Paris was amazing and the practical advice you gave me was so insightful.
I am enjoying her so much more now and am far more trusting of her and aware of my role as pack leader. We have fun together and lots of romps and cuddles. You inspired us both with the confidence we required and you certainly have a great talent with dogs and their 'owners'.
Much gratitude for sharing this with us
