Dear Christine, I want to start off and let you know that you have helped us really start our happy family. Grace is a completely different dog then when we first brought her home, and more importantly you have helped us learn how fulfill and enrich her life. Sara and I were talking about when we first brought Grace home, we would spend at least three hours a night dealing with her behavior problems and trying to calm her down. Those first couple months were a very frustrating time in our lives. Gracie was running our lives and we were letting it happen because we did not know how best to deal with her.
After our sessions with you, Grace is now what we would call "almost perfect." Having not even owned Grace for a full year yet, I only see life with her being richer and sweeter. You really gave us the tools to learn about her; not just how to correct her behaviors, but why she does them. In my opinion that has has been the most important part. Riding the bike with her has become a daily part of our lives, and it has really worked out very well for everyone. This past summer we even taught Grace how to swim, and we really did have to teach her. Swimming definitely become one of her favorite activities! I have been doing some off-leash work Grace and she is making great progress with it. The squirrels are always an obstacle, but she is learning to use her nose.
Just wanted to thank you for all the help you have given our pack!
