"Before I met Paddy and Amy, my Aussie/Border Collie mix was reactive and unpredictable. They taught me how to work with her in a positive manner and it's made a huge difference. Now I have the tools and education to guide Boo in the right direction to keep her and others safe and happy. I've learned so much!"

This program will shine up behaviors your dog already does and add behaviors your dog needs, like desensitization to learn to calm down.  We will discuss areas that are issues like jumping and over-excited behaviors for calmer behaviors with people coming into the house or seeing people from the car.  You will learn to watch your dog's body language to understand when they are stressed or scared and how to help them be calm.
