"Hi Leslie, Cooper passed TDI certification today Jack and I both passed as handlers! Thanks to you!!!!!! Big Hugs from all 3 of us!"
"Hi Leslie, thank you so much. It is amazing how different Lucky has been, he walks perfect outside with a strut. Just adorable, he listens and hasn't pulled once. My husband cannot believe it. He also is being great with treats and Belle. I can't thank you enough and so hope he can keep it up. We will look at everything you sent tomorrow and I will be in touch."
"I have been wanting to write for weeks now and finally found time to do it!! You performed a miracle transforming Riley into an incredibly fabulous dog! He amazes me everyday with how well he behaves. Where before he was the absolute ruler and was always in my face, as well as my food, I hardly see him anymore. He spends most of his time in his bed. John couldn't stand looking at the crate any longer and the rattling at night when Riley moved, so we got rid of the crate. When we go out, we close the bedroom door and he's fine. Yielding works great in the kitchen. I did it a few times and now he doesn't even bother. When he does want to come into the kitchen, John gets the leash and sits on the dog. Unbelieveable!! If you remember one of the last problems we talked about was the jumping when I walk in the door. John now has a toy waiting on the counter for me. I open the door, hand him the toy, he takes it and runs in the other room! I laugh every time I do it!! So easy and so effective! Anyway, I can go on and on. Thank you again."
"I just wanted to thank you - these sessions have been tremendously helpful! It is fantastic to see how much she has grown and that is thanks to you - we will be in touch."
"I just wanted to give you an update on Darcy. He's in fine form and his walks are SO good I almost can't believe it. He walks like a prince and we could never have done it without you. John and I are very grateful for your help and think of you often."
"I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know how Cocoa's doing. On the 4th of July, I had a party and Cocoa was terrific. He stayed in the backyard, off leash, and was very well behaved. He let everyone pet him and play with him and never begs for food! I now let him off leash in the backyard, when I'm there, of course. He enjoys running around and playing frisbee and football.
When I take him into town he is also so well behaved. People come up to him and pet him and he just sits there. He enjoys meeting new dogs and taking long walks. Also, he is potty trained. I just wanted to let you know that because of your training, he is a much more pleasant and obedient dog. Thanks so much."
A really terrific trainer, Leslie Berliner, Confidentk9.com, helped us build upon the training Sammie received in West Virginia from Eva Morales at It's a Pet Thang.
Thanks again for your dedication and care--you are tops!
Attached please find the photos I promised. We are so very lucky to have found you. Thanks so much and we will keep in touch.
I wanted to give you an update because i feel so encouraged.
Marbles and I did the 15ft leash session today for 20 minutes. She NEVER pulled on the leash and walked with me to point A and point B whether i walked fast or slow. I felt so good (and i think she did too). She was actually waiting to see what i wanted her to do next. When i was done and wanted to go back up the driveway I dropped the leash (i got curious to see what she would do). She just waited to see what i was going to do. I went up the driveway and so did she!! amazing!! She walked at the same pace as me.....this is so exciting!! There was a slight distraction when we were practicing but she never pulled on the leash and i just kept things moving along to divert her attention. And it worked...This is all making me feel very hopeful.
Excellent! Jack is doing great.
Thank you so much!!! I cant't believe how much we learned! My whole family is calmer - not just lucky- as we are implementing all that you have taught us.
"It was great working with you, too. We had no idea how bright Maggie was until we watched her with you. We were like two proud parents."
"Thanks for coming out on Sunday.....since you left, the walks with Lady have greatly improved!!! She's not pulling ahead and she actually seems to be enjoying the walks more......I am trying to associate the words "Walk/Leash" and I think she might be catching on! She sits calmly by the chair and waits for me to attach her collar and leash, then she sits by the back door and waits for my ,"Look" command. We even went for a short walk in the rain on Saturday night (The temp was warmer than normal). She's been staying off the furniture since I placed aluminum foil along the cushions......AND here's the best part.....she's sleeping through till 8-9AM!!! I was afarid to get out of bed on Monday morning because she hadn't been in my room to wake me and it was 8:45AM....I thought she was dead or sick or unconscious.....I WOKE HER UP! She was sleeping by the front door. Oh happy day! Her reward was an even longer walk because I was better rested."
"We are back from Florida and you would have been very proud of your pupil. He was amazing in the airport and on the plane. So well behaved!...NO LEASH ISSUES!"
"Thank you for coming yesterday. We learned a lot. I'm glad you emailed us to help reinforce what you taught us. I was glad to see Bodie respond to you so quickly, there's hope for us yet. I really liked your technique. You were very patient with us. Your intructions were clear,easy to understand and you worked with us until we did it correctly."
"For the first time in Rocky's life he walked to the driveway without pulling. I got teary-eyed. Sounds silly but it was like watching your child take his first steps. I was able to walk him half way around the block by myself. Next time someone asks for a trainer I will definitely give them Leslie's info. As I've said before, thank you. You are such a great resource!"
"She has shown so much improvement. I can't thank you enough. I believe it was your ability to help me become comfortable and confident that she feeds off of. I brought her to the dog park today at Coindre Hall and she had a great time with the other dogs and even let a man pet her. I am proud of her and so grateful to you. Since you came, Maddy does something she never did before and that is wag her tail. It's always wagging and she smiles. Thank you. I will call and be in touch because I know there is still work to do."
"Thanks for the helpful tips. We took her to the flower show and she did great. I was so proud of her."
"Now I know you CAN teach an old dog new tricks (behaviors). Thank you for giving Sparky the chance no one else would."
"Leslie, Thanks for the great advice. I agree that Charlotte needs more walks with just me and her."
"I think that we've made quite a bit of progress with Shorty. He walks quite nicely by my right leg. He does not have much of a problem when I do not let him on the furniture for various periods of time-he stays by my feet quite patiently. I do not feed him when he is too excited-he seems to understand this, and calms down a bit. If he growls at me, I address it-I stand tall above him and say no."
"Thanks so much, you were a great help and confidence booster for us."
"Thanks, Leslie. We have Jessie absolutely in her crate and in her small area in the corner of the kitchen. She is already used to being there with minimal barking and we feel much better that we are taking control. We feel liberated. We're taking our house back!"
"Thank you so much for today, the session was really very helpful and priceless."
"Still doing very well. I have found that the techniques work. The walking has been great. Less barking, not allowed near the table, etc. They seem to be getting the top dog idea."
"Becky made tremendous improvements. Thanks so much!"
"I just wanted to let you know how well Max and Lane are doing - the difference in them is unbelieveable. Delaney has improved 100% on the leash, I only have to correct her when she gets distracted. Max has stopped following me around so much and is much more tolerant of Lane."
"Everything is great. He has been so much better. He has not gone after Casey since the first day of his dog training with you guys. He is such a great dog now. so much calmer. Thank you so much."
