His walks are more calm, and he has even started to play...

“Thank you so much for an awesome experience with Kodah. We are looking forward to some peace and quiet at the campground. You have been a savior to our family. He has come so far. His walks are more calm, and he has even started to play, when the playful side of him had all but disappeared. We are so thankful for your help and for sharing your gift with us.”

I especially appreciate that Susan gave me some very concrete things to do..

“I had no idea how to deal with all the jumping, and I really appreciate how Susan thought it through and helped me to understand what was going on. I especially appreciate that she gave me some very concrete things to do, which was what I really needed.”

We were amazed by what you did with Pippa and her crate training.

“We’ve known that you’re good, but we were amazed by what you did with Pippa and her crate training. Boy, do you ‘get’ both dogs and people. As I write, she is sound asleep in her crate in my office. Just as you predicted. Thank you so very much for helping make sense of our lives with this dog.”
