After working with Melanie for an hour, my German Shepherd and I achieved what I could never achieve during hours of training with other dog trainers...no more lunging and barking at other dogs while on leash. It was amazing to see Axel totally under control as I walked him past dogs, of all sizes, even those lunging and barking at him! I would definitely recommend Melanie as a very effective dog trainer! - K.M.
Annie had another wonderful walk! She was so happy. Still with us in the same room. She's her old self. Thank you - A.S.
Melanie is AMAZING! We have a very reactive rescue dog, Duchess, on whom we have spent $6,000 in training and training aides over the last 3 years. In January Duchess attacked another dog in our neighborhood and we reached out to a well-known training company we had been using when we lived in VA. The experience was unhelpful at best and left us feeling demoralized, frustrated and defeated. We didn’t trust Duchess and she didn’t trust us. I was ready to resign myself to the fact that our girl would never be able to go out in public because she would aggressively react to people and dogs, and I struggled to keep her under control and everyone safe. Then we found Melanie. She is a true God send!
From the first time she met Duchess, she encouraged us and gave us hope. Melanie understood her extreme sensitivity and taught us the tools we needed to communicate effectively with Duchess, facilitate calmness, build her confidence, and repair the trust between us. It was refreshing to finally have a trainer who listened to us, offered helpful feedback, gave us homework, acknowledged and appreciated the work we were putting in, and encouraged us when we felt discouraged.
Duchess is so much better with people and doesn’t react to them when out in public any more—huge win!! She is definitely improving with other dogs and can see them without losing her mind. And when she does react, I have the tools and confidence to handle it so that the incident is short lived and she gets herself back together quickly so we can move on.
I am beyond grateful to Melanie’s vast knowledge and skill set, encouragement, kindness, calm energy and compassion for dogs and their people. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a positive approach to dealing with challenging canine behaviors and to build a positive relationship with their dog.
