When I adopted Yuki in 2013 I soon discovered that she was dog aggressive and had severe separation anxiety; as soon as she saw, smelled or heard another dog she would starting huffing, screaming and charging, nothing I did would calm her down. I also couldn’t even step outside the door without her screaming and going into a panic.
With Shannon’s patience and Yogadog’s training and guidance I have learned how to better understand what Yuki tries to tell me, to remain calm when I need to re-direct her energy, and the tools we both need to help Yuki live a happier and more peaceful life. She can now focus her attention on me or move past other dogs without much fuss, and she can quietly wait for me at home when I need to leave the house for work etc.
The thing that I love most about Shannon’s methods is that rather than teaching my dog to fear a bad behaviour, I am encouraging and rewarding her for the behaviours I desire, which is something that is very important to me. I highly recommend Yogadog Dog training and Shannon‘s training style.
