avatarMy dog Cooper was attacked as a young dog and was never the same with dogs after that, which was making it hard to do things with him..he was very reactive and I was scared to bring him anywhere. I called Elise and signed up for private classes to help with his reactivity. I was nervous nothing would work and my partner was convinced that a dog behaviorist was a waste of time and money..that Cooper would never be able to play or be around other dogs! I can say, with great pleasure, it's like I have my dog back again! We go to the dog park daily now and he plays with dogs. I say that not only did Coopie get training, but so did I. I was so nervous that he was going to attack that the trust bond between Cooper and I was broken. Elise and her team helped us regain that bond and now we go on hikes, play with friends dogs and I couldn't thank her enough. I also use Elise for boarding when I leave town and I wouldn't trust anyone else with my baby!!! Thank you to everyone at Pet Behavior Consulting and to Elise for the hard work and attention they gave us!!
