avatarElise worked with Sue and Mulligan for over a year, starting in 2011 and ending in spring 2012. Here's what she had to say, "We started when he first came home at 9 weeks. Elise know you taught me how to work with Mulligan and mold him into the dog I wanted him to be given his temperament when he arrived at home. This is exactly what I wanted when we started training him. I had a 100% improvement in mechanical and handling skills. Elise showed me how to be really comfortable with Mulligan and what I should expect from him. In turn, I am able to help Mark and the kids handle him as well. Elise is really positive giving Mulligan and myself correction and helped me laugh at myself when it took me a while to get it working".
