My Great Dane Dog's philosophy on life was 'my way or the highway' and weighing in at 120 lbs, he pretty much got his own way. He was out of control on our walks and he would pull and drag me everywhere. The moment he spotted another dog or person he would strain and pull to get to them. I was completely unable to restrain him and as a result, could no longer walk him alone. He was often left at home when we went out and this made the problem worse.
Enter Niki Tudge from The DogSmith. After only a few virtual sessions with Niki I learned how to walk my dog nicely on new equipment, a harness. I also learned how to redirect him when he became excited. We have a way to go and will continue to work with him but already he is a completely different dog on our walks.
The virtual lessons were a life saver and actually they were more convenient than going to a lesson. We were able to learn and practice in the quiet of our own home. The crowning achievement was a beautiful afternoon we spent on the Tampa River Walk and there were lots of other dogs around. Bruno was really well behaved. I couldn't believe it was the same dog. His behavior is completely different. I could not believe that a few sessions could make such a difference, but they did.
