Cody came to us with severe phobias of drains and grates. His owner is an avid runner and wanted Cody to go on jogs with her. But, due to “Cody’s” fear of grates and drains, he would often cause her to have to re-route her run and, at times, would cause her to trip and fall over him when he made a sudden stop. “Cody” also had issues with jumping on people and over-excitement when guests would come over, preventing Sheena from keeping him under control.
After a four-week board and train, Cody showed significant improvements. You will see a photo to the side showing him sitting and staying comfortably on a grate without being held by leash. His obedience is now very reliable even under previously distracting and exciting environments. After all of this, both we and Sheena discovered what a smart, hard-working, and loving dog Cody truly is. Below is her testimony.
“Andrew addressed every concern I had, from simple commands and manners to my dog’s fear of drains. Not only did he explain my dog’s behavioral issues, but also helped me to understand my role. After every session, all of my questions were answered and I felt more and more confident in my dog as well as myself as an owner. Now, “Cody” gets regular comments on his good behavior and I have no fear of tripping over my jogging partner.”Sheena,
