Kim and Deb reached out to us for fearful dog training in Mantua, NJ. They had rescued Sophia from a breeder that was discarding her for not being able to produce anymore puppies. Using Perception Modification, we were able to take Soph from a trembling shell of a dog that did not want to come out of her crate, afraid of anything resembling a leash and simply could not be in the same room as strangers. Now, Sophia runs and plays with neighborhood dogs, enjoys her walks with the dog walker, goes on trips to the Outter Banks and is just as much of a social butterfly as her mommies! Good Job girl!
