I have a six-month old Wheaten Terrier who, at four months, became terrified to leave our yard. At first, we tried to coax him with treats and comfort him to try to build his confidence. Nothing worked. Finally, in desperation, I contacted Sandy and Perfect Manners Dog Training. During the initial phone interview, I explained my frustration, and he asked me alot of questions that didn’t seem related to the problem. He visited our home and spent alot of time discussing our situation with my husband and I. Then he took our pup out by himself to “hear his side of the story”. Ten minutes later, I looked out the window and saw Sandy and my formerly terrified dog walking down the street together. He then turned the leash over to my husband and I and incredibly we were able to walk our dog for the first time in two months. He stayed right at our side and since that day, we’ve enjoyed many long walks together.
Sandy has a very calm, confident approach, which works wonders building confidence in the dog and owner. I highly recommend him to anyone with behavior issues. He was a pleasure to work with and I would not hesitate to contact him again if other problems develop.
