I Will Forever Be Indebted To “It’s Just a Dog Thing”
“All of their experience, knowledge, patience, natural affinity with dogs & enthusiasm, took Laila(my Boxer) from a disobedient, mischievous, devious, defiant, rebellious & naughty 2 year old dog, to an amazing, cooperative, obedient, family pet. Laila would not respond when called, door dashed, was aggressive towards men & jealous of other dogs. Shawn’s attention to detail ensured that Laila thrived utilizing positive methods to address her negative behaviors. Shawn took the time to make sure our entire household had interaction with her & taught the common language used during the training. Shawn updated me on Laila’s progress with texts/videos often. I highly recommend!” ~Jen Levinson
They board dogs too!
