"I have a 5 year old German shepherd. She is about 95 pounds, very loving towards my wife and I, but is very, very uncontroll..."
"I have a 5 year old German shepherd. She is about 95 pounds, very loving towards my wife and I, but is very, very uncontrolled. We took her to another trainer in town. After six weeks of training there, Daisy, the GSD still didn't obey us. Daisy is extremely aggressive towards other dogs, barks at anyone that comes near me, and just makes walking her a nightmare. Daisy learned to break through her invisible fence and thus, left our yard a few times and caused a couple of complaints from our neighbors. She also attacked and killed a baby deer in our neighbors yard. We had to find a way to control this dog.
After an adoption fell through, we were stuck with this GSD. Out of desperation, I called Kranky K9. I was very skeptical. After our first go around with training was complete failure, I didn't think anybody could turn this dog around. I was afraid that since she can break her invisible fence, she may attack a neighbors dog and I would have to put her down.
Fast forward a few months. I can't believe it! Bo Harrison has changed our dog. Daisy is so well behaved. Also, our fears that Kranky K9 would "break her spirit" were completely unfounded. Daisy loves her new life. I walk her everyday off leash. We have come across rabbits, dear, other dogs, and always, without hesitation, Daisy will recall right to my side. People always compliment us on how well behaved our GSD is. Last week, I came across another couple walking an out-of-control dog. The man had to drag the dog away and hold him down. Daisy....nothing. She didn't care. She was more interested in us than the other dog. When I say is more happy, well, that means she can run a little in front of me during walks and sniff things and basically be a dog. That is so much more fun for her than being on a short leash prior to this training. If I need her to come to me, I simply call her and she returns. If I need to step things up a bit, I just "buzz" her. Daisy wears a collar that vibrates when I "buzz" her. No pain, but she responds!
As a final test, I had Daisy not chase a garbage truck. She left the FEDEX guy alone. She even watched the mail truck stop in front of our house w/o losing her mind.
Thanks you, thank you, thank you Kranky K9. Now, walking Daisy is fun and relaxing, no more stress."
