We contacted Michael for help with Finn, our very big puppy. He was extremely excitable and overly friendly with guests and new people. His playtime with us was not enjoyable because he would become too excited and jump on us aggressively, nip at us too hard and run uncontrollably. I was actually very discouraged about the situation.
Michael helped us all to calm down and learn some methods to divert the unwanted behavior. I was able to learn to recognize when he was building up to a meltdown and stop it with an enjoyable training session. He began to enjoy training more than the bad “zooming” behavior.
We are still working on helping him stay relaxed around guests but the transformation has been amazing. He is still excited and super friendly, but not out of control, and everyone can enjoy the sweet, loving, funny boy he is!
