When I first emailed Michael my 5 month old GSD would bark excessively at other dogs and strangers while on leash and in confined areas (vet room for example). It made going on a simple walk challenging. With his guidance and training, I started to realize the incredible importance of listening to my dogs behaviors before his barking initiated, being prepared (positive reinforcement-wise with lots of treats and clicking!), and being aware of my environment in any given situation. Michael has helped guide my timing with rewarding behavior, helped me reach a place where I have a pup that gives me a whole bunch of eye contact on walks, and helped us grow incredibly over the last month. We have even recently received a few compliments on how his barking is improving and how he is behaving. Both Blue and I appreciate everything we have learned!!
