Well trained beyond our expectations
Our dog Islay (Rhodesian Ridgeback) was growing fast and was very difficult to control, even with conventional training. She pulled on walks, jumped on us and visitors, and was incredibly stressful to manage. After getting her back from the 6 week off-leash program, she has been the same fun, loving dog, only incredibly well trained beyond our expectations. She listens to us, she no longer exhibits unwanted behavior, and trusts that she is safe in our care which we think has made her even more affectionate towards us. Lea and her Smart Dog team made us feel that we could trust them the entire time that Islay was in their care. Lea is incredibly knowledgeable and promptly responded to our questions before, during, and after the training program. If/when we get another dog, we would absolutely send them to Smart Dog; it has been worth every penny and has made dog ownership rewarding and virtually stress-free!
