Two months after my dog has been home from doggy boot camp. I don't have any problems barking like I had before or being aggressive in the house or in front of the house. I don't even have any problems with her being aggressive in the car anymore. Also she's not aggressive with me personally.
We are thankful everyday for our decision to work with Leonard. Our French Bulldog Yoshi is doing so great. We are able to see light at the end of the tunnel with a dog that listens to us. I cannot say enough of the life change that we are experiencing in our lives through the work with Leonard.
Leonard is a great trainer who really knows what he is doing. I'm so glad my boyfriend and I decided to take our rescue pup to training. Even though our puppy is technically a senior dog Leonard was still willing to train him.
We are now about a month out after she finished bootcamp and she is a truly changed dog! Leonard not only gave her the confidence to handle her anxiety, but also taught her how to walk away when she is around something she doesn't like (e.g. new people, loud noises, the Roomba, etc...).
I brought my 9-yr old, lab-mix rescue to Leonard for consultation prior to boot camp. Within the first 15 min of the visit, I could already see my dog transforming into a dog that I had not previously experienced.
I had the best experience with Leonard. He was professional, to the point, and kind. Leonard is a master of his profession and changed the way I now see my dog (for the better) and the respect and bond that I have with my dog.
Elliott spent 3 weeks with Leonard and we met up with him during and after that time to review skills. Now Elliott can easily walk by other dogs on a leash without reacting. He is also much better behaved at home because we have better routines with him.
My fiancé and I just finished our two hour consultation with Leonard and our two dogs. It may have been the most constructive 2 hours we've spent with our dogs since we've had them. As a matter of fact, it DEFINITELY was. We are confident that those two hours will change our relationship with our dogs forever.
Leonard's training focuses on changes in both the dog and the owner focusing on fostering a trusting relationship between both. In order to change bad habits you need someone who is finely attuned to behavioral signs like Leonard. He picked up on things that we would have never been able to figure out ourselves and was able to give us concrete advice and training on how to fix the problems.
