I have a German Shepherd who is 1 1/2 years old. We were attacked on one of our walks by a stray dog and My dog started to show agressive behavior to other dogs. I have become very skeptical about dog trainers. When my dog was a puppy, I tried training at Pet Smart. This was a total waste of time and money. I tried a very expensive trainer who I didn’t feel I learned much from at all. And I read tons of books and watched hours of Dog Whisperer. I found Caryl Wolff on the internet and liked her website. I decided to try her as a last resort. She is not cheap, but I always feel you get what you pay for and my dog is worth it.
I must admit I had a bit of a closed mind at first since I was warned by friends and family that I might be ripped off. But I must admit that within the first 15 minutes I learned more than I had in all the books I read or all the dog whisperer shows I’ve seen.
Caryl’s techniques made perfect sense to me and I even felt silly that I didn’t figure most of the skills out myself. They are so ” common sense.”
Our first meeting was a private session which was supposed to be 90 minutes long. Caryl actually met with me and my dog for almost 2 hours. She was very detailed and informative and kindly answered all my questions and addressed all my concerns. Caryl’s fee includes along with the private session, 5 group classes. No, my dog isn’t perfect yet, but she has improved. and I’m confident I will be able
to control my dog’s aggressive behavior.
