SEPARATION ANXIETY … working through it.
August 17, 2017
To Jeff, his wife and to everyone involved at Solid K9 Training, THANK YOU so much for helping us owners and our dogs! A quote comes to mind when I think of you all. “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” by Margaret Mead. Your heartfelt DEDICATION, FANTASTIC VIDEO’S and sharing your KNOWLEDGE so freely to us out here is already creating miracles for Buddy and bringing sanity back to me.
Buddy’s separation anxiety had put our world into COMPLETE chaos this last 4 months. THANKFULLY, I FOUND YOU ON UTUBE!! In less than TWO WEEKS of using your video’s, I’ve worked diligently with Buddy on the PLACE and DOWN command, using a crate and a camera to monitor him.
Buddy is LEARNING TO BE STILL AND CALM when I am home and I cannot thank you enough for enlightening not just me but the world on what is needed. I put him in PLACE today, went outside for 20 minutes, monitored him with the camera and he STAYED IN PLACE and NO BARKING!!! My heart EXPLODED with joy! It feels amazing to watch him so peaceful staying in his PLACE and not following me around our home like a shadow stressed anymore!! He will occasionally break his PLACE but he is getting the word NO and repositioning himself which is great. I feel the CALMNESS IN OUR HOME and I see how much more RELAXED Buddy is.
I am so looking forward to the day I can leave our home with him peaceful and quiet and I can have a life too LOL. We are both are on a learning curve and have lots to do but with your video’s and guidance, I KNOW we can BEAT THIS!!! Simply put … YOUR AWESOME!!
