My puppy was a handful...
“I hired Clare to help guide our high energy puppy through adolescence. Bula is great fun, and very sweet and loving, but wow was she a handful!
Clare taught us a variety of approaches to calm Bula, help her focus and improve self-control. Clare also taught Bula to walk nicely on a leash, and me how to use a harness so Bula’s neck wouldn’t be strained. Now our outings are much more pleasant than being pulled down the street!
Clare worked with us off and on for two years whenever I’d call with a question or issue. She also continued Bula’s training when we travelled. We are happy to report that Bula has matured into a wonderful adult dog, just as energetic and endearing as ever, but easier and better mannered. Clare’s help was pivotal."
