I’ve been trying to manage my Chihuahua’s interactions with new people for eleven years. Darwin’s behavior was quite aggressive to new people and dogs. This is especially true when entering his personal space. I tried various trainers who told me he was protecting me, and also tried a few books advocating to be the alpha – none of this worked. Then came Lindsey; she immediately recognized that my dog was completely terrified. She explained all the signs that led her to this conclusion. Knowing this changed my whole dynamic with Darwin. Punishment was replaced with compassion and a whole new set of tools Lindsey cued me into. My entire relationship with my dog has changed, and we are closer than ever. I owe all of this to Lindsey!
“I have been so grateful to have benefited from Lindsey’s teaching and training for several years, and in many different situations. Her classes have been rich in knowledge, with a great sense of fun, along with a positive approach-with people and dogs! Her high level of experience in training, and her remarkable insight into dog behavior, are rare gifts. She has solved problems for me with foster dogs, and my own dogs, when other trainers and their methods didn’t help. She is well versed in all aspects of training and behavior, certified, and is a trainer/teacher with real solutions. She works using kind perceptive understanding, and strategies/techniques that are grounded in science.”
