The Bohnert family from Conroe TX were having problems with their 6 month old Goldendoodle puppy when they signed up for our 3 week board and train program. Max was a typical impulsive puppy with no manners, or focus under distractions. After a few short weeks with us, he was transformed into the sweetest, most well mannered pup around!
Training with us he learned to walk nicely on leash instead of pulling like a sled dog. To sit, down, and come, even with lots of distractions. To not jump on people or bite. Max learned to leave it (especially with food) and wait politely at doors instead of bolting out. We trained him to listen off leash so he could enjoy running and playing with the kids without getting in trouble or taking off. He also learned “place” so he would stay on his bed while the kids were eating, or when people came over. Max is a sweet sweet boy and we’re so happy his family is able to enjoy him more! They said he poses the best for pictures now 🙂
Here’s what they had to say about his training:
“We sent our Goldendoodle, Max, to Amanda after realizing we got in over our heads with training our puppy. Our biggest challenges were pulling on a leash, jumping on people and counters and play biting. The hardest part for me was the anticipation of being away from him for 3 weeks. Everyday Max was gone Amanda sent pictures and text updates with his progress. Also, weekly we received videos of his newly learned manners! I also soon realized that this 3 weeks away was more like sending him to “Doggy Paradise” than training. He got to go on daily hikes and have play dates and learn how to behave in a way that gave him confidence and made people love being around him! We got our sweet Max back yesterday and couldn’t be more impressed. Amanda taught Max to be the family dog we envisioned when we got a puppy! She also worked with us to teach us how to be the dog owners that he needs us to be. I couldn’t be happier and I know that if any challenges arise she will be there to help us anytime!”
If you have a dog like Max, give us a call! We can help you love your dog AND their behavior!
Here is Max’s last training video with us, enjoy 🙂
