Rhonda has shown us a completely different way to interact with our very crazy, highly adrenalized dog, Coco. I adopted her as a puppy so I know she has always had behavior issues. We went to two series of puppy trainings, obedience training & finally as a last resort, a two week long boot camp. She was VERY mouthy, sassy, aggressive, prey driven (she is part hound) and totally disinterested in living in our environment under anything but her rules. At the time, we were in Atlanta and she always got along with other dogs.
When we moved to Vermont, her dynamic totally changed where she was calmer around people but became very dog aggressive. I videoed some of her behavior for the vet and he said that he had never seen anything like it so, she was put on clomipramine. Even though I had spent a lot of money on previous training, we decided that we wanted to give it one more try. I interviewed a number of trainers but when I talked to Rhonda, I knew we had our fit. Her methods teach a dog how to self regulate their emotions so that they can be relaxed in any environment.
After just a few sessions with Rhonda we started to see dramatic improvements in Coco’s behavior. With a few simple techniques that Rhonda taught us we are now able to interact in our neighborhood with much greater ease and comfort. We are grateful for Rhonda’s support and for the dramatic improvements we are seeing in Coco as a result. Thank you, Rhonda!
