Alice leaves “Wanderland,” and joins the ranks of the secure and confident…. Alice was a stray we adopted from the humane society. She was a willful 2 year- old who would run out of the door at any opportunity and not come back on any command. After a year of trying to train her, Lauren was recommended to us. Her careful assessment and insight identified Alice’s innate insecurity coupled with a willfulness that made her nearly impossible to train initially without a stimulus collar. With detailed instruction on behavior training, use of rewards (treats and affection), and use of stimulus as needed to get Alice’s attention and establish who is in charge, we were able to have a happier more obedient pup who posed without leash for the photo below (front yard next to the street, no fence!).
