Jacque & Wilbur
We have a one year old pitbull named Wilbur. When we first got him he was awesome: he loved all people, loved to meet other dogs, and was just generally a goofy, fun dog.
After a few months we started noticing a difference in him, especially when he was on a leash. He started to be reactive towards other dogs of all shapes and sizes and it was becoming worrisome. He was also terrible on our walks, he was overall distracted and pulled constantly on the leash (and he's a super strong dude).
Beyond that, we had owned an aggressive dog prior to Wilburo so as soon as Wilbur showed signs of concern we immediately got nervous.
"Andrew Warner Dog Training is for real. I would recommend him to anyone and in fact wish everyone would call him--all dogs deserve his help to be their happiest."
We were given Andrew's name from a friend and gave him a call. I cannot tell you how thankful we are to have done that.
Andrew met me and Wilbur on a freezing cold day to walk and hear our concerns. During the walk he took Wilbur's leash and by the end of the walk I already had a different dog. Andrew worked with Wilbur with an energy that is very transformative. Wilbur instantly responded to Andrew and I could almost see Wilbur's relief to have some help. Not only that, Andrew was able to explain how Wilbur was feeling and why he was doing the things he was. Andrew also explained how the things I was doing were affecting Wilbur. I felt much more in tune with my dog after just an hour.
I met with Andrew a few more times and each time had the same results. He helped us with crate training, appropriate play for Wilbur, off-leash training, teaching Wilbur to be calm, and more. Wilbur responded to every session with more relief and has continued to improve. Andrew gave me homework after our sessions and he also was available for and willing to take questions in between our sessions. He checked in with us to make sure we were on track and his genuine desire to help our dog was very clear.
Andrew also helped us as dog owners feel more confident and happy. I no longer worry if Wilbur has a reactive moment because Andrew gave me the tools and coaching I needed to handle it and to be able to help Wilbur myself. We are constantly improving and our goal for Wilbur to be a model pitbull is very reachable!
