If I could give Bonnie ten stars it still would not be enough! She is phenomenal. Our puppy, Ollie, was 4 1/2 months old when we first contacted Bonnie. Ollie is a golden retriever, and even at that young age, very strong, We were having a terrible time walking him. He would pull so hard we could not manage him, stop in the middle of the street and refuse to move, stop at neighbors houses where he liked to play with other dogs and refuse to leave etc. It got to the point that we would have to pick him up and carry him. I did not even feel I could safely walk him alone. Ollie was also exhibiting behaviors such as running through the front door when it was opened, jumping on people, counter surfing and attempting to steal food. He clearly had the idea he was in charge. The first thing Bonnie did was educate us regarding Ollie's transition from his mother and littermates to our home, and how this influences a puppy's behavior. She gave us exercises and strategies to implement that were easy to understand and follow. Bonnie provided us with an appropriate harness and other tools to utilize during our training sessions with Ollie. To say Bonnie is a miracle worker is not an overstatement. Ollie is like a whole new dog! That very first night we took him for a long walk and he stayed right by our sides, at our pace, with no pulling or stopping ( and no need to pick him up!) We are now able to enjoy our time together, and Ollie seems more secure with his place in the middle of the pack. We cannot recommend Bonnie highly enough!
