We had no trouble following the techniques and the reasons behind them. We were very surprised at how our dogs responded. Later in the evening, they were continuing to respond and were behaving better than they have in months. We were feeling pretty hopeless that we could get our dogs' aggression and bad behavior under control. Kurt showed us right away that there is hope. I was glad that he was kind and gentle as we have a fearful dog, and I was surprised the dogs responded so well. It was interesting learning these techniques and fun working with the dogs without them yanking us around. We finally felt we were doing something right. I think if it works with our three stubborn dogs it should work with anyone will to put the time into it.
