It was only after my husband suffered a broken ankle that required surgery (pins & plates) & I endured a bruised coccyx that I knew I had to do something with our Leia; a 75lb boxer mix since, sending her to the pound wasnt even an option. Moving from New Orleans where Leia was able to run free in our backyard to an apt complex was a challenge no, a nightmare! The squirrel chasing & her dragging me was unbelievable, our walks were so stressful & intense. I really believed there was no hope. On the 1st visit with Maureen I was amazed at Leia's improvement. Following the homework assignments & follow up visits, 4 in total, I was astonished. Our walks are so enjoyable & for the most part safe. We have come a long way & now focused on other behavioral issues (chewing & stealing) with her & our Chihuahua, Chewie. Maureen is so patient & knowledgeable about what she does. And we thank her & Bark Busters tremendously for the training provided to our family.
