I do not even know where to begin. I am so truly thankful for both Alex and Dave at Dog Behavior Rehab and the wonderful staff at the Dog House Inn.
My husband and I rescued a dog that we had no real history on about three months ago. He is a 5 year old Cane Corso named Monty with what appeared to be serious leash aggression issues and major anxiety. Its like that old saying goes, you can’t help who you fall in love with and although Monty has is issues he is impossible not to love and is now part of this family.
After discovering the aggression I called at least a dozen different trainers. Most of them said the same thing, they wanted to shock collar monty or “reboot” him so to speak and most of them wanted him to be boarded with them overnight for at least three to four weeks. Although I do not know a lot about dog training, I knew one thing was for sure that is not what I wanted for this dog.
As we were getting close to the end of our rope my husband found Alex. He was so impressed with him on the phone that we immediately went to meet with them the next day. Dave was so down to earth and I knew instantly I wanted them training my dog. We were able to drop Monty off every day and pick him up every night. We would get daily texts, videos and picture updates that further proved we had made the right decision.
Alex is unbelievably professional and the bonus to his dedicated training is that I can really tell he cares for my dog as much as me and wants to see the end results as much as we do. He has worked with us as well as Monty and we have really made some amazing progress.
As someone who has never trusted anyone with my dogs I am so happy to say I would highly recommend Dog Behavior Rehab. I am so happy to know I have two amazing trainers that I can learn from to be a better dog owner to the amazing dogs in my life.
