I am the luckiest girl around! Last spring I got to attend a training seminar with Mom with Brenda Aloff. It was really hard because I had to focus even when other dogs were there (I don't like other dogs if I'm leashed...), but Mom learned lots about helping me get better. We're closer than ever!
Mom here; the seminar was an incredible experience for me. Being a pet owner, and not a trainer, I didn't know if I should attend, but my friend convinced me to go. It was amazing. Brenda Aloff's protocol is exactly what I've been looking for. Positive training but with corrections when needed. By corrections, I don't mean physically hitting or anything; a correction can be as simple as walking into a dogs' space. I was tired of trying to get results with Positive Reinforcement only; sometimes I just wanted to say "Hey, smarten up doggies, you know better!". The Get Connected Protocol is great and I'm still learning about it, but am still very excited to be using it. The main objective is to have a better connection with your dog, teach them to focus on you and that they can trust you 100%. This is going to help with all our dogs: Jagger with his nervousness, Layla with her reactivity and Zeppelin with his anxiety. :)
