The training works!

I took my two 7 month old German shepherd puppies in to see the trainers at Metropawlitan Dog in October because they had started to be pretty aggressive to each other, and one of them was aggressive with other dogs too. Megan said she thought we should put the boys in the program where they stay with the trainers for 4 weeks since the aggression was pretty bad and was starting to show up with people too. It was tough to leave my babies for that long, but in the end I realized that it needed to be done before something really awful happened, since they were getting too out of control for me and my daughter to handle. I called almost every day to check on the boys (and probably annoyed the trainers too!) but they always made the time to talk to me and never seemed too busy. I guess they understand that my dogs are like my kids! In the middle of all this I found out I had to move, so Megan offered to keep the boys there as long as we needed to get moved and settled. That was such a relief and so nice of her! They ended up staying close to 6 weeks there before we were able to pick them up, and they had gotten so big! I am so happy with the training that the time they were gone was so worth it. They can sleep together in the same crate now, eat at the same time in the same room together, play with toys together, and there’s no more of the nasty fights that used to happen. They also used to pull me and my daughter down the street to get to other dogs and now they walk so nice right by our sides. The groomer did a really good job on them too before they sent them home to us, so I would definitely use him again for grooming. Megan helped with the questions I had once I got the boys home and really seems to understand dogs. If you need training help, I say call Metropawlitan Dog!
