I will say that contacting them initially was a little difficult. The contact form kept giving me an error but I was really glad when I saw that you can text their number!
!!!Don’t give up contacting them!!!
I scheduled a consultation, paid through venmo, and was connected with Dakota. We have two dogs; Berkeley was rescued from a neglectful home about a month ago and JackJack is my dog that’s spent the last year and a half in Philly that I picked up 2 weeks ago. Introducing the two of them; Berkeley attacked JackJack and we quickly realized she gained a lot more negative behavioral issues than we thought. Fast forward 2 weeks, we have a tall gate separating the house to keep the two apart but within eye/sniff sight and we were having mental breakdowns basically every night. People kept telling us that it could take weeks/months for them to be civil but it felt like there was no progress at all.
Then Dakota and Jordan showed up for the evaluation. Number 1 tip if you get Dakota, bring a pen and paper because the dude can talk lol Our lives have changed dramatically and it’s only been a day! They suggested we take the dogs for a walk, so we did but under their supervision. It was the first time the dogs were near each other without a safety net between them. We were scared but Dakota acted like it was a regular Tuesday afternoon. I’m happy to report that Berkeley didn’t attack JackJack! She wanted to at least once but Dakota was able to distract her before her thought of murder turned into a plan of attack.
Jordan was amazing as well and her calm demeanor helped Berkeley to quickly trust/engage with her. She also gave awesome recommendations for diets and I want to use her help to determine a good meal plan for the pups.
We took their advice (what to change around the house/how to get the dogs to respond to us) and as I’m writing this, my partner has Berkeley in her lap, JackJack laying down next to her, we can go about our day like everything is normal, and I am eternally grateful!
Seriously amazing! I thought we had to board and train her because we were so exhausted. Now I feel like we don’t have to and we will definitely use them for training sessions! Read more
