The saga of Sammy Golden Retriever continues…

The saga of Sammy continues… When our well-trained (thanks to you, Ami) darling boy Sammy turned about 16 months, he started to show some aggression towards other dogs (not humans, due to your training and our concern for how wary he was towards strangers, we did everything you suggested to successfully prevent that).

Initially it was just when the neighbor dog Maggie would come over and steal Sammy’s bones or treats. By the age of 18 months, however, this was becoming a pattern, whether on a walk around the neighborhood or at the dog park.

When Sammy became aggressive with some of the dogs he used to say hi to on walks (Bailey and Maxie), we called you, Ami, to ask for advice. You are an amazing woman, and truly understand dogs and their behavior.

You took a tremendous amount of time to listen to all of Sammy’s behavioral traits, his interactions with his sister Banshee, when the infractions occurred, and specific details about the negative interactions and the dogs they occurred with.

You cared, you paid attention to details, and were so helpful! You gave us a number of suggestions that we are eager to implement, but I am positive will work (they just make sense for who Sammy, Banshee, and  who we are and our lifestyles). You were kind towards our attempts to make this work, complimentary of our work to date with Sammy, and you were proactive in thinking of other situations in which we might have problems.

You were also effective in addressing some of the behaviors that I was subconsciously engaging in that were compounding the situation. Sammy and Banshee love their walks and trips to the park (and we love taking them) and your efforts are invaluable to ensuring this continues.

We absolutely cannot thank you enough, Ami, for everything you have done for us and Sammy and Banshee!!!!!

If you are reading this and considering whether to call Ami for advice, sign up for training, or anything else, I can not urge you strongly enough to do so now – you cannot go wrong.
