Most little dogs seem to have an attitude problem, or big-dog syndrome, where they thing they're bigger than they are. Our dog Lola was no different...


Shannon taught us various techniques to help our disobedient dog become a more delightful dog in the Novice Level obedience training course. Lola, our "Jug" (Jack Russell/Pug cross), still has some work to do, and with Shannon's help through the levels I know she will continue to excel.

I would also like to say that the training method of positive (treats and praise) and negative (correction) seemed to have a real impact on Lola's progress. Thank you, Shannon, for all your hard work with Lola - we can not wait to work with you again!

Little Lola

Thank you for your great comments, Tanya. It sounds like Lola is well on her way to becoming a wonderful family pet, as opposed to the "annoying dog". By the way, her heeling looks great in the picture!
