Our new and improved Gus!

I don't pull on my walks anymore!
Just when we thought there was no hope for our 3 year old black lab named Gus, we met Shannon!
Gus had a couple of issues that we honestly thought we would always have to just live with. He was a big barker and puller on the leash which made it very embarrassing to take him out in public.
Shannon told me that Gus would stop barking within 5 minutes of being in her training class. I really didn't believe her but thought it was worth a shot. Sure enough we arrived at the hall and she showed me what to do when he barked and IT WORKED!
He was also one of those dogs that took us for a walk, which unfortunately resulted in him not getting the exercise he truly needed. After a couple of classes Gus was walking nicely NEXT to me. He now walks everyday and is a joy to walk.
Thank you Shannon for all your help with Gus - you are an awesome trainer and you really know your stuff!
