Following are extracts from some of the many testimonials I have received.
Alessina has made a big difference in our family – training us and our cavoodle, Lottie! From an incredibly helpful phone call when Lottie was 10 weeks old, to our first training session at 14 weeks and then again at 7 months, Alessina continues to provide support, advice and games to help us attune with (and enjoy) our pup. The check ins are so valued too – thanks Alessina!
Alessina showed me how to be more calm in my interactions with Prowler. Her advice and training of me was kept simple and clear, so much easier to remember than lots of detailed instructions. Her written notes reinforced this training. Prowler was a very good boy for his first session and I now feel so much more positive and in control.
Thank you Alessina.
“Hi Alessina, thank you for the training session. We learnt a lot and are looking forward to actioning some new techniques and playing the games with Karma.”
I just want to thank you for your fabulous work helping us to train Retta. You bring a calmness into our house that spreads to us all, humans and dog. You treat Retta as an individual and have an excellent intuition for what will work with our young kelpie cross. It is wonderful to be able to have relaxed walks with our dog. We look forward to practising the many games and training methods that you have taught us.
Thanks, from me and the whole family.
We loved working with Alessina! She has a fantastic ability to read our dog Rosie’s behaviour and has given us the tools and advice to feel confident in training her. Her methods are easy to remember and highly effective and she makes sure that there’s lots of fun involved for both us and our dog! We highly recommend Good Dog Training Tips to anyone looking for successful training that builds a bond with their dog!
Alessina helped us with our puppy from 3 to 6 months. We had not had a family puppy before and she helped us to establish order and harmony in the home.
Alessina listens and takes the time to work through what is happening at home and the application of training in your environment, versus just theoretical advice.
This was a great help with not only general commands and obedience but also with other things including toilet training, barking, chewing, sleeping..!
We are thankful for her guidance and support!
Alessina is very good at what she does. We have a nearly 2 year old Labrador with some behavioural issues – mainly guarding and barking at home at the gate and when out for a walk towards other dogs, also jumping up on benches.
The way that Alessina teaches is very simple to understand and it was a great opportunity for me to brush up on some rules that I needed to put in place for our dog.
The teaching is very comprehensive and our session covered all issues that we had problems with. I am now confident that what we will put in place will work very well.
2 weeks on from our meeting and I am already seeing beneficial changes in my dog’s behaviour with no stress caused to our dog. He is learning and accepting the new rules with no problems.
I am very happy to recommend Alessina to anyone who has a dog with any issues. She is very friendly, down to earth and extremely helpful. Her methods make sense and are kind to the dog.
Thanks for today, I got heaps out of it!
Just letting you know…that after our lesson with you…we have had a really good two weeks with Dusty! He is walking well and jumping less. Yay!"
"Thank you so much! We will definitely be studying your notes and work on our pups. We really enjoyed the session and love your philosophy around dog training."
"Thank you Alessina for your work in assisting our family with our 1 year old Cavoodle, Reggie. We really appreciated your professional and kind manner and all the knowledge and tips your shared with us. As a result, we now have a much calmer and more settled Reggie, and we have strategies to use as we need in the future. We really benefitted from your visits to our home."
"We have seen a change in Paddy which is great. It's all about being persistent with him… we really appreciate your time and will recommend you where we can and also keep you in mind for the future"
Thank you so much for teaching me how to stop my dog barking at the window. I also really appreciate you helping me understand that I need to start using hand signals with my dog as he is getting old and a little deaf.
Please come back to Japan and help me and my dog some more! Many thanks!!!!
A thousand thanks for helping me with my two dogs. I must admit, I was a bit curious about your good doooog/good girrrrl
technique. But, I must admit also, it made a big, big difference in the attitude of my two pooches!!! So once again, thank you very much for a job well done, Gooood Girl, Alessina!!!
LONG DISTANCE TELEPHONE TRAINING
Thank you so much for your assistance over the phone with Odie’s bathroom habits…the instructions were easy to follow and very clear…amazing how dog training can be done at a distance.
The modulated voice commands really work like a charm, as the neighbours could hear me chanting…’GOOD BOY GOOD BOY’…etc. each day. He really took notice of the positive reinforcement of the voice and happily went outside to do his business. After a week or two I didn’t even need to follow him. Just send him out with the GOOD BOY instruction.
