Following are extracts from some of the many testimonials I have received.
We really enjoyed working with you. Before you came, we were getting very concerned about some of Buffy’s (Labradoodle) behavior around the house. We learned some great techniques for settling her down, particularly the ‘drop’ command, which we’ll continue to work on, especially when she’s showing a bit too much interest in visitors! Buffy settles much more quickly now when people visit the house and we’re really pleased we can finally see a way forward with her. She’s a wonderful dog and we were so glad you were able to help us.
I would just like to say firstly, thank you for taking the time to call me before we met, you are the only person that bothered. Also, a huge thank you for what you taught me about dogs. The way they learn, smell and see. My dog Cookie (Maltese x Shih tzu)has turned from a gorgeous scatterbrain to an adorable well mannered young lady. She is much more calm and focused, a real pleasure to have in my life. I had no idea how to train her and you have shown me all the fundamentals of training and have given me the confidence to do that efficiently. With voice commands and not treats you have taught me to be the alpha dog. I would recommend you to anyone that has a dog, be it a puppy or adult, you are a real credit to dog trainers.
Alessina assisted me with behavioural management with my 2 dogs, Russell, a Pug x and Oscar, a Jack Russell. Alessina’s approach was considered and effective. I was impressed how quickly my dogs responded to Alessina’s commands and how easy it was to establish boundaries without the use of treats. I would highly recommend Alessina for her professionalism, knowledge and ability to control dogs with minimal disturbance.
Alessina, I just wanted to write and let you know how impressed we were with the way you trained our Cavoodle, Charlie. Your patience and skill helped us a great deal. He is now a much more obedient and happy dog and life with him has become so much easier. Your style of training with positive reinforcement was a pleasure with immediate returns on our efforts. Again, thank you for all your help.
Alessina’s approach to training is calm and confident and consistent. Her training methods are well explained and easy to apply – she doesn’t just train the dog, she also trains the owner! MyTerrier x dog has become much calmer and responsive following our sessions with Alessina. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her services to others. Thanks for all your help Alessina!
Great training with our rescue, Terrier x dog Poppy. Always patient. Simone and I as dog owners needed more training than Poppy!
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.
