Billy and Stan Cook
Ali was recommended by another behaviourist as we had big problems with our border terriers. The oldest one Bill had become very reactive to other dogs after an extended stay at the vets. The younger one Stan had been badly attacked on the lead in the park so was a snarling, snapping ball of angst. Put them together and it was violent reactivity. We had tried to take on suggestions from dog trainers and it was getting worse. I had spent hours trawling the internet finding different ideas but again wondering if we were making it worse.
Ali was totally amazing and advised us on how to read certain situations and our dogs. Her philosophy is simple but the complexity comes from reading the dog's behaviour and knowing how to respond. I have been seeing Ali periodically throughout the past year and they have gone from snarling, reactive, over-aroused anxious pups to being able to walk through a dog-filled area looking at other dogs without reacting.
Ali has truly saved our boys and to see them so much calmer and happier with an air of ' oh there's a dog... so what...' makes me so happy. Thank you for everything.
