Dog Training Review by Kara H.

Coco was Fear-Aggressive

Testimonial by Kara H for Coco

My husband and I had rescued a pit bull puppy that had been abandoned. She had absolutely no human interaction. She never had been on a leash nor had a dog collar on ever. Her name is Coco. We did not know what to do with her. We were not going to allow her to go to the dog pound. They would instantly euthanize her because of her out-of-control behavior. I was recommended to Happy Dog Training by my sister, who has had numerous dogs trained by Ralf. We sent the sweet little puppy pit bull Coco to Happy Dog Training for a three-month training program.

Unfortunately, during the training, the COVID-19 pandemic hit the USA. As a result, Ralf had to keep her for a few more weeks due to COVID. During her stay and training sessions for those months, she was like a new dog. He did miracles for this dog. When we first rescued this puppy pit bull, we did not think she would have a chance. The behavioral issue seemed like there was no chance. She had such bad abandonment issues, to where she would jump out of control and fight other dogs. When we would try to take her on a walk, she would just rip us down the street.

Coco Became A Great Dog

During her four-month stay with Ralf, she became a completely new dog. She stopped jumping like a crazy dog. Now walks on a leash without ripping you down the street and obeys all commands. As I said, I thought there was no hope for this dog. If anybody reads this post and you have a dog that has any kind of behavioral issues, do not give up, take the dog to Happy Dog Training. Ralf is the dog whisperer to our family and me. He treated our dog so wonderfully. He is a very knowledgeable, professional dog trainer. When the time comes for us to get another dog, we will for sure be taking the new dog to Ralf as well. I definitely will give Happy Dog Training 10 stars.
