Congratulations to our January client spotlight, Fitz and Gretel!
We go a long way back with these two! Fitz was one of my very first Delightful Doggies clients, a dog walking/pet sitting client as we used to offer those services in the beginning. Gretel was adopted later, so I’ve known her since she was a puppy.
I hadn’t seen these two for a while until I was asked to do day training with Gretel in November. She struggles with being leash reactive towards other dogs, and she and I did training walks together to work on this problem. In December, Courtney and I started working with both of them as we wanted to help support their very-busy parents and address other problems.
These two have had lots of changes in recent history, including moving to a new neighborhood with more construction and violators of leash laws, and adding a set of human twins to their family! We have been working a lot with not only having less stressful walks, but learning how to be calmer in the home. Gretel in particular has done great with the mat work we’ve done with her, and we’ve been working on desensitization and counterconditioning plans to items that cause them to bark. And we LOVE having the best fun with them–they are very sweet and sensitive pups!
Fitz and Gretel are blessed to have parents who love them dearly and are dedicated to their well-being and happiness. We are doubly blessed to get to work with all of them, and I cannot think of a more worthy client spotlight to kick off 2017.
Thank you for entrusting us with your training needs!
