Anthony from Calm Energy Dog Training arrived for the first session with Cara. Within the first 5 minutes, he was able to tell me what I was doing wrong with Cara. He corrected the collar I was using that was making Cara uncomfortable. Then, he told me the right way to sit with her, walk her and establish relationship with her.
We walked Cara to the doggie run on 4th Avenue. During the walk, Anthony corrected Cara’s fear of cars by tightly holding on to her and making her experience each car passing so that Cara understands that these cars just pass by and not threatening. He taught me how to walk Cara all around the doggie run so that she will become bolder.
In a mere two hours, he made me confident being with Cara. We taught her commands such as “go to your place”, “sit” and “lay down”. But, most of all he made her confident in her environment.
