Simply put, Anthony from Calm Energy Dog training is great. I was having many issues with my rescue beagle/boxer, Buttercup, including separation anxiety, dog aggression, fear and leash pulling. After trying to fix these issues on my own, and failing, I contacted Calm Energy. Anthony came over and gave my husband and me easy to use everyday tools to help us with Buttercup.
He stayed as long as we needed him to (over 2 hours) answered all our questions and concerns (no matter how silly they seemed) and most importantly made training fun for Buttercup. After he left I actually felt for the first time that maybe I could do this after all. Buttercup has a long way to go, but I know if I apply the tools I got from Anthony, she will get there.
Also I wanted to add he is always available via email and usually replies quickly, which is nice, especially for a nervous first time rescue owner like myself.
My dog hasn’t had a training lesson from Anthony in over a year, we moved and she was reverting back to her old ways. We were also having issues with local dogs (and their owners) being overly aggressive. I needed advice so I decided it couldn’t hurt to email Anthony my concerns. He not only replied to me quickly and gave me a few pointers, but he did so without trying to get me to buy more sessions with him.
You can tell he just cares about his clients, both human and dog.
