I was referred to James of Who’s Walking Who? by a friend. I had a 3 month old puppy who I was struggling to house train. I haven’t had a puppy in years so I really needed help. The first thing that James did was to recommend a different type of food. He put Wrigley on a raw meat diet which immediately helped our potty training battle by reducing the number of times Wrigley had to go. Let’s just say that for a while, I was convinced the words “puppy” and “poopy” were interchangeable! But James’ raw meat recommendation was spot on. And Wrigley LOVES the food. She does spectacular spins all around the kitchen when I feed her!
So James happily sent me on my way with new food and some basic potty training tips. But Wrigley proved to be a much tougher case. She got to a point where she would go outside and potty and then come right back in the house and leave us little “presents” behind all of the furniture. So I called in the expert, James, again. He came right over to my house and watched how we were interacting with Wrigley. He showed me all of the ways I could train her and one of his suggestions was the Tri-Tronics pet collar. I was a little horrified by the idea of an electrical stimulant but I have to say, it was a much more humane way to train an especially small dog with a very strong will.
With just a couple of lessons with James, Wrigley has become the kind of dog everyone would like to have. She’s happy, obedient, and best of all….she doesn’t leave us “presents” in the house any more.
While the collar and the food have been helpful, it is James’ expertise that has pulled it all together for us. We are happier pet owners and Wrigley is a happier dog. We owe it all to James!
