Hi James. My daughter said I should tell you that the viral warts in Echo’s mouth significantly decreased in size since she has been on the raw diet. The day I picked it up from you guys they were growing in quantity and size. They were getting so big one was hanging out of her mouth at all times and her breath was terrible. Yesterday we noticed a significant difference in her breath and the warts have almost cleared up completely. It’s only been about 10 days. Also, Echo did great on Halloween with the trick or treaters coming to the door. She sat nicely by the door observing each time. She listens well “most”of the time on the first command. We still have trouble with her when it comes to food. She’ll jump on a counter or try to steal from the trash if our backs are turned. We’ve been keeping her away from other dogs since the warts were getting so crazy, so I’m sure we’ll have to do some work there as well. Thanks for the “tools” you taught us and the raw food resource.
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!
When I began looking for a dog trainer, I was having difficulty finding one because of my disability. Going to a facility was not an option, so when Who's Walking Who? offered a demonstration and classes in my home, I jumped at the chance. I couldn't believe the difference in my dog from just the demonstration.
We adopted our female yellow lab, Sunny, when she was almost 3 years old. She had been feasting off of the avocados that would fall from a tree in her previous owner's backyard. There is no easy way to put this - she was OBESE. The vet said she needed to lose 15 lbs, easily. We tried every "diet" dog food out there...we did portion control, exercise regimens...you name it. Nothing worked. Then I remembered James...who had trained my mom's dog down in San Diego - and the food he fed his dogs. I called him up - and the rest is history. I just took Sunny to her annual check-up...she has lost 12 lbs in 12 months (a very safe pace)...and is the 'poster dog' for good health. The vet wanted to know our secret...she even marveled at the the lack of tartar buildup on Sunny's teeth, the shiny condition of her coat, and the absence of what were once chronic ear infections. On another equally important note - James and Allison provide the BEST customer service of any company in any industry I have ever dealt with. They are so friendly, helpful, and accessible. I cannot say enough good things all around!
The training we received has turned our out-of-control puppy into a wonder dog. Had it not been for your expertise and patience, I don't know if we would have been able to keep him. Thanks to you, it is impossible to imagine him NOT being here.
Maya was only 8 wks old when we got her. She was shy, very distant and didn't listen to a word we said. We couldn't even get her to come when we called her name! She would just stare at us with complete disregard and continue about her business. Then we called James and everything changed. Since then she's become part of the family. We take her everywhere with us and wherever we go people are always so impressed on how well-behaved and responsive she is. We even put on mini-demos for them! The people love it and Maya loves showing off! The relationship and bond we've developed with our puppy through Who's Walking Who? Dog Training is immeasurable. We can't thank you enough for helping us!
James was truly understanding of my tight schedule and reluctance that any training would work on my out-of-control Pug, Kevin. Despite my reluctance, I had him over for a home demonstration. I was completely blown away! My incorrigible dog listened to orders for the first time! It was absolutely unbelievable. Today, my little Kevin is well-behaved and has stopped all the barking, chewing and biting that was destroying my life (and my furniture!). I cannot thank him enough.
We were ready to take our dog, Grey, to the pound. He was constantly whining, digging, and disobeying our commands. Calling Who's Walking Who? saved Grey from the pound. The results from our new training techniques were instant. Now Grey is a new dog and much happier now that we know how to communicate with him. I can't believe we were almost ready to get rid of him.
