Within just a few lessons, Japhy's
recall was almost perfect, regardless of the situation.
And even better, Terry taught me how to read Japhy's body
language by describing what he was doing as he interacted
with her own dogs. As soon as I knew what to look for,
the seemingly random dog aggression was easy to predict,
and, with a perfect recall, easy to avoid. Not only was
I removing Japhy from any situation that might become
aggressive, I was also teaching him what behaviors were
unacceptable at the dog park. In the six months since
I started working with Terry, I haven't had a single problem
off-leash. Japhy runs off-leash every day, plays and socializes
normally with other dogs, and is often the best-behaved
dog in the park.
