MY OBEDIENT DOG Reviews (10)
Thanks to Sho, we have a very well-trained, well-mannered and happy dog. Dalmatians are a very high-energy breed and require a lot of exercise and mental stimulation (Sho calls our dog "the Ferarri of dogs", no wonder!). She has also trained our dog to use the treadmill in complementing the daily walking, which never seems to be enough for a Dalmatian. We kept going back to Sho for more training and for boarding and we will keep doing so, from time to time, as we continue to learn new things and -sometimes- to correct any unwanted behaviours. Sho is absolutely amazing for us and we are very grateful to her for all her help throughout the last four years. We fully trust her with our dog and we recommend her to other dog owners. We are also happy that our dog has been able to assist Sho in helping out a client to heal from fear of dogs - this was only possible due to the excellent training our dog has received from his beloved trainer!
Monica & Family.
First call I made when I got home was to Sho. It was by then 7 pm on a Sunday night and I expected to leave a message but to my surprise, Sho answered and took the time to question me on Blue's behaviours and started to give us some tips and do's and don't' to ensure we would be successful in integrating Blue in our family.
Sho then came for the first appointment to meet us and Blue, and assessed Blue. Right from the start, it was very noticeable that she knew what she was doing as Blue responded to her instantly. Blue is a big dog (greyhound,Great Dane, retriever mix). He had spent two months in a crate at the shelter so he had anxiety issues, and was pulling and barking on walks. Sho recommended treadmill training to enabled Blue to get rid of his built up energy. She trained him on the treadmill and this has proven to be extremely helpful.
Sho has worked with us and Blue as well as with Blue on his own. I can say that Blue is now a well balanced dog because of the work she did with him and us. Blue loves spending time at Sho's as he can socialize with the other dogs of her pack. This is actually what helped him overcome his anxiety when he was seeing our dogs on walks. As Sho is offering a boarding service, Blue always goes there when we have to go away which is extremely convenient and reassuring as we know he is well taken care of, and happy!
Sho was instrumental in making sure Blue's integration to our family was a success. She was there when we introduce Blue to my son's girlfriend dog Bella (dominant husky). As the introduction was done properly these two dogs are getting along amazingly. This was extremely important for us.
Blue went from being the over excited barking and jumping dog from the shelter to a gentleman. Blue is now calm, and gentle. Shophisticated even! Rarely barks other than to notify us there is someone approaching the house(which is a good thing). We absolutely love him and we are very happy we decided to adopt him regardless of his behaviour issues at the time.
We have been using Sho's services regularly since we got Blue and I couldn't thank her enough for everything she did for us and Blue.
We were referred to Sho through a close friend who had also used her services and had great success with her dog.
when Sho began working with us, she helped address the behavior and showed us step by step of how to take control of our dog .
cooper now follows us on a loose leash and our walks are so much more enjoyable. thanks for all your help Sho. Mandy and Rob
Thanks Sho for all your help
She pushes the idea of being the "pack leader" as if she's cesar milan and to cure my uneasiness, a quick google search confirmed that these methods are long out of date and counteract with all available scientific studies.
I've instead began working with a positive reinforcement trainer who is helping me to train my dog what i want her to do using rewards instead of punishing her for making mistakes.
I guess like everything else, you need to do your research before jumping into anything. I just wish Sho had.

Our classes and the training methods at My Obedient Dog have made a big difference. Our Dog is very well behaved now and really pays attention to our commands. It has allowed us to walk her with confidence and no stress when meeting other dogs!
