So happy I found Caroline when I did! We had just moved shortly after adopting a 1.5 year old GSD mix from the shelter and the second "home" sent her into a downward spin. She was barking so furiously all day long that i had received numerous neighbor complaints and one official nose complaint (for barking) from management. To top it off, she became very destructive which added to the stress of the barking. I tried EVERYTHING, had to leave work on several occasions, take days off, etc in hopes to not get an additional complaint and get kicked out of my new apartment after 2 weeks of living there. I tried doggy day care but she was too aggressive, store bought calming aids, vet prescribed anxiety meds, bark collars, extra exercise, chews/toys/puzzles... AND NOTHING WORKED. I almost thought I would either get kicked out of my new home and the idea of possibly having to re-home her crossed my mind for a split second as well. I came across the Lupa K9 website and desperately wrote a "please help me email" to which I received a response that very same night. We were able to get an appointment later that week where we discussed a training game plan and future goals. Caroline shared some tricks with me, that with practice of a few days, made the barking come to a complete halt. After just the first session my dog was not only better behaved, we had crate/anti barking homework, and there was plans to actually move forward in polishing up manners, obedience, and even off leash and recall.
My GSD mix now successfully plays off leash, is able to control herself on leash after a lot of impulse control training to not lunge at other dogs, loves her crate and does not bark anymore. She now even travels and flies on airplanes with me and is continuing to be a rockstar. The transformation Caroline has helped us achieve is much more than I could have ever hoped for when I originally had gotten in contact with her. I gladly recommend her to friends and strangers who comment on how well behaved my dog is and am so thankful for the things she has been able to teach me and my dog through our training journey.
