Now that we have completed the program we would like to express our appreciation.
We were skeptical at the start but we are more than satisfied with all the effort and work you put into helping us better understand our dog’s behavior. And of course, the training we received that showed us how to work with our dog. We learned why our dog behaves the way she does and how we can help her deal with her issues.
We realize that we have a lot more work to do but we are confident with the tools that you provided us, that we will have a more relaxed and happier dog.
We enjoyed the experience and we would highly recommend your services.
All the best,
Cathy and Bob
When we reached out to Sparky we were concerned about the behaviour with our dog might be a danger to others. We tried training collars, taking advice from others, researching on google what to do, but nothing worked. We engaged Sparky to help us out with her force-free Comprehensive Behaviour Program. Now we have a dog we feel comfortable around. We now get in front of her behaviours before they get out of hand. We also know how to manage new events that might result in her becoming reactive.
The best part about working with Sparky is she was able to explain why our dog was doing what she was doing and how we can help her. We had to make some changes in our life but it was worth it. Throughout the months, Sparky responded back quickly to all our questions and provided great ideas to resolve problems that arose. And, an added bonus, our dog is no longer incontinent which was likely due to her overall anxiousness.
For those considering hiring Sparky to help them, we would definitely recommend her. Make sure she is the first place to go before trying anything else - it will save you time and money and lower your frustration. She will guide you to resolve your dog's behaviour, no matter how challenging. - Mike and Christine Kittl
"Working with Sparky and team has taught me so much. Honestly, Abby is a whole different dog. Just amazing" - Bev Bogeart
"I met with Sparky about my Yorkshire Terrier who was driving us to despair with his constant barking. We felt we had tried everything. She partnered with us, developed a plan that worked for our family, and then trained and coached us. We were delighted with the results. The difference now is significant with noticeable reduction in his barking, he is more courageous and calm, and just seems happier. Sparky is easy to talk to, explains everything well and was very reassuring that we would have success even when nothing else had worked. We have no hesitation in recommending Sparky." - Ragan Zilic-Lovegrove
"Thank you Sparky for your help with Juneau! Our one-on-one sessions with you have assisted us to better understand what he is communicating, and your training plan to strengthen our bond and positively guide his behaviour is working. We have seen amazing results when we consistently apply the methods, and he absolutely loves the mental stimulation games! " - Tracey Christian
