We are always happy share our knowledge with you. Our advise to you is based on many years of practical experence and our love of dogs.
That said, we would never propose that our recommendations be used over that of your veterinarian or a trained behaviorist if there are medical or behavior issues. For this reason we always suggest that you make an appointment with your veterinarian before we begin any behavior based training.
We are here to offer our help. You know your pet better than anyone else. Regardless, you have the final call when it comes to your dog. You should always use your best judgement regarding obtaining the best care and training for your pet.
