  3. I am wondering about training for my 2 yr old German Shepherd. He is very protective of me and if someone walks by my house he goes crazy, he has popped the screen of our front window out and when he wants in he jumps on the patio doors and has shredded our screen door. He is an amazing dog walks really good, but if anyone comes near me he loses it.
    Ao basically I am wondering what your coat is. Any info you can provide me would help me make a decision on what I need to do with my shepherd.

    • I would be happy to help you and by the sounds of it your dog needs a lot of work, sounds like even the basics are missing. I am $70 per session which is one hour. Sounds to me like your dog requires more of a one on one in house training which is our boot camp program. This is a ten day in house training program where you dog will get the work out she needs. This is $700 for the full ten days. If you go back to the main page of this website you can read under success stories all the dogs whom have graduated from the boot camp program. If you would like to set up a training session or boot camp please email me again. Thank you for your inquiry.

Thanks Mel

    • Hello Mel,

      I can sure try and get you guys sorted, with that said it may not be a quick fix it may take him time. There are a few things we can work on and the first would be teaching him your pack order! It also sounds like he needs some socialization which we can also look into there are a few ways to accomplish this but I would need to see him and see what his issues are. If you would like to set up a training session to see where we are and where we go is up to you. I have some time next week if your interested? Please give me a call if you would like to set up a day and time that works for you 613-779-1236 and we can go from there.
