My wife and I have been using Best Paw Forward's services since July of 2015, when we realized our 8 month old puppy Bodie was having issues with fear based aggression when encountering strangers and visitors to our house. Michael and Jamie were able to quickly gain Bodie's trust and we went to work on his stranger aggression using positive techniques. We initially took 4 in home lessons. Michael and Jamie ended up coming 2 extra times for no additional charge when his issue was more difficult than initially expected. We also used them a few months later for a board and train session when we went out of town for 2 weeks. He came back a lot more responsive to us and that enabled us to further work on his issues. Working with Michael and Jamie's methods have both trained Bodie to have more confidence and has also educated us on how to best work with our dog so that he can not be so fearful outside of the house as well as being more under control inside the house. One of the things we appreciate the most is that after the lessons and the training, they continue to provide support via email and phone, as well as having occasional dog walks in local parks with past & current clients (and anybody else who wants to join). This has been critical in helping Bodie overcome his issues as well as making him a great dog to live with. I would recommend Best Paw Forward to anybody who has issues training their dog as well as anybody who just wants a better behaved doggie.
