From Cross Creature To Friendly Fido
Cali came to us with severe separation anxiety, obsessive compulsive tendencies, and was super dog-reactive. She had been so traumatized by her past she didn't know how to handle a normal life! Her owners tried to compensate for her tragic history by giving her lots of rewards, which caused her to expect instant gratification. Working with her vet to find the right combination of medication and training, we were able to help Cali relax and feel safe alone.
Before her time with us, Cali had to be separated from the other dogs in her home. Her aggression was so severe that her owners had resorted to using blackout curtains to prevent even the slightest exposure to them. It took time and dedication, but she eventually learned that the other dog was not going to eat her! Eventually they became friends.
“Through nothing but positive reinforcement and the knowledge that Jodi has, we were able to make what I would say a "miracle" happen. I'm so happy to say that Cali is not only getting along with the other dogs but I am now able to call her away from stressful situations as well.
Jodi has given my Cali Girl a second chance and the ability to live a happy stress free life. I honestly can't thank her enough!”
