As first time dog owners we were excited and intimidated...we then found out that our rescue Mutt was partial Belgian Malinois. They are known for their intelligence and protective instincts. Several friends commented that we had better get a trainer or the dog would begin to train us! That is when we found Rena. Our vet recommended her to us and I honestly don't know what we would have done without her! Even though Dexter is still a puppy (6 months old) I feel we have a real firm foundation. It is true that she has a technique for just about any 'unwanted' behavior. Her technique is to use positive pairing rather than punishment and the results are amazing! Rena also really knows dogs and we appreciated all of her bits of wisdom since this is such a new experience for us. I look forward to continuing in Rena's group classes now, so that we will have not only a well behaved dog, but a socialized one as well.
