Rena has trained both of my dogs and I don't know what I would have done without her. Clancy who is a golden retriever alpha male was a problem as soon as I brought him home. At 7 weeks he tried to intimidate my 7 year old golden and me. As he grew so did his behavior go from bad to worse. I had gotten a dog trainer but for 8 weeks he had not stopped him from biting, ripping my clothes, cornering me as I tried to walk and lunging at me. At the end of the 8 weeks of home training he told me to use the citronella spray collar on him for bad behavior which of course did not work as Clancy thought this was fun. I was going to work black and blue and bitten and did not know what to do. My vet suggested Rena so I called her and she came to my home. Rena evaluated him that night and stopped him from going after me. I do not know what she did but after she left Clancy was a different dog. This was in one session! As she continued to work with Clancy he became a wonderful dog and she also told me what to do as I never had a dog like him. Clancy would have ended up in the pound if I did not have him and I had 4 goldens prior to getting him so I knew what I was doing but he was an exceptionally hard to handle dog. Clancy is now almost 7 and is doing great. I adopted Mary - a rescue Newfoundland puppy four years ago and Rena also trained Mary. She did not have any issues but because of her size - 130 pounds - she needed training. Rena was great with Mary as well.
Rena is a superior dog trainer and I would highly recommend her to train all dogs from small to large and any disposition. If she had not come to my rescue I may not be writing this testimonial today as Clancy may have done away with me!
