Brutus came home a new dog. He still has his happy, playful personality, but now he knows all his basic obedience commands, and his anxiety is gone!


Desi has done a complete 180 all because of Julie. I just took Desi to Baker Park on a nice day, before this would have been impossible.


Rocket and the humans learned that if we have clear consistent boundaries and expectations, we can all live more comfortably together.
