During a walk in the woods last week Mark trained my dog to return when off leash. My dog is a terrier who when focused on the hunt ignored me completely. In less than an hour Mark taught me how to get the results I wanted and using his techniques Minnie continues to return immediately and quickly no matter what the distraction. I can't recommend Mark or CPT more. If you need help, call them.

I have a wonderful dog that was traumatized by a teenager when I left him in the car for a few minutes. I cought the kid doing it, that is how I know it happened. After this teen teasing and scaring my dog he became aggressive. I tried for several weeks to get things back to my friendly, warm dog, but my efforts were futile. I had been taking classes with CPT and told this story to my trainer who suggested that I speak with the owner who works with aggressive behavior. My dog and I met with Mark, the owner, for a 2 1/2 hour session that was nothing short of miraculous. He set up scenarios for us right there in the building. Gave me tools to use to reassure my dog and bring peace to the house again. I have had dogs all of my life and never had this situation. No matter what I worked on with my dog, nothing seemed to really help. After working with him at home and in the neighborhood for a week, he was almost back to normal! Now things ARE back to normal and I could never have done it without Mark's help and guidance. His instructors that we have had (3 classes so far)have been fantastic, positive and very professional. We are now taking agility classes and having so much fun!

My dog was showing some aggression towards other dogs. It seemed like he would have to be separated from other dogs forever, until we found CPT. Now, just weeks later, Murphy can go to the park without scaring others (and me). I feel more in control of my pet's behavior than ever before. Don't give up, call CPT!
