As a puppy, Perrie was wonderful—affectionate, playful, smart and eagerly responsive to training with treats. But he was always very excitable and determined, and no matter how hard we worked we could not teach him to walk on the leash without pulling. By the time he was a year old the problems were getting bigger—he was barking at everyone who walked by the house, and becoming aggressive to other dogs. Investing in his training with Animal Learning Systems was a great decision—they delivered everything they promised. Perrie is transformed, and Evan patiently taught us how to work with him so he continues to be a delight. When we walk downtown he is calm and polite; when we walk in the woods we can take him off the leash, let him run and swim, because his recall is 100%. People comment all the time on how happy he seems, and how well trained he is. We turned to ALS because we asked someone who had a perfect dog how they accomplished it; now we are the ones recommending them.
