Sound Dog Connection

Testimonial: Almost a year ago we adopted a 10 week old neglected and abused puppy we named Bella.  As she grew, we noticed her fears did, too.  While never afraid of dogs, or other animals, her fear of strangers quickly became debilitating.  She would do shut down if a stranger approached her on-leash, and would run if approached off-leash.  We tried everything we could, but knew it just wasn’t enough.  We didn’t know what to do.

We were referred to Ann from a family member who saw the struggle to help our sweet girl.  Our first session was nothing short of amazing.  I couldn’t believe the breakthroughs and bravery we were seeing in Bella just halfway through that first session!  Ann was so gentle; so patient.  Her energy was inviting and kind and Bella really began to respond.  In fact, on the car ride home following our first session, Bella hung her head out the window and enjoyed the breeze.  That was something she had been too afraid to do even just the day before!

We left with a clear and concise plan moving forward on just what it was going to take to help our sweet girl start to live her best life free of fear.  Ann isn’t teaching Bella.  Ann is teaching US so that WE can teach Bella and that is a huge difference from how many trainers work.  I can implement the things Ann is teaching me in real time, here at home and that is making a world of difference!

Bella means the world to us and I can wholeheartedly say we wouldn’t trust her confidence, happiness and future with anyone but Ann and Sound Dog Connection!!
