Our Philosophy & Goals
Our philosophy is simple. Improve the life of both dog and family. All too often, unruly dogs do not fully enjoy life because their families constantly become upset and frustrated with them. This is difficult for both family and dog.
Our mission is simple. Make both dog and family happy.
What does is take to make your dog happy? He will thrive when you give him leadership and attention.
Making the family happy is a bit more complex.
Families typically want their dog to:
- Come when called, every time, on or off leash
- Walk nicely on a loose leash without pulling
- Sit until released
- Down until released
Families also want their dogs:
- Not to jump on people
- Not to charge through doors
- Not to dig in the garden
- Not to bark and chew inappropriately
- Not to climb on furniture you prefer they avoid
- Not to sniff and eat off the table and counters.
- Not to be wild and uncontrollable
- Not to ignore you when you want their attention
"In short, Marc is a miracle worker. All of my years of schooling in animal behavior didn’t begin to compare with Marc’s experience with challenging dogs. He knew immediately the best way to deal with Heidi’s issues and we are all much, much happier now. I can’t thank him or recommend him enough. If you have problems with your dog, take him/her to Marc!"
My husband and I dearly love our mixed-breed, Heidi, but she was becoming quite a handful for us to deal with. Our best guess of her background is a German Shepard/Border Collie mix and she had had a rather unhappy (probably abusive) history when we got her.
She was an angel in the house, but was very hyper-alert, anxious and overly protective when we went out. She would lunge at other dogs on leash, yank our arms out of the sockets going after squirrels and cats, and was very unpredictable around strangers.
My husband and I have a lot of experience with animals, and in fact, I have a Ph.D. in Animal Behavior. We had no problem training our other dog, but we were at a loss about what to do for Heidi. Nothing we tried to do worked.
A veterinarian friend recommended working with Marc and his ForceFree Method...and the results have been amazing! Heidi was walking politely within 5 minutes of training with Marc and has progressed far beyond what we hoped for. We are all much more relaxed on walks and at the park now. She is very reliable on and off leash, even with major distractions like a ball, other dogs and squirrels!
