Dexter was about as dysfunctional as a family dog could be. He could not be exposed to anyone and his veterinarian could no longer care for him. His inability to regulate his own emotions lead to his learning some pretty bizarre and dangerous behavior. Dexter was so intense, that his family was fearful for us taking him into a behavior therapy program – fearful for the safety of our staff. In the end Dexter transitioned home peacefully and without leaving any collateral damage behind.
“Jim Lessenberry and Animal Learning Systems has been the best thing to happen to Dexter and to our family. Dexter used to be an out of control and anxious dog who was scared about anyone and everything he was unfamiliar with. We tried many other trainers and behavioral ‘experts’ with no success. Faced with the possibility of having to give up on Dexter, we tried one last time in hopes of saving Dexter’s life. Jim and his team completely transformed Dexter into a well-mannered and well trained dog who we now can confidently love as our family pet. Since his training three years ago, we only trust Animal Learning Systems to board Dexter when we leave town. They continue to take care of him and maintain his training every time he stays with them. We are amazing to see his transformation and recommend Jim and the entire team at Animal Learning Systems to who loves their dog as much as we do! “
