Aussie Doodle off leash beach“Highly recommend Katherine at Canines in Balance. We have a 3.5 year old Aussiedoodle who was very hyper and suffers from Separation Anxiety. While she is a very friendly and loving dog, she did not respect boundaries, we were not able to get out or in the house without her screaming, and jumping at us at the door, couldn’t take her in the car because she wouldn’t sit still and shed scream, taking her for a walk was a chore because she did not walk nicely on a leash. Needless to say, there were a lot of areas of behaviour that desperately needed correction. We contacted Katherine and got set up with 8 sessions. She suggested remote collar training and off leash training as well. I will admit I didn’t really see the point of off leash training because I thought the majority of her issues were inside the house, however I am now able to see how they all connected. Katherine is extremely good at taking note of each dog, their personality and what works for that particular family. I can honestly say after 8 weeks, our dog is happier, healthier and more relaxed. Our dog was quite the challenge, but my husband and I can honestly say, she’s changed for the better and now she is a big part of our everyday activities and we love being able to have her around small children and outdoors whenever we are!! Thank you Katherine for your knowledge, and support!”
