My doggle, Sophie, is a rescue and incredibly sensitive. I've tried to work with several trainers but I am not comfortable with the pack leader/dominant type of training. It just feels wrong to me, especially with this sweet dog (not to mention, it has backfired on us both). I was praying for a miracle to help me with her, and I don't even remember at this point how I found the Trust Technique...but I found it. I love this way of working with Sophie, and of course, me! It is a beautiful technique, and it brings results in a gentle and respectful way for my dog. Thank you, James and Shelley, for creating this system and making it available to us!
