While walking my two beautiful, but willful Westies one day, I saw a neighbor who was walking her rescue Shepard mix, Angel. We used to swap stories about how smart but disobedient our dogs were, how exhausting walking them was and how difficult, if not impossible it was, to train them. To my astonishment, Angel was walking calmly and quietly by her side and was following all her commands. I asked her how her dog could have changed so drastically in just two weeks and she told me about Dog Remedy and David Reinecker.
I immediately checked out David's web site (www.dogremedy.com). It all looked too good to be true and I did not call him about training my dogs for several more weeks due to my previous bad experience with other dog trainers.
When I brought Duffy, my first Westie home, he cried incessantly for the first week. I was at my wit's end and hadn't slept all week. My boss suggested that I bring Duffy to another trainer. What a mistake. Before the other trainer came out, his assistant talked me into buying 8 videotapes, 3 books and a leash for almost $200.00. As soon as the trainer saw my little 8 week old 3 lb. puppy, he threw him on the ground, held him down forcibly and shoved his finger down the dog's throat. I said "what the hell are you doing???" and he said "he is neurotic, needs to be dominated and needs to get used to having someone shove pills down his throat". I grabbed my little shaking puppy and left.
Then David came along. He was exactly what the pups and I needed: a calming, gentle, loving approach to dog training. Miraculously, after only 3 lessons, the dogs are not only so much better behaved, but happier, too. Friends and neighbors who know my dogs cannot believe the change in the them in such a short period of time. Their incessant barking ceased (a miracle in itself), they walk calmly by my side instead of pulling the leash all over, they don't bolt out the front door and they are calmer and incredibly obedient. Due to David's calm, loving, no nonsense approach, even though they are well behaved, they haven't lost their fun Westie spirit.
I highly recommend David to anyone who wants their dogs trained in a strong but kind and loving way. He gets results immediately. It is the best money I could have ever spent on these loving dogs.
