Happy Students

When we first got Willow she was scared of absolutely everything.  We attended Life Skills & Manners right away and made a lot of progress with her obedience but she was still so scared.  We reached out to Bark All About It and under her recommendation we attended 4 lessons designed to boost her confidence. Monica was so creative with the lessons exposing Willow to new environments, noises, surfaces and more.  She was never pushed outside of her confidence and we watched her grow right before our eyes.  The transformation was truly incredible and we are so thankful for Monica’s help.
