We have had Digby back now for 2 weeks after spending 3 weeks away with Craig & his family for Residential Dog Boot Camp.
I got Digby when he was a 6-month puppy from a kennel while in KSA, had him at home for 3 months, but was in the process of switching jobs, the idea was to place him back in a dog hotel/ compound for 4-5 weeks max, and do a quick visa run back to the UK… not so simple Covid kicked in, it took me over 13 months to finally get Digby into the UK, so all this time, he’s been having the time of his life, no real control, bouncing around with other dogs & a young lioness (yes it true).
At this point, he’s the best part of 2 years old, with no training !!, not the best start for him. I tried for the best part of a year to work with him, but the gains weren’t worth noting, zero recall, overexcited with anything that moved, no attentiveness, jumping up on people, etc.
Then I came across the Vislor website and read some of the reviews, I was very impressed, but part of me thought, maybe it was a little too late for Digby as he’s now approaching 3yrs old. (2nd May 2022) Spoke to Lorraine about my issues and booked him in. If I'm honest, I didn’t really expect too much, but would have been happy with him being easier on the lead, and not jumping up on people. but WOW what a difference.
I can easily say, what Craig and his team have done in 3 weeks, I could never have done in YEARS. Digby is so calm now on his walks, even to the point he's off the lead over the fields, the jumping up on people has stopped, he generally seems a lot happy with himself as he can interact with other dogs and have a good run. His recall will always need a little work, but that’s more between us both to learn the boundaries, etc. Craig recommended two different collars for Digby which have helped with his continued training.
I don’t know what to say that hasn't already been said by the other posts, but if you ever think it's too late, please don’t, get in touch with Craig and his team, it’s the best decision Ive ever made.
