While we cannot guarantee the outcome of our work with you and your dog, the good news is that many behaviors are very responsive to behavior modification.  Dogs are animals and each is an individual with their own personality, genetics, socialization, and history.  Being animals, we cannot guarantee the final outcome, only that we will do our absolute best to ensure a good outcome for all parties involved.  We pride ourselves on being open and honest and we will always do what is best for you and your dog.
