Trainer: Alana Meserve
I called Zen Dog after an incident where my dog had bit my hand. Batman has had some issues over the past couple of years, and he has had some instances of biting me - not cool. This particular time was the almost-last straw, and I was at my wit's end. I was seriously considering putting him down, as his behavior was dangerous and unpredictable. After a short consultation with Gordon on the phone, he told me that I could spend some time with Alana Meserve - the Zen Dog aggressive dog specialist. This was a very good suggestion!
Alana came to our place for a consultation and we continued working with Alana for three more sessions, during which time she helped us to identify significant triggers for our dog's unsociable behavior, and show us ways to handle him when he was growly.
Alana saved Batman's life, and much of our sanity. We love our pup dearly, and his behavior management plan (and OURS) has been working very well. I cannot recommend Alana enough - she is genuinely talented and incredibly pleasant.
