We love our clients from Savannah, Georgia, Hilton Head Island, and Charleston, South Carolina!
Our 2 year old dog, Bri, use to have some fearful, protective, aggressive behaviors when around other people/dogs. Even if we were just walking with her and passed someone, her hair would stand up, she would growl and lunge at the person. After 10 long weeks, we got Bri back and swear she is a new pup! Not only are we more comfortable taking Bri out in public, but she is also at ease. We couldn’t recommend Enrique, Meagan, and all of DogWorx staff more! Enrique was great at answering all of our questions and putting us at ease, by teaching us how to incorporate the training into every day life. We were extremely nervous at the take home lesson since we have two years of her bad behavior engrained in our brain. But after walking with Bri off leash in Savannah, with Enrique, we feel confident and trust Bri.
Our Dog Sadie was 15 months old and a real rescue (from a swamp) and generally a good dog and a fun dog but we realized a few screws needed to be tightened. Our search for an overnight training facility brought us to dogworx and Enrique's 6 week program. Sadie was a puppy on steroids, lots of energy and because she was a strafforfshireTerrier (pit bull) I can understand why people would be frightened by her aggressive friendliness. We needed to get that under control.
End results from "boot camp" .... we met first at his training facility where we got a thorough review of the previous 6 weeks and learned her commands and more importantly the reasons behind them. Basically training us now! We then broke and reconvened in a downtown park in Savanah GA complete with many people , dogs and distractions. While we talked about what was next Enrique and Megan took Sadie's leash off and SHE JUST SAT THERE! We stepped aside, maybe 10 feet and she didn't budge, just sat and waited. Next my wife and i learned to walk her around people and learn her outdoor commands. Then (get this) we walked.up to the city Market, in Savanah GA, on July 3 (tours time) with people and dogs everywhere....oh....we did this without a leash on her! Through people! Past dogs! Sans leash! And she never left my side, in fact her head was at my knee...always! AMAZING!
We went back to his studio, wrapped thing up and got instructed on our part, our Job, for the next 30 days.
When she got home it was clear she didn't forget. It was fun to work in the back yard with her. She was her normal, happy self. It was hard to be firm with her.
First night she was.loud in her crate so we hooked up with Meagan and Enrique on a video call for some reassuring instructions on things that "came up" and questions that we didn't think of earlier. Since the she hasn't made a sound at night, not a peep.
I could go on forever but its best to say in was the best money I have spent. She becomes more fun every day.
Do it people, beat thing for your dog
My dog Piper was a bit of a handful before completing her training with Dogworx. Before training she was scared of everything, starting to become aggressive, very afraid of new people, especially children. After her training she was much more confidant, more attentive, and overall just a more behaved and manageable dog. Throughout the entire process Enrique and Megan were very responsive and helpful. Overall great experience for myself and my dog.
What can I say about DogWorx? All the best! When I was in high school, I did some dog training myself so when my previous dog needed training, I knew what to look for. Enrique and Meaghan are both unbelievably well versed in dealing with both problematic and non-problematic dogs. Furthermore, when we wanted to adopt a dog, we adopted Maggie, one of the dogs that was left with them as the original owners didn't want her back after training. Maggie is a Great Dane, and can be handful, but everywhere we go we get compliments on her behavior and how well she is trained. So, if you're looking to get your dog training, or even maybe adopt a dog that is trained, the DogWorx team is the go-to destination.
Everyone knows a German Shepherd is one of the most common restricted breeds. I brought my dog to another trainer who informed me that he was not equipped to handle my dog's aggressive behaviors. I continued to do my research and was overjoyed when three people whom I spoke to recommended DogWorx. They said he worked WONDERS with their dogs. So I reached out, and booked the appointment. We met with Enrique during the pet interview, who was not swayed at all by my dog's obvious dislike for strangers. The application process was lengthy but extremely thorough and I had ZERO hesitations after seeing how professional this company was, especially with their health requirements for each dog they train. We were completely blown away by the transformation after the training had concluded. I am now able to take my GSD out in public places. The DogWorx team not only thoroughly trained our dog but took the time to train us on what we need to do to continue our dog's progress. They have been accommodating every step of the way, providing different tools (at no additional cost) to use to get the best results for our pup and what worked best for her. We are so grateful for the dedication the DogWorx team put towards helping our dog!
