Walks with him are now actually enjoyable!

Before Flash Dog Training, walking our Newton, an 80-pound Great Pyrenees mix, was awful. He’d pull, bark, and lunge, always trying to protect us from the scary trucks, kids on bikes, the guy in a hat, a branch that swayed in the wind. We had worked with multiple dog trainers over the years to improve Newton’s reactivity and his confinement anxieties relating to crating. Nothing worked, until he spent three weeks at Flash with lead trainer Ali.

Walks with him are now actually enjoyable. He looks up and checks in constantly. He has recall — which was something we honestly never expected due to his breed mix. (Great Pyrenees tend to wander.) When hiking, we now don’t have to pull off the trail to let people pass. He’s unbothered and not reactive when we pass other dogs and hikers. What is even more astonishing to us is that we can crate him. As soon as we grab a tasty high-value treat, he runs into his kennel. He quietly chomps away as we close the kennel door and leave for errands.

Because of Flash Training, Newton is less reactive, much calmer, and able to look to us for direction. We’ve been so happy with his progress that we’re about to send our newest-adopted pup to Board and Train at Flash as well.
