improving relationships between people and pets!
I had a very difficult situation with two male cats and I was not promised that it could be completely resolved. Thanks to the team's expertise and constant attention to detail, there as been, with the help of medication, 100% success. I am extremely grateful!
You've been so excellent in suggesting things and other options when I've felt overwhelmed because something or other wasn't working smoothly. You've always made me feel that it was solvable, and that too kept in my mind Dr. Tripp's telling me that he had a big bag of tricks and if one didn't work then another might. That's helped me to keep going and to pull it together and try harder quite a few times. And, early on, when Dr. Tripp asked me if I would be open to rehoming Dickens, it was awful. But then once I really thought it over, I knew that although I would be willing to do it if I could be assured Dickens would have a happier life, I also wanted to first give a good try at making this home situation work for everyone. …and as Dickens sits beside me and threatens to drop his drools onto my keyboard, I am just very happy and grateful to you, Dr. Tripp and Krista for making this possible.
History: Canine Aggression
What skills did you
find MOST Valuable? getting nick
to respect all family members, stop being
aggressive, staying off the bed to help with
aggressiveness and "go to mat" worked
What techniques did
you find difficult to follow? they
were all very well explained. if they were
difficult it was only in carrying them out,
but they worked and were always for the
What tools or
techniques did you find particularly useful?
"food puzzles" worked wonders. the "go to
mat" command was a life saver. and of
What parts of your
program did you NOT like? well,
there were some difficult ones, like "the
invisible dog" but I
KNOW we had to do that. It was worth it.
Nick is much better for it.
What parts of your
program would you change?
nothing. it was excellent.
Do you have any
comments or quotes to pass along to others?
At first I was scared to do this. I thought,
they will never see Nick, how could this
possibly help? Well, they were in contact
with me more than anybody that would have
seen Nick and they always were very
concerned, they cared, and never let you
feel like you couldn't do it. It worked
wonders for Nick and his aggression. When
nothing else worked, ABN was the last thing
we tried and it was worth every second. Now
we can give Nick the happy and healthy life
guys sooo sooo sooo incredibly much.
This has given us the chance to give
Nick a happy, healthy life. We would do
anything for him, and you guys have done
everything for all of us. we are so
greatful! Please let me know of anything
further I can do or need to do, etc.
Thank you so much Tara! This means the
world to us. Nick says he loves you
Tim, Nick and Puck

Not one accident

You guys are the
aggression toward people
...I am so grateful to you, Dr. Tripp and Claudia for all
your work with me and Aggy. I rather expect if we had not taken this path,
Aggy would have been put down because of her aggression. You have taught me
I will always have to be vigilant with her around others, but I think I can
now open her world a little wider for both of us to enjoy.
Thank you again.

...Animal Behavior Network focused on training
me so that I could train Amanda. Terriers
are a wonderful breed, but very headstrong.
We wanted Amanda to be fun to be around but
under control when needed and at the same
time not lose any of her wonderful personality.
We now have a very happy, confident dog...I
feel confident that I will be able to handle
any situation that may arise, thanks to your
after Dr. Tripp did the
you like the most about the trainer?
liked Reggie! He showed tremendous
compassion & understanding for our
poor handling of Reggie in the
past. We’ve gotten a little
sensitive to criticism about our
love for Reggie. It’s very
refreshing to have “Reggie friendly”
help. I wasn’t expressing
myself correctly to Reggie – it
wasn’t his fault. Most people don’t
like Reggie because of us. We have
focus and a plan of action to make
thinks better – We are very
you like least about the trainer?
Don and I don’t
have anything but total gratitude for Dr.
Tripp for coming out to support us and
Reggie. I can’t express how much
difference it has made to us both to know
that we have support out there, and that an
expert thinks Reggie is a great dog too!
We just needed some help loving him like
dogs need to be loved. It’s very different
from children. We think we understand
the dog language a little better now and can
make Reggie happy without making us crazy.
We love him and want him happy too. Dr.
Tripp gave us that gift!
