Sam Ivy saved our dog – he gave us the tools we needed to keep our dog. We brought home Cooper, our beagle, at eight weeks old. Within weeks, we knew that Cooper’s behavior was not “normal-puppy” behavior. He was biting us, biting others, and showed no respect for authority. We became prisoners to Cooper. We could not leave our house without him barking excessively, and we received complaints from neighbors about him barking for lengths of time after we left. We were even told not to bring him back to the vet without sedating him first. He was more than a handful – he was a terror. Sam was patient and ensured that we built a strong foundation and understood each piece of the program. Within a few weeks, Cooper was walking at our heel and staying on “spot” for two hour intervals. We were beginning to get our lives back. Sam Ivy gave us the tools we need for life. We are firm believers in this program. We are confident that if this program worked for us and for Cooper, it can work for any dog so long as you are committed. We are forever grateful to Sam Ivy for giving us the means we needed to keep Cooper in our lives.
