I started meeting with Kari in December to help me regarding a few issues with my dogs. Specifically potty training. I was at my wits end. I have 4 tiny Chihuahuas. All of whom are rescues and 3 of which came from large scale puppy mills so the spent most of their lives in cages being neglected. Chihuahuas are notoriously difficult to potty train if you don’t start them out right away while they’re still puppies. None of my dogs were puppies when I adopted them and 2 were over the age of 7! When I first met with Kari and she laid out the training plan I was EXTREMELY skeptical at best. I just did not see me being able to get these dogs potty trained to a point where I wasn’t turning around every hour cleaning up someone’s mess. But I was committed to following her suggestions to a tee because well, I had nothing more to lose. And boy am I glad I made the commitment!!
I am happy to say that in a very short period of time they went from all 4 having accidents if not daily then every other day to having accident maybe a few times a week. Now 6 months later, I can honestly say that I might clean up an accident once a month if that! And that is between all 4 dogs!! In my world from where I started, that is HUGE! Taking the time to follow Kari’s suggestions and learning to keep them on a potty schedule and crating them when I’m gone has made such an enormous difference. Not only am I happier, the dogs are happier. I’m so grateful I found Kari and was willing to invest the time and effort in trying to try my dogs. I would recommend her to anybody struggling with potty training their dogs. If I can get mine to go from being 0% potty trained to 80% anyone can!!
