My wife and I are first time pet parents, and after adopting our indie girl Zoey (adopted her at 6 weeks), we were at a loss for what the heck we were doing. We tried using online services and YouTube videos to figure out how to handle her or begin to train her for over a month. Although we made some progress, we really didn't know what were doing and what was right versus wrong.
Fortunately I found TCC when Zoey was 2.5 months and things just took a U-Turn from there. Tara and the team at TCC helped us recognize the value of new-age training via positive association and reinforcement. Tara's guidance also helped us identify what we needed to adapt within ourselves (behaviours, body language, consistency, schedule etc) to be able able communicate with our little furry monster.
Their studio is well equipped to handle all kinds of dog interaction, from puppy to adult to senior. The importance of socialisation, desensitising them to touch, surfaces and other stimuli, and overall communication is very easily managed in that environment away from home.
As I write this review, with Zoey being 6+ months old now, we have a pretty well behaved, manageable big puppy who is fulfilled mentally and physically, potty-trained, has a structure and comfortable routine, who we can communicate with and is able to understand us, and is reasonably socialized with other dogs and strangers. We have learnt the importance of ensuring her needs are met holistically, and how to introduce her to new things including noises, places, objects etc.
We have also taken advantage of their grooming services on occasion and found it very reasonably priced, but most importantly Zoey was very comfortable with them.
I cannot stress the level of comfort we have knowing what we know today thanks to Tara and the team, and we are grateful to have been part of their little doggie school/club. We look forward to a long, evolving relationship as Zoey grows and her needs evolve. Thank you TCC!
