Linda C. of Lincoln Park, Michigan shares her story of how her dog Lexie (before
training with Michael Burkey, a Michigan Professional Dog Trainer) use to jump up to
greet people and cause injuries. Her sister had received bloody noses and she had
her lip split by Lexie’s friendly but overly excited greetings.
Previously, Linda had tried to teach Lexie to sit instead of jumping up by using
only food treats (positive reinforcement). However, this was unsuccessful due to
Lexie’s high level of excitement. With the use of a remote training collar set at
the “just right level” along with praise and food treats, Lexie learned to sit
instead of jump up, to walk on a loose leash, to come when called, to go to “place”
to greet visitors at the front door and to be overly a calmer dog.
Linda’s sister had stopped visiting her due to Lexie’s prior behavior but has now
returned to visiting her with no repeated jumping incidents. Additionally, Linda’s
dog groomer has also noted how much calmer Lexie is now during grooming sessions.
In Linda’s own words, she says “No more blood (bloody noses and split lips)”,
“People actually like her now” and “I highly recommend the (remote) collars.” For
