Testimonial: Dealt With Resource Guarding Through Roman’s Online Class

IMG_1820.JPG

Hi Roman I was just watching one of your videos.  I can't believe how one online class of your has helped to this extent. 

Rudy now sits for his leash to go outside.

I'm watching the one on resource guarding and I watched the one on how it is important for puppies to learn the threshold of biting. 

I believe we are responsible for his problems for how we handled his mouthing and nipping at us and taking things away.

 

We decided to approach it by giving him more bones and more opportunities to show us early cues he isn't comfortable. 

In 2 incidents he ran to his kennel with items he took from the kitchen.  I noticed both times it was the fast motion of my sons reaction even though they weren't near his kennel.

Im so grateful for all help through online classes to knowledge through your groups. I have seen a remarkable difference not only in Rudy but particularly in one of our sons. This experience is even more essential since Rudy was displaying aggression and our son is going into the profession of law enforcement.he greatest news is everyone in the house watching the first lesson and is consistent with Rudy. 

I truly appreciate is that you are not only helping us with the problem but the fact he now sits to greet us and get his leash on has made everyone so excited about Rudy and how this can work.

It is so hopeful.

Thank you - Laura Koelsch- Ohio USA 

Testimonial: We were scared for her...

January 6th

I got a FB message request:

“Hi Roman, my heart is broken. We are a family of four 2 beautiful EM with us since puppies and a brindle EM/Boxer female we rescued 1.5 years ago. She came from a drug house filled with abuse physical and emotional and bred at a very young age . She was pulled off the streets from an animal rescue. They posted her picture the rest us history . Through out her time with us we have overcome many hurdles. We feel that we have gained her trust and have given her love and a stable family . She is the pack leader which I’m not sure is normal for a new dog to come in and take over or not but she rules both my boys who really don’t care one way or another. Sorry trying to make this short , I am with her the most I am vet attentive to her as I guess we always feel bad for her . Bottom line Roman she bites me a lot and it’s always when I am giving her loving attention. She gives ever indication she want the pets and love and her body language and her talk says she is loving it and then BAM out of the blue she goes at my face . I have several marks on my face over a two week period but it is always me that she does this to . I am ready to give up and just leave her alone . I love her and will never forsake her but this breaks my heart ♥️. Thanks for listening

But there was another problem:

 “We didn’t have the money for private but i truly believe no one understands more than you”

The solution: 

I had a online workshop coming up and also tons of videos on my YouTube channel so I had them subscribe and watch specific videos.  

Yesterday I got tagged on a post:

 Roman Gottfried is not a dog trainer. ( Well not your typical one)

His ability to read and understand the needs of dogs is beyond any trainer out there today. Dogs are family and should be treated as such.

He understands  that the beloved canine in the house isn’t a thing to control but to be loved, listened to, respected and taught how to behave in this human environment, which they didn’t ask for, we picked them. Roman under stands their feelings, how they think and by their body language what their mood and health . You won’t hear him use harsh words , no harsh equipment and no out of bounds in the house unless it is your wish or a danger . So for those that want their dog acting robotic, obeying your every wish, and continue to humiliate your loved one , please don’t go to Roman, he is not your guy !


Although i hate this picture of me , this is our Zoe Zelda who was a rescue with  abusive issues.  A year ago I would not have been able to get this close to her . We were scared for her , 

I sent two videos to Roman , and he identified her concern and  over time we addressed it with her. We have had her two years now and the care and concern Roman had for her was her cure !! 

Never give upon them!

 

This got my surprise and I have to admit that I had tears in my eyes. People love their dog’s, they are vomited, they need help, and some times they don’t have the financial strength to buy services.  

I wish I could help them all but it all has a price.  

Last year I donated 600 hours in online consultations for low income and rescue cases.

You can help make a difference, by helping me supporting those in need, to get the training necessary to keep the dogs in their homes and not surrendered to the shelter, Or put to sleep.

Just wanted to let you know that You have been a HUGE asset to us both and Luci!  Your videos have really helped us to understand how to communicate with Luci.  She has picked up on things so quickly once we watched your videos and applied your "wise wisdom." We joke and say that we were the ones that needed the training, and not her.. Have a AWESOME Day!

Testimonial: I Never Imagined Myself In That Position

I never would have imagined that someone could completely train a dog from so far away, but with his knowledge and teaching techniques, Roman is able to teach owners how to be the best leader for their dog, no matter where in the world they are.” - Melissa Wilton from Calgary, Alberta -Canada

Testimonial: What in the world is a Hot-dog Test?

Guest Blog - Sharyl Hardy- Austin Texas

Corbin and Sega (aka Saber)

Corbin and Sega (aka Saber)

“I probably never shared this story, lol. After I adopted Corbin, I kept tabs on his last remaining brother (Saber, now Sega). They had been fostered together with their littermates and I felt badly about separating them.  Sega was still unadopted about a month after I brought Corbin home and I emailed the rescue to find out his status.

Sega had actually been "adopted" twice and returned by two families that felt he had too much energy. So he bounced around to two more foster homes and I felt terrible about that.

So, Corbin was in training with my friend Roman during the time I was checking on Sega. I tried finding him a home myself but no interest. I finally asking Roman what he thought about me taking Sega in addition to Corbin. And he told me I should let Corbin decide.

When I laughed and asked how, he suggested a brilliant idea. He told me to go into the other room and on a sheet of paper, write out the options. So, on one half of the paper in my office I wrote: "Bring Saber home" and on the other half I wrote: "Saber stays there." 

We took two pieces of hot dog (high value treats for training) and I placed a bit of hot dog under each option. Roman said, whichever one Corbin takes first, is his choice.

 

Proof of test results  

Proof of test results  

What's funny was, neither one of us knew how it would work out. I thought Corbin would gobble them both and be done with it. But Corbin actually took one...and totally left the other one on the paper, which stunned me. He never went back for the other piece of hot dog. So....in effect, Corbin told me he wanted his brother with us too.
And that is the "hot dog test." " - Cheryl Hardy - Austin Texas, USA
