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”
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.
