Kudos +Razer. I don't recall the last time I had such a headache-free RMA process.

We rescued our husky/retriever mix at 6 weeks, and while he is a bundle of joy, he is also a bundle of infinite energy. If you can imagine a 70lb puppy that can go from 1 to 10 (more like 12) on the excitement scale in a matter of seconds, that barely scratches the surface. :) Even though we had just *passed* puppy school in our area, he couldn't sit still for 2 seconds, and walking was more an exercise in attempting to not let go of the leash while he dragged us down the street. Needless to say when we walked into Beyond the Leash to meet Eric I couldn't help but be skeptical. Walking into the school, I was immediately amazed at the fact that even though our puppy was ready to explode if he got any more excited, Eric and his apprentice Suzanne's dogs both remained lying down in the middle of the room. In that moment I knew that this was the right school and the right instructor(s) for us. It is also reaffirmed any time that you see Eric's dog, who is trained as a bodyguard dog interacting when she is not on command. She could easily be a therapy dog in a hospital. It is really quite remarkable. Eric can make quite a first impression. But don't let the fact that he is a built like a mack truck make you hesitate to train at Beyond The Leash, because you will not find another human being who is as compassionate towards dogs as Eric. You see it in how he interacts with his dog, how he talks about his previous dog whose photo is hanging on the wall in the school, and most importantly in how he interacts with every single dog in the class. He has infinite patience (with dogs :) but I would will remiss to mention that he will be quick to identify anything that you are doing wrong, occasionally in as abrupt a way possible. :) Training with Eric at Beyond the Leash is not a *quick fix*. Just walking through the door will not get results; it requires dedication, hard work and like anything of value, you get out of it what you put into it. But with 8-10 other students in the classes, it is very easy to see who is practicing and who isn't. We went through novice with students of all ages who had dogs of different breeds and sizes. Some showed up by themselves or with their entire families. It is a very friendly and encouraging atmosphere where we share in each other's successes and learn from one another's failures. It is also very motivating to be able to attend classes with students who have been there for years that still show up because they get so much out of it. I never thought that I would actually *enjoy* going to puppy class, I just thought it was a necessary evil for dog owners. But we are there, 3 nights a week and I can't imagine a better way to spend our time. So, if you are still reading this and are still not sure. Just call Eric and ask to sit in on one of his classes. We are definitely a success story and will be there. :)
