has worked for you and your dog.
Your story may be published on this website and/or in printed materials.
In our house we don’t call you The DogFather, but the “dog saint.” With my first dog (Bernese), I used to cry (9 years long!) whenever walking him. Our current dog (a Cane Corso x Boerboel rescue puppy) is known as the best behaved dog in the neighborhood. Now we enjoy every walk. I wish I knew your method before. – Mona Kharazi
I have been training an adopted rescue dog since January for SSIG service for my autistic daughter, using your Perfect Dog system. Everyone is amazed at Rocky’s transition. He was not an ill behaved dog before, but he had no obedience training experience, which is required for a service dog. I’m also currently training my rescued pit mix for service when Rocky retires, as well as my toy poodle – simply because I want the perfect dogs. Thank you so much for offering a comprehensive and affordable training program that is so simple to follow. Definitely worth 5+ stars. I recommend your product to everyone who asks how I have done it with Rocky. Thanks again! – Lauri T.
My dog used to be a terror outside. I was embarrassed to take her anywhere and for that matter I could not take her anywhere because she was absolutely out of control. Today for the first time since owning my dog, I took her out to an outdoor restaurant. There were dogs there that are barking and I told my dog Down! She lay there and behaved! I overheard people saying how good my dog was! I am not lying, I actually cried at hearing those words! How long have I been using the system?…..try about six days! I am so grateful for this program! My life has changed and my dog’s life has changed! – Carla Rochin
Best dog trainer ever. The videos are well put together, the techniques are understandable. Money well spent. All of the other YouTube vids and TV dog training shows just confuse me! They contradict each other and take forever to work. Don Sullivan’s techniques work! – Chelsea Hopkins
We bought this system a few years ago and swear by it! It is amazing, our pups are amazing! Definitely works! – Jena Williams-Gable
Day #1 and we are already seeing drastic improvements in our puppy’s behavior! Can’t wait to move on to the more advanced training over the next few days! Thanks so much, Don! HIGHLY recommended!! – Blake Boyles
I just received the system in the mail today. I put the collar on my 13-week-old Australian Shepherd. My daughter and I sat and watched the videos, and we now have no more leash pulling, and we know the down, sit and come commands. I’m so happy I bought this instead of spending 300 bucks on obedience classes that may not even work. – Megan Renee Irby
We just began using this with our puppy. I am amazed how quickly this little guy (16-week-old Havanese) is catching on. I am sure by spring we will be leash free. Won’t that be fun for the good weather!! – Michelle Sifford
This is the best dog training training we have seen. Its very comprehensive and applicable. The collar and techniques really work as advertised. – Jaime Hendley
I have a Siberian Husky puppy. I recently started using this system about a week ago and I’m amazed. I’m especially thankful for the crazy in the crate segment. We got the dog first and had to wait a week for the crate. He was used to roaming the house, chewing up everything. When I crated him he would bark, whine and howl. I thought I would go insane. After two successful nights in a row I’d say this product is working! – Michelle Glick
I typically don’t do reviews, but for this product I have to! We just acquired a 1 year old great dane. She’s about 145lbs and the owners before us taught her NOTHING! She was very set in her ways, alpha female- refused to listen, was constantly in our space, pulled us everywhere – she pulled my left arm out of place on our first walk.
I couldn’t afford to have her trained off leash for under 700 down here in Houston- which right now it’s not in my budget. So I search around – saw Don’s DVD and the reviews – I visited his website and his YouTube page.
What sold me was who I believe is Archie? (the little black lab puppy who was incredibly well mannered and trained by 3 months old.) Incredible! If you haven’t seen it – go watch it! Incredible! I decided to order it- my husband and I sat down after dinner and watched it through and through.
We started to apply the techniques the next day when we went out for our walk, she wasn’t happy with me at first but she has knocked her pulling off and our walk is so much more pleasant! In just 2 walks our leash has become loose! She’s even remaining calm around joggers and kids playing at the park and normally she would drag me to them. We’ve been working on down and down and stay as well (she’s being a bit more stubborn with this – but she is getting there).
Sorry this was lengthy but I couldn’t resist writing a review in hopes it saves someone else’s arm.
I can’t thank you enough Don! Your training DVD saved our relationship with our dog!
We will continue to use this technique for any dogs or puppies we bring home! – Jim and Kayla Marquis
I have had great success with the system! No more pulling me off my feet or into trees and cars …. thank you! – Denise Mullen McDonald
This is amazing. I put it on my mastiff and it just seems so easy. It made me almost cry, for the sheer reason my 100lb dog was looking to me for what to do next. Thank you so much. I have watched Cesar Milan for years and did lots of things which helped me, but you can only use that “shs” sound so much before they stop listening, but this makes that final command without the leash in my hand. She was literally looking to me eye to eye with that look asking me what “I” wanted her to do and didn’t move without releasing her.
I had been working for almost a year with her training. She was right there at the end where I just couldn’t get over the hump of off leash and today I received this kit and to my amazement it worked perfectly right down to me being able to clip her nails. I am amazed when I watch the videos. I had my doubts but not anymore. – Tina Perry
I picked up The Perfect Dog Training system brand new, never opened at a rummage sale for five dollars. I had a wild dog and thought what the hell it’s only five dollars. I immediately placed the collar on my dog, watched the videos and jumped right into training my dog.
Well I will say this is the best five dollars I have ever spent. In one weeks time I have my crazy dog following the sit and down commands and walking without tugging or holding the leash. My dog is also somewhat skittish due to being abused as a pup. I have seen her confidence grow and she is more calm as she is now getting plenty of needed exercise to burn off all her energy. I am so grateful I took a chance and picked this up. – Deb Loop
Just started using this on our dogs she’s about a year and we’ve only had her about 5 months. Amazing results after just a few hours. I would recommend this to anyone. Makes it easy and enjoyable and we fit it in during the time that we have. – Teresa Halsey-Hollar
The system works! I worked with a foster puppy for 3 months and she was so good at everything. For us it was a game and she loved our communication as did I. Thank you for a great system!! – Suzanne DuBarry
Don’s system is the best way to train any dog young or old. I have a 7 month old puppy who is extremely energetic with Don’s training it makes it so easy by following the steps to teach essential commands to any dog owner and the best part I will be able to trust my dog with no leash restricting her and you could too!!
I can honestly say it’s extremely helpful to those who may have puppies/dogs who can seem hard to train. THIS WILL WORK !!!! If you have a dog you are thinking of giving up for adoption due to their behavior I ask you PLEASE try this first? It will change YOU and your DOG’s relationship and give you a loyal trustworthy companion for years to come! – Gene Fowler Jr.
My son has been watching your videos and is diligent in training his new puppy. This has resulted in a fabulous dog and family member! Thank you! – Brenda Pitlyk Howsmon
The Best and Only Training system you’ll ever need!!! No treats no bad habits just love and joy!!! With a lil discipline of course. – Josiah Suxo
Amazing system. Give it a try and you’ll never use anything else ever again! – Lee Paris Seibold
Great system! Worked on both my dogs in a heartbeat! I highly recommend! – Nicki Darden
I’ve used Don’s training methods with several Dobermans and had much success. – Gary Champagne
I’m a skeptic by nature. I’m a BELIEVER in this method!
I have 3 dogs and until recently, could only handle one at a time on walks. One of them also barks at visitors and at people on our walks.
Day 1: I worked with each dog individually in the backyard. I got 3 “downs” in a row with each almost immediately. Next was walking – correcting them took no time at all. I can walk them (individually still for now) with slack in the lead. The transformation using this training method is just unbelievable.
I’m also able to get all 3 dogs in the down/stay immediately. I’m working on down/stay while I’m moving about the house and need them out of the way. This morning was successful! And I was out of their sight for several minutes. One of them came looking for me, but I simply took her back to where she was and she laid back down (the other two were still in place).
Anyone who thinks the collar is cruel or hurts the dog just doesn’t know what they’re talking about. My dogs have never cried or whimpered when corrected. They simply stop what they are doing…or they obey the command. And I find that the collar corrections are getting fewer and far between.
I still can’t believe how simple this has all been. It takes dedication and time set aside, that’s for sure. But if you can spare even 15 minutes of your day, you will have the dog everyone wants. I loved my dogs before starting this training…and now I’m ENJOYING them even more!
Thanks Don! – Anita Lee
I bought the training collar almost 6months ago, and it seemed like almost immediately my dog changed. I’m still working on some things like separation anxiety but all in all my fur baby is perfect. I decided to put the collar on one of my other dogs and the results were immediate when it came to walking him, he is only 9 months old. Our 9 month old is my daughter’s dog and has no manners at all, so I’m hoping to get another collar for him so I can step in and train him myself. I absolutely love this system. – Lisa Stumpjumper Petersen
My husband and I have four kids. Our kids would always ask us if they could get a puppy or dog, and we would reply with, no. There was no way. They never listen. They don’t stay in the yard, they chew things up, they go to the bathroom in the house, they bark for no reason, they eat food off the counters. BOY WAS I WRONG!
There came an opportunity where a lady was not able to keep her great Dane/chocolate lab mix. My husband and I talked it over but we knew we had to figure out a training system. My sister had been using this for years and her dogs are very well behaved, so I had her come over the day we got our puppy, Kimber. We immediately started potty training/kennel training. Went absolutely amazing. 40 seconds after we got her we started leash training. I had her at zero pulling within four minutes! Concord that, then we went on to a down a sit in a stay.
I now take her wherever I can, in the stores in banks anywhere I can take her. LEASH FREE! It’s amazing how workers in the store will be completely fine with you bringing your dog that is that well trained. We now have two dogs that go everywhere with us. It’s fun to take them it is not a chore, which makes it so much easier! Seriously, thank you for bringing so much love into our house. – Jennifer Boone
Just started using the system today. I worked on pulling on the leash. My two large dogs (one German Shepard and one German Shepard mix) used to drag us everywhere, within about 10 minutes, maybe less, they were walking calmly and quietly beside me and my 16 year old daughter. Can’t wait to do more! – Mary Richards
I have used your Perfect Dog system to train my dog. People are amazed by how she is so well behaved. And I have told 100’s of people about the training videos and training aids.
My dog, Minieme, is a rat terrier/long hair chihuahua female. She acts like she is bigger than she really is, but she also saved my life. I use a Bipap for sleep apnea. One night it quit working and I wasn’t breathing. Minieme noticed and jumped on my chest to wake me up. In this case, I have registered her as a Service Animal.
People who professionally train service dogs are amazed at how well she behaves. Also, I would like to add that I have shown my dog the border of my one acre using your techniques. There is no visible line, but Minieme knows that it’s there and she won’t cross it unless I’m with her.
So, thank you for your training system. – Mike McCutchan
Dear Mr. Sullivan,
I love your System. It is well prepared and thought out, and highly effective. I am so impressed with it that I am planning to incorporate it into the animal shelter where I volunteer in the NWT, Canada. We get many large dogs, huskies, pit bulls, shepherds and many very small breed dogs. Most are abused and abandoned. Many have been raised in “puppy mill” type homes. I would like to start training them in the basics with your System and put them in better homes. I would also like to start training some of them with your advanced methods so they can be given as companion animals and eventually working dogs.
I found your DVDs to very well prepared and explained. And I like your gentle approach. I am teaching my children with your DVDs as well. It helps with our dog and with their lives in general. I am hoping to start a prison dog training program with your methods to help inmates (most often abused and abandoned) take control of their lives and learn forgiveness, patience and compassion. – Robyn H. Fort Smith, Canada.
I received the DVDs and equipment Saturday morning. BY SATURDAY AFTERNOON BEFORE LUNCH my lab no longer pulled on the leash, was staying in the down position until called, and was able to beautifully retrieve (which she has struggled with since birth). This program is easy and most of all, IT WORKS!!! Now I’m waiting for the next weekend to come because I’ll be introducing the distractions. Thanks Don. – Justin M. Mesa, Arizona.
I have two beautiful West Highland Terriers. Our oldest, Bailey, is 5, and we just got our little guy, Barkley (who just turned 1 in June) last October. All of our friends always said what a great dog Bailey was – and we thought it was because we had trained her so well. Wanting a playmate for her, we got Barkley, and quickly learned that it was Bailey’s submissive personality, not our training, that made her a “good dog”. Barkley was a terror….he chewed, he barked, he ran around our house like he was on fire. When he chewed the spindles on our staircase, my husband told me that I had to do something or Barkley was headed out the door. I was in tears; on the one hand, I have this dog, who even though he is a terror around the house, is also the most loving, sweet little guy when he wants to be; and on the other hand, my husband and I can’t bear to watch this crazy little dog tear our house apart!
I happened to see the infomercial for your training on TV a few weeks ago, and had considered it because of Barkley’s mischievous ways…after that conversation with my husband, I purchased your System. I received it 4 days ago.
The first thing I noticed was how much information your DVDs cover! As recommended, I watched the initial training segments on the DVD, and then set out on a walk to work on “Leash Pulling.” I was AMAZED that, in literally 5 minutes, my dog was walking with me without pulling! Even more amazing was the fact that when I would stop walking, he would also stop AND LAY DOWN! I couldn’t believe it. In 4 days, he has learned to walk without pulling on his leash, he has learned Down, Down and Stay (even while I throw his toy in front of him!), Retrieve, and Come. My husband can’t believe it.
Your philosophy on training is something I hadn’t heard before (most of the time you hear about training with treat rewards), but when I listen to Mr. Sullivan speak about the mind-set of dogs, it makes so much sense. To see the change in my dog in just 4 days is unbelievable – I can’t wait to see what we can accomplish in the next 4 days! If I had to pick my favorite part of this training so far, it was seeing the happiness on Barkley’s face last night as he got to play “Retrieve” with me for the first time ever – outside where he could run. I would recommend these DVDs to anyone and everyone with a dog. If my little terror can change so much in a matter of minutes, it can work for anyone!
Thank you, Thank you! – Jennifer W.
First, I would like to say THANK YOU! Your Systemrocks! I have tried many types of training for my 2 Labs and nothing has worked until I started your System. I was shocked and amazed that you weren’t lying when you said there would be a difference in only 5 minutes. I couldn’t believe it, but now I certainly do…Thank you so much for this System. My 5 year old son can finally play in the yard without me having to lock the dogs in their crates. – Gwendolyn
Don – The fact that your training DVDs have been so masterfully structured and concisely edited, and your instructions simply leave no doubt what is correct and what won’t work, has resulted in what I would consider, the best trained, freest dog I’ve ever been around! And that’s just in the first 6 months of her life, and the first 6 weeks since I bought your program.
When I was waiting for your disks to arrive in the mail, I saw a posted rate of $125 per hour for phone consulting on your site. I thought, “That’s good to know. If there are any gaps or special problems, I may have to pay, but I can get real, accurate answers. It’s not just, ‘good luck with your DVDs.’ ” Then after I got and watched the DVDs, I thought, “Wow! I can’t think of a single thing he left out or that I would ask. This guy has done a GREAT job of putting things together! It’s all there.” I almost went ahead and booked a phone consultation just to say thanks personally.
I spoke today with a friend of mine at work who has owned Labradors for years. I told her that my six month old dog can now do commands with incredible reliability. She can SIT, DOWN, STAY, WAIT, COME, SIT AT A DISTANCE, GO PEE, GO TO THE BATHROOM, and a couple of extra things like, we have a PLAY command that she just runs full speed around the back yard in circles, figure eights, etc. because she wants to. It was a behavior she enjoyed (she invented) while playing outside one time with a dropped leash, and now we say PLAY to let he know it’s okay if she wants to. Also, I have a THAT’S FAR ENOUGH command to tell her that she has wandered to a border and it’s time to turn back, but don’t worry about coming all the way back like a COME command.
After owning dogs for years, my friend was amazed at all my puppy can do, and so quickly! She says, “You sure got a smart dog.” I told her it’s not the dog, it’s Don Sullivan’s training. Around the office we’re all into photography and we have some of the world’s leading photographers on our staff. We all know a story about being at dinner and showing photos to others at the table when the waitress commented, “Those are great pictures! You must have a great camera.” When the check came, the photographer said to the waitress, “That was an excellent meal! You must have great pots.” – I think that really kind of covers it.
Sure, I have a great dog, but it’s mostly because of great training! – Larry B. Tampa, FL.
…I am a dog trainer and I can tell you that I have never seen anything that works better at training dogs quickly and effortlessly. It is simply amazing the way the collar works… – Dave C. Lincoln, CA.
I am writing to say that this training program is EXCELLENT! I have a 6 year old German Shepherd that has been running our household since she was a puppy. We were aggravated, tired, and at our wits end with her, and then I saw an infomercial for this product. I thought, well, I don’t have anything to lose, and I decided to try the program.
Unbelievably, I saw some results the day I started training! My husband thought I was a kook for buying these DVDs and he thought it would never work on our dog. Well, he was really surprised, and then he started watching the videos too. We are about 4 days in and already there has been a dramatic change in her attitude. I look forward to continuing her training and seeing the full results. I would recommend the program to ANYONE with an out of control dog. Thank you for putting these DVDs out there. Reading it in a book isn’t half as effective as watching the DVDs, so thanks again! – Nicole H.
I was home sitting and watching TV when I saw your advertisement on TV. I was skeptical at first, but with the 30 day money back guarantee I told myself I have nothing to lose. We have a 15month old aggressive, hyperactive and stubborn but gorgeous Yorky.
I received the Program two days ago. I immediately started with the training and am so pleased with the result. My Yorky has transformed into a totally submissive, well behaved dog in a matter of days. Our whole family is enjoying him so much more. He is so well behaved that I thought something was wrong with him. We are no longer hesitant in letting him move freely around small kids, and other dogs. We can now trust him and we can tell that he is so much happier as well.
Thank you so much. – Jeannette C.
I bought your perfect dog system a month or so ago, with no great expectations of it really working. My young dog was unresponsive to most commands (unless doing tricks for food), and was becoming increasingly aggressive towards larger dogs and strangers. I am BLOWN AWAY by the change in her! Her responses are immediate, and in most cases, consistent until I release her from the command. We’re still a work-in-progress, but her progress has amazed me. Thank you! – Matthew V. Akron, OH.
I just wanted to say THANK YOU DON! Just a week before I saw your infomercial, I was thinking of finding a new home for my dog. But now I am on day three and it’s like I have a new dog; a good dog! Thank you so much! I would buy this System if you are having troubles with your dog; it works! – Thomas
Dear Mr. Sullivan,
I just wanted to send you another email to let you know how wonderful your DVD and training methods have been for myself and my dog Rose. Rose is a Thailand Ridgeback and they are a rare dog in the United States and are known to be somewhat independent dogs. She came to me by air shipment from Maryland to Los Angeles. She came stuffed into a crate that was barely large enough to contain her. She was sick and terrified.
I was determined to train her from the minute we got her and I started right away. We were going to train her to stay in a crate but each time I placed her in the kennel she would defecate and then dig in it to spread it all over the crate. I made the crate smaller but nothing worked. After three weeks we gave up and tried to contain her in the kitchen with gates, she simply climbed or jumped over no matter how big a gate or blockade we erected. We finally gave in and she slept under our bed when we were away from the house. This set the tone for everything, she would sit and come sometimes, but she knew she was the boss, walking was a nightmare.
I have more collars than I can count, no pull, choke, halti, no pull harnesses. Nothing worked. I have several clickers and books, books on training including some from famous TV trainers. Nothing helped she pulled, pulled, pulled.
My daughter who has done a lot of research on dog training for her dog recommended your DVDs. This was after we left the dog to board for a few days at a veterinarians office and she attacked the staff, I was so concerned she would bite someone and that I would lose her.
Your DVDs are fabulous. The advice is so practical and effective…Our first walk was a learning period for both of us, by the second walk I had learned how to correct and the difference is amazing. No more sore shoulders and arms, no more being dragged across the street. We enjoy our walks together. I have Rose wear her collar and a shorter lead in the house and the difference is amazing, she seems calmer already. We are going to start down and stay in the next few days.
We did have a problem with your collar, but the customer service person I spoke to immediately ordered a new one for me. She was apologetic and sincerely concerned. I was surprised to get an email directly from you and then a phone call. To have such concern over quality and customer service is a rare thing in today’s business world. Thank you so much for your concern, advice and help. I am truly looking forward to the day Rose can walk off lead and we can be happy together as it should be with dog and owner.
Thanks so much! – Charla Van V. Los Angeles, CA.
I finally received my DVDs and I have been learning a lot. Don is wonderful! Ginger actually sits there and watches TV with me. It’s just too funny…Great product… – Valerie S. Ocean City, Maryland.
Thanks so much for everything. We have been using your system with great success… – Rob G. East Islip, NY.
Thank you for all your help with my dogs! It works because God has blessed you with wisdom and has anointed you with his Holy Spirit so you may prosper and bless others. Thanks!!! – Mary Ann R. Visalia, CA.
Don, we got the DVDs. Thank you very much. I took Shooter and Gunner for a walk in Brush this morning and they did very well. No pulling or barking. The dogs have been really good. Emily, my daughter, works with them both everyday and is watching your DVDs like a sponge. She will even take them out individually before school. It is great seeing her so excited…
My Dad watched me today and was smiling when my dogs did a down stay on his driveway. He was amazed at their being so responsive. He has babysat for us in the past and it always wore him out. 🙂 He was impressed and that is saying something. Thanks again. – Geri D. Snyder, CO.
I am absolutely thrilled after receiving this program and working with my 5 month old puppy for just 2 days!! There is very little information about this program on the web (besides this site) but I did find a brief discussion group at Amazon.com where I added my testimonial to the thread. As a dog owner for 25 years of my life (I’m 45) and a graduate of several dog training classes, I believe THIS 2DVD set was the BEST thing I could have done for my dog and my life. – THANK YOU just doesn’t cover it, but THANK YOU!! – Shelley
I am sooo thankful to you and your training system!! We became the proud owners of a “cute little Weimeraner” that soon became very dominant. We read all the books and thought we were educated and ready to train. Nothing worked. I couldn’t walk across the room without being attacked. People couldn’t/wouldn’t visit because she was so out of control. She is now a happy, calm puppy. We only wish we had known about your training system sooner. It would have saved us and our puppy, Gwennie, so much stress and unhappiness. Thanks, again, for the best training system available. I will be telling everyone we know about it. – Larry
Since I’ve had my Border Collie (it’s been about 9 months now), not ONCE had she walked by my side. Every single time I would take her for a walk she would be constantly pulling. Today I took her for a walk and applied Don’s techniques. She stopped pulling after 2 minutes and was walking like a normal dog for the remainder of our walk! – Cody
Oh my goodness…I thought long and hard about getting a puppy. My doc gave me one restriction, make it small. I want NO pulling on your back. I had fallen and crushed vertebrae and disks in my back, so with that and other problems I have, I go head over teacups very easy. I was in my new home now and alone and missed the companionship of my perfect dog, Tink. She passed away in the fire that took my home.
So when I sat down in the floor with a large group of pomeranian puppies rolling and playing around me, Luci melted my heart.
We started out ok. She dealt with the crate wonderfully but all hell was about to break loose. She did pee pee where she wanted, refused to do poo outside. Chews up every thing she can reach – shoes, mail, rubber tips on door stops, glasses, pens, you name it. Nothing is safe or sacred. No matter how hard I baby proofed she found away to get around it. She barks a shrill that shivers your bones, torments the cats, pulls on the leash, trips me and has separation anxiety like you wouldn’t believe, whines, cries, jumps, licks, nips, chews your hands. If you can name it, she does it.
Now I have read and searched the internet, tried the dog whisperer tips, received advice from friends, cried, screamed and was humiliated with her chewing up house guests’ personal items. I had reached the decision that Luci needed to go to a new home.
I was flipping channels and your infomercial popped up. I watched you change dogs in minutes. Truthfully I figured it was another trip down rip off drive. I looked at Luci and said okay, one more try, and I even did the $10.00 get it to me now!!! It was in my mail box when Luci and I arrived home from my 3 1/2 hour ride (one way) that we make every month to my doc. I watched DVD number one and looked at the collar and leashes and the ball. Then put it all in the box and went to sleep.
This morning, I watched the DVD again, then put the collar on Luci. Then watched some of the second DVD. I let Luci get adjusted to the new collar and dragging leash and went back to the first DVD. I felt that “down” and “stay” was the priority, sooooo here we go.
She took to the collar immediately. A light jerk and her eyeballs were big as saucers in shock, tug two and she was down and a strange new look was on her face. The demon was leaving. Then we did stay and needed the silent reminder tug. OMG. Who is this new dog? She has taken on a whole new body language. I was not frustrated and shaking. She was listening and cooperating. I called my ex husband and told him about the new program. We actually got to talk on the phone without her barking, biting, licking and jumping all over me.
WONDERFUL, FABULOUS, OUTSTANDING. This is Unbelievable!!! We have taken a walk around the property without the tug-of-war barking battle. You have saved my dog from being evicted from my home. I know that the rest of the training will go well. I have the companion I thought about when I brought her home. I just needed to be trained how to train her.
Thank you so much. I will recommend your system to everyone. I’m sure that Luci thanks you too. – Kathy
We ordered Mr. Sullivan’s program; skeptical, like so many other folks. It really works! Even our 10 year old daughter with a physical disability has been able to get our rowdy one year old doxie, Ellie, to behave much better! We have been working on the program as a whole family and I can tell you it makes a difference right away… – Kelly
After working with your program for just a couple of weeks, I have realized the difference in not only my dog, but the way I feel about him. He is no longer just a pet; he is now another member of the family. Rather than leaving him at home because it’s just too much of a pain to take him, he gets to come with us pretty much everywhere.
When I take him on his nightly walks, I have gone from dreading the walks because of being so exhausted from him pulling on the leash the whole time, to us not even using the leash most of the time. Due to some rather severe back injuries, taking my dog on walks was something that I could not do very often – even though he is a small Jack Russell, he spent the whole walk just yanking fiercely the leash, which caused me so much pain. Now he heals without even being on the leash.
I still have some work to do on him, but even my family was amazed today. They have been in Europe for the past month and did not know that I had purchased your training System. Every time that they came over before leaving for Europe, my dog was jumping up on them and was just a terror. They came over today and got here a bit early; we were not home yet, so they just let themselves in. By the time we got home, they were asking if he was sick, or if something was wrong with him, since he was no longer jumping all over them and being a complete pain. They were almost dumbfounded to find out that simple training had made such a huge and positive change in him. Thanks Don. – David C. Lincoln, CA.
I have a 4 month old Bluetick Hound. I’ve been using your method with him for about two weeks. I am amazed; he no longer pulls on the lead at all, he automatically goes to the sit position when we approach a cross street and when I stop walking, and he immediately comes to my side and sits without verbal or hand commands. We have started working on the heel command and he seemed to understand what was wanted within about 10 minutes. Fantastic System, fantastic results. Thank You. – Carl F.
I am very happy after receiving this program and working with my 14 month old golden retriever puppy. It was not more that 10 Minutes on the first day and he was not pulling the leash. I love the program… – Chuck
DEAR SIR. AMAZED IS WHAT I AM. IT’S SO WONDERFUL NOT TO HEAR MY DOG EVERY MINUTE OF THE DAY. FOR ANY NOISE, SHE WOULD BARK, BARK. NOW SHE HAS COMPLETELY DONE A TURN AROUND. THANK YOU SO MUCH. I’M NOT WELL , SO IT’S STEP BY STEP. I FORSEE NO PROBLEMS. THANK YOU. – DANIELLE
I just bought your system as I have heard excellent feedback from others who have used it. I have a 9 week old Lhasa Apso. Thanks for such a wonderful system – I am excited to get the system and help my baby be on her best behavior – it is too easy to spoil our babies and help create bad habits. That’s why I like this system – so we can both learn together! Thank you! – Lori
I have received Don’s DVDs, it works perfect! I love it and so does my dog! Thank you for this program. I appreciate all you have done. – Guy
I recently ordered this for my mom’s dog…so far it’s working great. – Enza
I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – Rana
A true God send! – Clare
My Mom ordered the collar for my dog Ranger, a 130 lb lab/newfoundland mix. It’s working beautifully. – Tina
Love the DVDs. It has helped me a lot and I have only had the program a few days. My dog is a 138 lb lab and I did order the large dog system. This system is awesome. Thanks. – Jason
This is really great, one of the best $60.00 I have ever spent! It is taking time, my fault, it is me that has to be trained more than the dog!! But very very good! I am enjoying this and so is my dog!! – Darcel
I think this training system is great! – Klaudia
I have a little 9 month old westie female. Although one of my last dogs was a westie, it took him his full first year to really settle down and learn the basic commands. Even then, I couldn’t ever trust him completely to listen to me. Holly has been treat trained and does well – as long as you have the treat. Walking her on a leash was awful as she was constantly pulling looking for squirrels and chipmunks. I have had the command collar about two weeks and within minutes, she did not pull on her lead. She listens and obeys now when I give her the basic commands – without a treat. Now we’re going to start on the problems, like chasing our 3 cats. It is great and when I get done with this email, I am going to order another set for my daughter… – Phyllis
When I ordered this I worried that it was a gimmick, but was desperate to change my dogs’ behaviors. I watched the DVDs right away and felt encouraged. I put the collars on this morning and I am seeing a change with in 3 hours…only 2 corrections and no jumping on the next group of people! No barking or jumping when we were coming in and out of the house at lunch at my parents! I have high hopes and I am ordering 2 more sets for my parent’s dogs now. – Jen
I purchased the “perfect dog” kit on August 12/08 and was very happy with the results of using the command collar and freedom lines in order to control my shepherd’s aggressive behavior towards other dogs while leashed. – Karin
To Don Sullivan –
You have given us back our life! I wish we had your training program months ago! We got an Old English Sheepdog pup from a breeder who had the pup returned at 11 weeks old because the owners could not control her. We picked her up fine, but after two days hell broke loose. She was aggressive, arrogant and way out of control. My hands and arms were so sore from the biting and scratching. Even though I could have cried, I wasn’t going to because she would have won.
We went to dog training classes, but after ten months the improvement was only slight, and it was exhausting because she did not listen (they used the talk-to-the-hand method). Over this period of time we had thought about giving her up, but we knew she would probably end up in a rescue for the rest of her life. Your Command Collar has given us a voice that she can’t ignore and she has improved greatly. We are now getting compliments on such a well trained dog. – Sarah Reading. Berkshire, Great Britain.
Don, I bought your Secrets to Training the Perfect Dog program and it has worked better than anything I’ve ever tried. I have an 8-month-old Lab/German Shepherd mix. He would constantly run into the woods and to other houses to see other dogs every time we would turn our backs. Also, every time we played fetch with him he would run off with his toy, and it would be gone forever. And, if he started to run off and I tried to call him back, he would not even think about obeying. Now, every time I call him, even if he is playing with other dogs, he returns to me.
I tried treat training but he would not listen to me if he knew I did not have a treat in my hand, and it took a month to teach “Sit.” But still, even when I had treats he would constantly run off. After a few weeks of using your methods at only 15 minutes a day during the week and a little more on the weekends, I have taught him to Sit, Down, and Stay (which is really impressive and very useful). And, I can work outside and around the house for 12-14 hours and he will never leave our front yard. It is such a relief to not have to chase our dog and worry about him all the time. I can not wait to continue this System. He is really the dog I always wanted right now and I can’t imagine in a few more weeks… – Jeremy. Blacksburg, South Carolina.
Don, my girlfriend has a Maltese named Teddy. He is five months old and I thought that he was either stubborn or retarded because he refused to cooperate. When her dad sent her your Perfect Dog DVDs and kit, I thought, “Oh boy, some hippie is going to tell me about dog psychology and compromises with dogs, etc.” I was wrong. After watching the first DVD, I have seen marked improvements in Teddy’s behavior in only 2 days! I don’t care what anyone else says, your PROGRAM IS AWESOME! That Command Collar is also amazing. You truly are the DogFather! – Daniel. Atlanta, Georgia.
