When she was 7 months old, we enrolled her in the 1-month Bootcamp program. We were mainly going on faith—we knew that Mark and Irina were fantastic with dogs and that they had given us better advice thus far than any dog trainer we had encountered. The result was exactly what we were hoping for—and even more.
Winnie is hands-down the best-trained dog we’ve ever owned. We have transferred all of Mark and Irina’s techniques to our home, and she has been so much fun. Our daughters (ages 5 and 2) have developed a much better relationship with Winnie—they no longer view the dog as a competitor. Winnie doesn’t steal their food or toys, knock them over, or play rough. Sometimes I still can’t believe the changes in her. So simple, but I’m amazed how she always comes immediately when I call her name (inside or outside). She understands that “no” means “no.” She has been a dream on walks. No pulling. She still gets excited when we pass another dog, but I know I can control her. After we initially brought Winnie home from Bootcamp, I had a couple incidents while walking her when she wasn’t responding to corrections. I got in touch with Mark at Red Star right away, and he came out to our house and did a “real-world” walk with us. Immensely helpful. After that, I’ve had no issues walking her.
We had no previous experience with electric collars. After using one under Mark and Irina’s guidance, we have only positive things to say about them. There’s no more yelling, no more negative physical corrections, etc. It’s a much more peaceful household with this e-collar.
To sum up, we had first-rate dog training with Mark and Irina, and we are grateful to them for bringing out the best in Winnie.
