  I have a 16 months old mix-Malinois male adopted from a shelter when he was 3-4 months. He had been abandoned in the street, so seeing him playing happily with other dogs was just beyond words, knowing what he had gone through at such a young age.

Inevitably, time goes by and he turned into a 45 kilos adolescent dog. From a dog who'd play with just about every other dog he turned into a dominant male who'd bark frantically at other males passing by, started jumping on me and on visitors, was constantly pulling on the lead, an extremely fussy eater, to mention just a few problems. The walks became deeply distressing times instead joyous moments to spend outside.

At the point in time when a friend of mine indicated Marina's website, I was literally being walked by the dog and the dog was making all the decisions, indulging me every now and then.

Marina's prompt and confident reply to my email gave me hope, however, as her genuine concern for both the dog's and the owner's welfare were immediately obvious.

We made an appointment and for over 5 hours she explained the principles of AB and demonstrated the whys and the hows of the method. I had read Jan Fennell's book and by the time of the consultation watched the DVD, at Marina's recommendation. Nonetheless, seeing Marina working with my dog on the AB principles, seeing with my eyes the dog's reactions to what Marina was signaling him made a huge difference.

I got to work. The results were immediate: my dog who'd been a very fussy eater for a year began to eat what and when I gave him. He continues to do so to this day. After several weeks of in-house training, I was able to take him on short walks around the house without him pulling almost at all and paying significantly more attention to me.

I also had the opportunity of observing his behaviour changing if I did not stick to the AB principles, also when visitors stayed in our home for a while.

To make a long story short, I honestly cannot thank Marina enough for all her work. My dog is a tough nut to crack and we've still got a long way ahead. I lost track of phonecalls and emails sent to Marina. She was always there, no exception. If she felt the explanation I provided was not clear enough, she would come back to me asking her questions and further advising on what and how to do next. I can also say in all honesty that I would not have managed without Marina's input, and this is not advertising, it's the plain truth.

Not only do I highly recommend her expertise, but the commitment to her work, the inquisitive approach, the resourcefulness in finding a solution to any problem would speak for themselves, if given an occasion. All for the joy of having a relaxed dog at home and an owner happy his dog is relaxed.

One last thing that left a deep imprint in my mind: one day I met a lady in the street, with her dog. The dog was obviously terrified by cars, to the point to which his whole body was shaking forcefully. Even his lips were shaking. He did not dare walk towards the edge of the sidewalk, he was crouching (and still trembling). I asked the lady what was the problem with the dog and her reply was: "He's just terrified with cars, always has been." Leaving, I could not help feeling extremely sad for the dog who had to face what he perceived as a deadly danger two times a day. If any human being had to endure such a frightful experience two times a day, people would react. But a dog is "just" afraid of cars.

So thank you, Marina, for all your commitment and hard work to have happy and relaxed dogs (not to mention owners) at home!
