"I am so grateful I found HEX dogs! We got our rescue, Lacey, when she was three months and even though my husband and daughter were ready for it, I had many months of being extremely stressed, unhappy, and just overall had a very hard transition to having a puppy as I had never had one before. I was afraid, frustrated, and didn't feel we were bonding well. Right away after emailing Cassie, I knew HEX was the place for us. I had no idea what we would do but they were willing to work with me who needed so much confidence and to stop crying almost daily and I knew I was ready to do whatever they asked.
"First time we met Greg, I cried. I was so frustrated and he said it was "OK" but it had to stop as Lacey was feeding off of it. Before jumping to frustration and tears, take a deep breath and shoulders down. I thought "of course!" but never had been able to do it. With our first short meeting, I had a better way to walk Lacey and manage some things that were difficult for me. Already I felt a bit better. We took Basic O and it was fabulous! I needed someone to tell me what they saw, what I was doing right and what needed work. Our last place always said I was doing it right, and when I look back that wasn't helpful as it didn't help me learn from my mistakes. I learned in our class with Cassie to take charge, let the dog know I am the one to listen to, not give in, give praise when needed, and not to be afraid or nervous when she did something out of sorts.
"Basic O ended and we are now in CGC [passed as of this writing -CS] and I'm thrilled. Our whole house is calmer, I'm calmer, the dog is calmer, we're all happier. Lacey listens to commands and walks beautifully now on our nightly outings. She and I have a bond now that I really don't think would have happened had we not stated at HEX. HEX is committed to helping us and I'm committed to doing my training process, which has made our bond even closer. If you saw me in August with tears and how close we were to giving her up, you'd be amazed at how it's changed. I want to cuddle with her, get kisses, see her wiggly butt say "Hi" to me when I come home, and we even took family pictures with her in them. I can say we now have a family that has a family dog and I admit...I just love her with all my heart."
I am so very proud to call these guys clients, and honestly, HEX Family. Talk about dedication. Megan really overcame a lot with this dog who was overwhelming her to developing the most awesome relationship. They are enrolled in Rocking Dog set to begin this Sunday, and if you had met them in the beginning... lol... this is MAJOR. Couldn't be more proud of you guys & I know your Pa couldn't either.
