Lyla, the Doberman mix

James Clay
Blacksburg, VA

Lyla has turned into (almost) a model dog!  She enjoys learning and her trick repertoire has expanded greatly. More importantly, past the tricks, we communicate quite well in both directions now and even on new things, she figures it out. I usually think to write and thank Dr. Maxwell when we're walking past another dog that is barking and pulling while Lyla walks past, ears up and interested but well-behaved. More recently she has even surprised us by greeting a few people that reach out to her gently and welcoming. She is such a pleasure to be with out in public. While we always enjoyed her ourselves, it is nice that friends and others now get to see the dog we love. I really appreciate Dr. Maxwell's time with us on dog (and probably mostly human) training. The result is fantastic!
