Our family has 2 children with autism and spent months researching service and therapy dogs for the kids. After deciding we did not want to wait a few years (or raise the funds for a number of the providers) we decided to adopt a wonderful year-old lab-mix from our local shelter (Sunny). He had a sweet, gentle, temperament and was wonderful with our children, but needed basic obedience training. We turned to Josiah and could not be more pleased with the results. Sunny returned after 2 months of "Boot Camp" and his basic commands (sit, stay, heel, wait, place and come) have been great ever since. He is a pleasure to walk! At first I was a little apprehensive about sending Sunny away for training, but our communication with Josiah was excellent and helped ease away any of my initial anxiety. While Sunny was at camp, Josiah sent us weekly updates on his progress along with wonderful pictures of his training sessions. He was highly knowledgeable, genuinely cared about sunny, and went out of his way to customize our program. Josiah worked with Sunny at his facility as well as out in the community, which was important to us. Not only did he work on obedience, but treadmill training (conditioning) and socialization skills. Time to play and socialize with other dogs was included in the daily routine, and it is apparent, as Sunny is friendly with all dogs and people. We are so grateful. When we picked Sunny up, Josiah spent time teaching us to handle him and gave us a great packet of information on his training techniques that we could refer to. He also created a DVD for us of him working with Sunny, which has been a great resource (and a fun keepsake). We are looking forward to meeting with him for our follow-up sessions and further customizing the skills for Sunny that are important to our family. Thanks to Josiah, Sunny passed his Good Canine Citizenship and Therapy Dog International exams and has visited our local schools and hospitals. He is a wonderful companion to our children and is a joy to have in the house as well as out in the community. We highly recommend Newman K-9 Academy and are thankful to Josiah for all the time he spent helping us with Sunny. We feel the investment we made will be paying off for the next 10+ years of his life.
