I had Michelle Osbourne who lives in Liverpool NY help me with my dog. She charged us 350 dollars for six park lessons and one week of our dog staying at her apt. Well, she took our money and made our dog even more aggressive. Her advise was to use treats for everything.
Yesterday my dog was on counter eating some leftovers, and when I reached to stop him, he bit really me. He kept shaking my hand like a rag doll.
Michelle's taught us that the reason she recommends treats for everything is so our dog isn't as treat motivated and would leave our counters alone. Made sense at the time but it totally backfired.
She also told us to hold hot dogs and wave it in front of our dog when he charges at other dogs and this never worked either.
We trust Michelle with our dog, as she came highly recommended by the shelter and now we have to put our poor dog down. Michelle also goes on line by the nickname of "Crysania" and sometimes as "Katie" and her web site is TheSpottedTongue.com
When we called to ask for our money back, she kept hanging up on us and told us that eventually, dogs do what dogs gonna do.
Please stay away from this monster. She seemed very nice at first and her training theory was all based on removing all bones, all toys, and to never ever say NO to our dog. Yeah. That sure makes a lot of sense.
Michelle Osborne's latest address where she took our dog was at:
129 Kings Park Dr Apt G
Liverpool, NY 13090-2729
Her phone number is 315-487-0758
My husband is now convinced that our dog is ruined and it needs to be put down immediately. How could I have been so naive. We are all devastated and can't stop crying.
