It's important that you let Tanzi know upfront if your dog has bitten anyone with as many details as possible. ​Certain cases of aggressive or anxious behavior may require medical workups and a meeting with a veterinarian and/or veterinary behaviorist before we can proceed with behavior modification coaching sessions. I may not be able to help with all cases but will help you connect with the right specialist as needed.

"Tanzi has been a lifechanger! My husband and I purchased 2 packages through Tanzi, and our 2-year-old rescue pup's behavior has changed significantly. He is so much more manageable now! We are even receiving comments from our neighbors about how much better behaved he's become. I'll admit I was skeptical at first because we tried everything we knew how to do on our own for an entire year with little behavioral change, but then we brought in Tanzi and she really filled in the blanks and helped us to understand Sammy's needs and how he communicates. Without Tanzi, I don't know how long it would have taken us to even realize that our dog needed pharmaceutical support. She walked us through every thing we didn't understand or weren't familiar with, and with our permission she even communicated directly with our vet, which helped loads. Our Sammy is now much more comfortable in his own skin, much less hyper-vigilant, and performs more regularly within our expectations. Tanzi taught us a variety of skill sets that we can use going forward for continued success in training. We would highly recommend Tanzi especially when you have reached your wits' end and just want your dog to act like a dog!
