"I can’t thank Alex enough for all the help he has given my family and me with our Australian Cattle Dog mix, Cayde. Cayde is very high energy, smart and protective. Having only raised sweet, people-pleasing guide dogs before, we were unprepared for what Cayde had to offer upon rescuing him. The first thing Alex gave us was hope. He worked with us and taught us how to work with a dog like Cayde and today we continue to be amazed at the level of obedience we get from this dog. I personally didn’t think it could happen. I also feel very confident handling my dog and that when things get tense, he and I both know that I am in control and he is not. Alex has also spent time working directly with m sons and helping them to grow and understand in confidence with Cayde. I tell everyone I can about Alex and DFDI and highly recommend him."
