“I would love to work on being able to walk my dog without him being so afraid, pulling, and barking. I would say this is my highest priority. I am currently unable to work outside of the home because he has never learned to be away from me (he was a puppy in pandemic). I cannot be away for more than 2hrs before he starts crying.
I would love to be able to leave the house for longer periods of time and hopefully be able to get a job outside the home. I would say this is my second top priority. I would also like to be able to have people over to my house with mooshi not jumping all over them. I would also love it if I could get him to stop barking at the door. “
We also talked on the phone on some tips about carting.
I was referred to Carla on a Facebook post and contacted her after I read many positive reviews about her. Our 9 month old puppy, Bentley, was way too rambunctious and had starting acting a little scared and aggressive when he was frightened. He was also horrible on walks, when people came into the house, etc.
After Bentley stayed with Carla over one weekend he came back much better behaved (not perfect but we are still working on it).
He is so much better during walks and has calmed down in the house during the day. He now willingly goes into his crate to relax, and is much better at following instructions. We are still in the training process, so while Bentley is not completely trained yet, I am surprised at how much advancement he’s made in such a short time. I will update this review once we are a little farther into the process.

His owners live in Rockville, MD and we did the Obedience Jumpstart program to work on his leash manners and reactivity to dogs. Here is what the owner said in her intake form “Being able to socialize with people (like when we are out on walks or someone comes in the door) and other dogs normally and without freaking out”Carla (Owner and Head Trainer of FluentDogs)
We’re not there yet but working on it in follow-up private lessons. In the Obedience Jumpstart I just get the dog started on a few things over a weekend. For him we worked on Place, behavioral down, and leash skills.
