Pooches: Curtis Scott "Pitbull Whisperer"

We cannot say enough about Curtis Scott, Chicago Dog Trainer. We call him our personal pit bull whisperer. Mr. B had a hard time adjusting to Chicago living when we first adopted him. During walks, he would keep darting back and forth and pull on the leash. In addition, we were captives in our house, because he would keep whistling and barking in his crate whenever we left his sight. It would be ideal to leave him and Miss M alone in the house, but with two big dogs you never know what condition your house would be when you get home. So after a week of being captive at home 24/7 we called Curtis for his help with Mr. B. In our first session, he worked with Mr. B for 5 min and after that Mr. B was a changed dog. All of a sudden, we had loose leash walk whenever we walked him and he stayed to our left. In our second session, we worked on his isolation distress. Initially, we thought it was separation anxiety, but Curtis quickly evaluated that Mr. B had isolation distress which could be quickly resolved, but also could quickly become separation anxiety. In this session, Curtis required more time with Mr. B, about 10 min. Now Mr. B either sits quietly in his crate or sleeps and patiently waits for us to come home. We owe much of our summer to Curtis. Even though both session required a total of 15 min of work, he would talk to us for hours to explain everything that he has done and answered all of our questions. In two days he worked with us for well over 2 hours, but his price was extremely reasonable, so it was clear to see that he really is in it for the dogs. We highly recommend Curtis and we know he can do wonders for you and your dog. Also, Curtis works closely with Unleashed, which we use for all our day care, boarding and dog walking needs. They are very knowledgeable about dogs, especially bullies and they work very hard to make our dogs and us happy. Also, its nice to have Curtis there at times to help supervise their day care and boarding. So if you have any doggy issues, please contact Curtis Scott, he will change both you and your dog's lives.

Hey guys, I'm commenting on an old post because I didn't see an email address on your blog. I don't know if you noticed, but that "Stop Making Excuses" poster has some really messed up blogs. I thought might want to know in case you want to delete the comment so no traffic gets driven that way ...

Your recon Curtis has any clones in the DC area? If you are still in touch with him, would you be willing to ask if he knows any great trainers down in our parts who can deal with typical bully issues (stubbornness, prey drive, dog selectivity)?
I would love for our puplets to be as well-behaved as yours :)
