I have brought my six year old Labrador, Hollie, to training for three nine week courses. Although she is a magic dog with a very strong will, she lacked discipline and would do as she liked around our house.
After the first course she was responding to simple commands.
After the second course she was becoming more easy to handle and after the third she was a very different dog.
We can now take her anywhere and have her under complete control.
Sunday mornings are now a treat, we only have to say "training" and she is at the front door, eager to jump in the car.
