Dealing with reactive and aggressive dogs is very dangerous and difficult. Many dogs we see with aggression come to us when other methods and trainers in their area have failed. In fact, with a lot of our clients and some of our rescued dogs, we are the last resort before Euthanasia. We are proud to say that we can provide solutions for every dog. Unleashed Potential’s clients have found success for their dogs through our safe, humane, balanced training programs. In 2011, 64% of our clients came to us with aggression problems. Ted Efthymiadis of Unleashed Potential Halifax, NS presents this video outlining the types of aggression our trainers see every day in dogs and how our programs will help and unleash your dog’s potential ! Aggression, behaviour problems, basic and ultimate obedience programs available: Professional board and train or do it yourself with expert tools and training!

- Dear Unleashed Potential, I wanted to write and say a Huge THANK YOU!! for all of your help with Ginger. As you know, before we met you, we worked with TWO other dog trainers and felt like we had tried everything. 100% positive reinforcement training, and then correction based methods. Despite all of our work with her, Ginger was still almost impossible to walk because she would bark and lunge at dogs, growl at children, and bark at anyone who tried to speak to us on the street. It was so bad that we would get up before dawn so we could walk her when no one else was around. We had pretty much given up until I found your website.
Since starting to work with you we have seen such amazing progress!
I never thought I would say that I now enjoy walking our dog, and after going through private, semi private classes and now group classes, I am beyond shocked to say that we are now working with her off leash at the park!
We still have work to do, but it is most notable is that Ginger seems to be building confidence and really seems like a happier dog. Our dog that used to be scared of everyone and everything, is becoming more curious and outgoing. It’s really remarkable to see. Throughout this process, I have been very impressed with your ability to match your recommendations to the individual needs of each dog. You truly care about dogs and their owners. Keep up the great work Ted, and thanks again!

By Ted Efthymiadis, UPK9 Halifax Certified Professional Dog Trainer.
In July 2012, I adopted a senior dog, Jessie. Her story was that her owner had died suddenly and her companion dog had been sold. Jess, as a Rotti mix, was considered surplus to her owner’s family, who suggested to the two ladies who were looking after her that she should be euthanized. It had been in my mind that I needed an older dog to get me back out walking and to be a companion when my husband was away looking after ailing relatives in Ontario. Unfortunately, although Jess and I became attached to each other, she bit my husband when he came home from Ontario and he chose to correct her physically. I was very, very upset. My new best friend bit my oldest best friend.
I had heard about Duke Ferguson and his training skills from a colleague and when Ted, the UPK9 trainer in Halifax, recommended board and train with Duke in PEI, it was clearly an excellent way to find a solution. I had decided that, should Jess be unable to be trained, she should not be passed on to become someone else’s problem. Jess spent 5 weeks with Duke and has been home for several weeks. She is a calmer, more settled animal and I have learned how to be a better dog manager. Our walks are delightful. She occasionally will bark to greet other dogs. She no longer reacts to people, joggers, cyclists or vehicles on our busy street where it seems the world and his neighbour all come to workout! She walks to heel very well, with the occasional determined sniff at something in the leaves too tempting to pass by. She and my husband are still wary of each other but I am sure that, given time and due care by myself to avoid a recurrent conflict between them, we will all settle into a nice blend of pet and people. She is a great companion, saw the election results out with me and my little cat last night. Thanks to Duke and his staff for teaching both Jess and myself how to conduct ourselves in a safe, non disruptive way as we share our home and surroundings with others!
