How often does training take place?
Typically most clients start with bi-weekly or monthly depending on their dogs needs and their schedule.
Do you allow questions/support between lessons by email?
Where is training held?
The majority of the lessons are held at your home. I travel to you!
How long does it take to achieve results?
This completely depends on the dog, and the owner. The training involves teaching you to teach your dog, so the practice/work is up to you! It also depends on the severity of the behavior needs of the dog. Dogs that struggle with fear/aggression can take months, whereas a dog that needs to learn basics (sit, stay, etc) can take a week or two. There is no definitive answer to this as there are many variables that influence the training process.
What type of training do you offer?
All training is science-based. Use of shock collars, prong collars, e-collars, choke chains, force or intimidation is prohibited. Use of treats, toys, praise, and positive physical touch is utilized during the training process. Every lesson covers the education behind using current dog training techniques. Please see “Force-free?” for more information!
Can we practice at the store or somewhere in public?
Yes! Anytime you want to implement training outside of your home we can always meet near your home at a local pet friendly establishment! Home Depot, Lowes, Tractor Supply, any pet store, public parks, etc. are all places appropriate for training practice! This is like a regular lesson, but in a different setting.
