A dog’s body language and physical cues, environment, exercise, nutrition, routine, and socialization history, and typical behavioral patterns must always be taken into account and considered to ensure that their needs are being met. Training is the most effective when all of these factors are taken into consideration to make sure the dog is getting the best foundation to start with. Often, training issues can be mitigated by meeting your dog’s needs in addition to practicing behavior modification. It is my goal to make sure that my client’s dogs have the best life they can.
Each individual dog I work with is assessed and assigned training methods according to their individual traits and your training goals. During our first appointment, we will discuss your dog’s environment, routines, history, and training goals to ensure that the training curriculum is comprehensive and prioritizes training items.
Paid clients are sent a typed writeup of the notes, homework, and a breakdown of training items we went over after each. Clients are offered unlimited access to email or phone support- even after our training sessions have been completed.
All training sessions after the initial 75-minute sessions are one-on-one private sessions lasting 45 to 60 minutes and may include up to four dogs. Most training sessions are held in the client’s home but training sessions may be held in public locations such as a park or dog park.
