We come to you and conduct the sessions with you and your dog in the privacy of your own home.
My training methods consist of a combination of classical and operant conditioning, using positive reinforcement. I follow the Least Intrusive, Minimally Aversive (LIMA) Effective Behavior Intervention Policy, as explained on this page here.
I have earned a CDTK (Certified in Dog Training Knowledge) through the Master Course, as well as a Certificate in Dog Training and Behavior through the Core Skills Course at Catch Canine Trainers Academy.
The dynamics for training every dog and owner are different. The first step to offering our services is to evaluate your dog, how you are currently training them, and propose a plan of action.
All rates, programs, and training are customized for your dog and goals. Please use our contact form to get your custom rate quote and availability to train your dog.
We work with most breeds of dogs and puppies. Occasionally, there are dogs we will be unable to train, due to aggression or training requests beyond our scope of practice. We will know during a brief phone conversation if your dog is a good fit for our dog obedience training and we will be up front and honest about the recommended steps to train your dog. We do not offer specialty training such as service dogs, guard dogs, or K9 dogs.
The initial consultations are between 60-90 minutes, and each dog training or behavior modification session is 60 minutes.
It is unethical to offer a guarantee of your dog's behavior because you can NEVER guarantee the behavior of any living being. We can't even predict our own behavior with 100% accuracy in any given situation, let alone an animal of another species. As a dog trainer in good standing, I willingly pledge NOT to offer a guarantee of your dog's behavior.
I WILL GUARANTEE professional customer service, punctuality, and a commitment to helping you the best I can to reach your dog's goals. I will always be accessible to answer any questions after the training is complete, either by phone, email or through my online community at PuppyTraining.dog.
