Before beginning any dog training program, I will evaluate your dog to determine his or her personality type, aptitude, social development, behavioral patterns and any potential problems.
We will then discuss your goals for your dog and recommend the best training program for your dog. I will teach the core elements of changing behavior in dogs and explain how these can help you.
During the evaluation I will detail the programs available for training your dog. I will be the one working with you or training your dog, I don’t believe in passing you off to a junior instructor.
The cost of the evaluation is $50 and if you decide to sign up that is applied to the training program you choose.
Once you choose the program you want... we get to work! The FOUNDATIONS to FUNCTIONAL Curriculum covers the 5 Basic Commands (SIT, DOWN, WALK, COME & PLACE) and Manners (GREETINGS, GROOMING & SELF-CONTROL). I train to the AKC-CGC Standard and all clients are recommended to achieve this standard.
The FREE DOG Curriculum takes all of the above and adds an "off leash" capability for more freedom for your dog.
All clients receive access to my online video series to help reinforce the lessons and also provide a resource as you move through the program and after.
Once the program is successfully completed I offer lifetime support via phone, text, email and if necessary more lessons.
The "Foundations to Functional" Private Lesson Program consists of Six 1-hour Private Lessons every two weeks over the span of 2 to 3 months. Due to the flexibility of lessons, this program can be tailored specifically to the dog and client based on information gathered in the evaluation. Some clients choose to move on to complete the "Free Dog" Advanced Curriculum upon graduation.
Get started right with your new puppy! The first 6 months can make or break a dog. This is the course that ensures a successful start and a promising future for your puppy!
The PUPPY FOUNDATIONS Private Lesson Program consists of 1-hour Private Lessons every two weeks over the span of 2 months and follows your dog from wild puppy to trained teenager.
Our board and train program typically consists of 3 weeks where your dog will live with me and interact with my family and my dogs. I will personally take your dog through the entire "Foundations to Functional" Program and include the "Free-Dog" Advanced Program and then follow that up with Private Lessons to make sure you understand your dog's new skills.
You will receive constant updates throughout the process as well.
The online learning option allows you to complete the "Foundations to Functional" Program at your own pace through the online course with individual coaching sessions from me.
Group classes are typically offered in Spring, Summer and Fall sessions. It is a small group setting (usually no more than 4-5 dogs) and allows for individualized attention and meets once a week for 8 weeks.
I cover the "Foundations to Functional" Program and train to the AKC-CGC Standard.
