Fee:   To be determined after the dog has been evaluated.  Fees vary depending on what your dog already knows,  what he still needs to learn,  and the severity of issues.  

Equipment & Training styles - Explanation of different types of training equipment & styles used, including the Implementation and Importance of the Crate and its uses and functions.  All training is done in a Focus Based, Fun, and Motivating Manner.

Equipment Needed - It would be best to allow me to fit your dog up with an equipment set up that will best work with your particular dog.  This way we only need to purchase it once.   I have everything I need here and prefer using the German HS product line. 

Attire -  Wear comfortable clothes and appropriate foot wear to class.    No sandals, flip flops, heals, etc.... 

The Alpha Position: The full Explanation of the Alpha, or Pack Leader.  Respect = good leadership techniques over time.

Homework -  Practice is what brings success.  The class is for the purpose of teaching you how to train.  The dog learns through repetition of the exercises. 

**To Achieve Success it usually takes five days of training per exercise, the amounts of time vary depending on the dog and the exercise.

Absences - Let me know - a make-up session will be arranged.

Building Block Approach -  Each weeks work lays a foundation for the next week.     In order to progress dog must be ready for the next lesson.  Homework.

Questions -  Ask questions whenever you are confused.  If you run into a problem, call.

Patience & Tone of Voice -  Dog training is the formation of communication between dog and owner.  Dogs don’t understand words until we teach them.  Messages they get come from demeanor and tone of voice.

            Example:  Praise tone              (Demonstrate with “Good Dog”)

                 Command tone        (Demonstrate with “sit” and “down”)

                 Reprimand tone       (Demonstrate with “ah, ah” and “stop”)

Praise vs. Petting -  “Praise your dog” means verbally praise. 

Problem Solving:
 We look into the difficulties that owners are having with their pets and works to resolve these problems through training. Some of the problem solving areas we focus on are:
  • Excessive barking
  • Jumping up
  • Digging
  • Chewing
  • Biting, mouthing, nipping
  • Aggression towards people and/or animals
  • Pulling 
  • General destructive behavior
