What to Expect
Sometimes humans become frustrated when their initial concern isn’t immediately addressed:
- A dog that jumps.
- A dog that pulls on the leash.
- A dog that doesn’t listen.
- A dog that is “out of control”.
- A dog that doesn’t like men, children, house guests or other dogs.
While these behaviors might be driving you nuts, they are not and cannot be the starting point for a successful dog training experience. Instead, we start with teaching a dog and its human to pay attention. Not only to each other, but to the environment around them.
We start with resource control (hand feeding) inside your home or in a group setting. We then move on to more distracting environments. Moving forward to each new or more difficult task will be determined by your dog’s success or failure, and that depends on the work you do during the time between each session.
Let’s Get Started!
We typically work for more than two months and meet four times. Each problem behavior is different, but a month of work is usually the minimum. It’s important to take one step at a time. Handle something simple first and then move on to the rest.
Dog trainers are not magicians, Jedi Masters or “Whisperers” of any kind. We are simply teachers: We teach other humans how to train dogs. Your success is dependent upon your work, your consistency and your ability to practice what we teach you.
NOTE: We require all clients to acknowledge that they have read both the Fine Print and FAQ prior our first training session.
When you’re done, we will get in touch with you to set up an appointment to meet you and your furbaby!
