New puppy in the home? Unruly adolescent getting out of control? Poor impulse control? Adult and older dog developing poor habits or becoming increasingly difficult to manage? Want more family involvement? Considering training towards therapy or service dog functionality? Whatever issues bring you to seek professional help, you’ve come to the right place. Get started now on the journey to learn how to become the Benevolent Leader to your dog[s].
Service begins with a brief telephone intake which helps customize the issues that are important to you. From this information you receive a customized treatment plan to address current issues, learn how to fix them and develop the skill set to trouble shoot any future issues. Call or email to set up an intake or get more details. References available upon request.
Training is for all ages and stages of development. We teach YOU how to teach your dog(s) while living in a reality based universe.
TOPICS INCLUDE: house training, mouthing/chewing, fears, rude manners, getting along with others (animals and people), new dynamic in house (e.g., marriage, divorce, new baby or pet, moving, etc.), destructive behavior, leash behavior, running away, anxiety disorders, PTSD, excessive barking, overly protective behavior as well as dog/dog or dog/people reactivity or aggression (see below for more details on Aggression Issues).
Sometimes you need to hear things twice (or more often!) to hear them the first time; your dog is in a new developmental phase that confounds you, a trauma caused new problems, or you just want another go around on fine tuning things that are confounding. REFRESHER COURSES range from 1-2 hours per visit and are charged at an hourly rate.
Prerequisites: Private Clients Only
Hourly Rate: $135/hour
AGGRESSION CASES (2 session minimum)
Aggression is defined as a dog causing harm to people or other animals. This more severe and usually anxiety based problem is treated similarly to the 4 Hour Model but requires a 2 hour follow up within 2 weeks of initial service to ensure that protocols are understood and being followed and to ensure safety of all. Email for more details on this service.
Cost: $650 (travel fee for clients outside of 6 mile radius and based on mileage)
While limited Phone & email support is and remains a feature of private training services, especially useful immediately after your session, UNLIMITED Email and IM SUPPORT is just that. If you need a reminder, a pep talk, clarity on certain issues, questions about resources and other training matters, or just need to know you have that lifeline available if you need it, even quite frequently at times, UNLIMITED EMAIL/TEXT/IM SUPPORT might be just the right low cost tune up you need to stay focused and goal oriented.
Prerequisites: Private Clients Only.
