specialize in in-home training because it's a convenient way to
accommodate your busy schedule and because it allows all family
members to participate. And because the sessions are at your home,
both you and your dog will be relaxed and comfortable.
Our first step will be a phone consultation to determine
which behaviors you would like to address. Once we establish what
is needed, I will give you a quote for my services. I then will
send out a detailed questionnaire to obtain information about your
dog and any problem areas you want addressed. Obtaining this information
beforehand eliminates having to spend time during our training session
gathering information. That means when I'm in your home, we can
concentrate solely on training.
Since each dog-and-owner relationship is unique, we will set
up a customized training program that is effective and easy to follow.
At our training session we will cover several topics including:
How dogs think and learn
What motivates dogs
How to use positive reinforcement
to reward your dog
How to use a clicker for training
How to eliminate unwanted behavior
What common pitfalls to avoid
What the key factors are for
having a happy, healthy dog
Understanding how dogs learn and having a simple plan will take
the frustration and stress out of training. My goal is for you to
be successful and to have fun so you will enjoy living with your
well-mannered canine friend.
