Dog Obedience by Gina, LLC
About this pro
Gina spent time addressing are concerns and showed us how to work with Tobee (18 mo. yellow lab). Tobee has caught on to many of the things Gina has shown us and we feel confident she will continue to learn. The experience of training in her own surroundings is a plus for sure. We highly recommend Gina.Jul 18, 2018VerifiedGina N.'s reply
Thank you so much for the great review, Ken! It is ABSOLUTELY a pleasure to work with with you all. The time you spend with Tobee really shows! She has come so far due to your hard work and dedication to her.
Gina was excellent to work with. Not only is she good with our Dog, but probably as important: good with us (after all, Dog Training is more about teaching the owners to teach the dog, than teaching the dog!).Nov 16, 2017VerifiedGina N.'s reply
You guys are amazing teachers! I love all of Gunner's updates. Thank you for the nice review.
Gina has been wonderful to work with. Our puppy Walter absolutely loves her and loves his training classes. She has been able to give us some really easy training exercises that we can practice everyday. Being able to communicate with our dog and have him understand makes our day to day life very enjoyable. I highly recommend Gina to anyone looking for a trainer.Aug 29, 2017VerifiedGina N.'s reply
Thank you for the great review. Walter is an absolute pleasure to work with, as well as his humans!
Gina is so enthusiastic and down to earth! She got right in and put us on a challenging but clear path to success.Dec 22, 2016VerifiedGina N.'s reply
Thank you so much for your kind words! I hope to work with T-Bone again on his second phase of training. He is such a smart pup!
She is very professional and our pups listened and got a long with her very well. She gave us valuable insight and generally cares about our pups. She also is always looking for ways to improve her training.Mar 16, 2018VerifiedGina N.'s reply
Thank you for the nice review, Scott.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Prices vary depending upon whether there are common training issues or aggression issues. Also, package pricing vs individual sessions or group sessions.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I come to your home once per week for approximately 1 hour and teach you what and how to teach your dog. I will leave you with detailed written homework to practice throughout the week. Group classes forming soon!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have earned my Certified Professional Dog Trainer-Knowledge Assessed (CPDT-KA) through the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers. I join over 2000 certificates worldwide. Until the creation of the Certificate Council for Professional Dog Trainers in 2001, there was no true certification process for canine professionals. Many schools teach trainers and offer Certifications for their specific programs. These certificates, therefore, reflect the teachings and quality of a specific school. Other organizations offered take-home tests for "certification". These canine professionals are not monitored to ensure they are completing the task without any assistance or collaboration nor is the testing process standardized. This unprecedented process was originally implemented by the Association of Pet Dog Trainers, the largest association of dog trainers in the world, founded by noted veterinarian, behaviorist and author Dr. Ian Dunbar. A task force of approximately 20 internationally known dog training professionals and behaviorists work for three years to research and develop the first comprehensive examination. Professional Testing Corporation (PTC) was hired to ensure the process met professional testing standards. APDT then created a separate, independent counsel – the Certification Counsel for Professional Dog Trainers – to manage the accreditation and pursue future development. Candidates who pass the exam earn the title Certified Professional Dog Trainer – Knowledge Assessed and may use the designation CPDT – KA after their names. All certified trainers must earn continuing education credits to maintain the designations or take the exam again in three years. I am, also, an honors graduate of Animal Behavior College. My year-long commitment to this program has provided me with a formal education in canine obedience training and understanding behavior and its motives. My certification, education and experience provide me the skills required to effectively and humanely train your dog while keeping alive the spark that makes your dog so special to you. In addition to my certification, I am a Professional Member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers (APDT), a member of the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants (IAABC), the Pet Professional Guild (PPG) and I have a certificate of completion in pet CPR and First Aid. I am bonded and insured through The Business Insurers of the Carolinas. I am a qualified AKC Canine Good Citizen instructor. I can teach your pup the manners necessary to achieve CGC status which is the first step toward Therapy Dog training. I do not, however, consider myself qualified to be a “service dog trainer”. This entails a very specific training regimen that I am not qualified to offer....yet.
