What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I start at $35 for a private lesson in my local area and the farther the drive or difficulty of training the price can be anywhere from $45-$75 per lesson.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I evaluate the dog and discuss with the client what their goal is with their dog and go from there setting up a training program. If I am needed for pet sitting I like to do a meet and greet where I can meet client and pets and they can meet me and get to know me.

I trained at one of the best dog training facilities in the country and have been training dogs and taking care of animals since I was a kid. I am also an AKC certified breeder of German Shepherds. I have taken several educational courses and passed with high 90s.

I have worked with all types of people young and old.
