- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Set up a time to meet with us for a FREE consultation!! If you decide that we are a good fit then we will schedule our first session then and there, and we will get started as soon as possible.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Members of APDT. I am an Associate Member of the International Association of Canine Professionals and am professionally insured through the Business Insurers of the Carolinas. The owners of Pack Leader K9 Academy have been training dogs for upwards of 4 years, and have worked with animals for their entire adult lives. Our trainers have all been trained personally by us, to our high standards! We are authorized dealers for Educator collars, these collars are available for purchase on our website.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?Before starting this business, I volunteered my time walking dogs at a nearby animal shelter. There I worked with dogs of all breeds, temperaments, and backgrounds. My focus was getting them enough exercise, reinforcing their training, and preparing them for meeting new people. While rewarding, it was tough to see good dogs surrendered for solvable problems. Often those dogs had been there before. With that in mind, I decided I wanted to help dogs adjust to the home environment and reduce the number of dogs surrendered to shelters.
