- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Certified Professional dog trainer who uses the proven method of positive reinforcement training. I listen to your needs and try to work with you as closely as possible. I have 3 sessions that cover all the basics that you will need to get your pup on his/her way to being a well behaved and productive part of your pack. I do not specialize in fearful or aggressive dogs.I like to first get to know the client and get a sense of what it is that their dog really needs. 3 basic obedience sessions that will cover proper behavior and human to dog relationship building. Then we will get into the common cues such as sit, stay and focus and recall to name just a few. Lastly we will work on proper walking techniques and behavior.
