Dog training type
Board and train at a facility
This was February 2018 and it is now August 2019. We took the six one-hour private coaching. The dog exhibits comprehension of what she was being repeatedly told to do for public behavior. In fact, she shows that she may have understood early on, but enjoyed the sessions, so kept showing a need for more training, which is a little bit humorous. I think the price is probably what the market is for an educated, cultured trainer.Aug 28, 2019Verified
Sherry was very loving to our dog, kind but in control of his behavior, and gave me good tips on how to retrain him in a positive way. I was already doing some of the recommended ideas , but she helped me refine them. Gwen and Wylie the terrier.Oct 1, 2016Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We begin with an initial 1 1/2 hour assessment to discuss pet owner's and dog's needs, desires, and priorities. Based on the assessment I develop a management plan and a training plan. We begin the training during the initial assessment, and I will recommend homework for the pet owner to continue the training during the week. After the assessment we will discuss which service would best meet the needs of dog and client, and proceed from there.
