About Jaimie Scott Dog Training and Behavior Modification

hired 2 times on Thumbtack

There seems to be a great deal of misinformation out there about dog training. From the stories my clients tell me there are a lot of really bad dog trainers out there giving terrible advice. I have plenty of clients that have been to two or more trainers before coming to me that were unable to solve their problems. Do lots of research, ask lots of questions, read lots of reviews online before ever choosing a dog trainer! I AM THE ONLY TRAINER YOU WILL FIND THAT WILL GUARANTEE YOU WILL BE SATISFIED WITH THE SERVICE I PROVIDE.

The first step in changing any dog behavior is to make sure your dog takes her lead from you. Once that piece is in place, you need to have someone that knows what they are doing show you what to look for in your dog's behavior and how to respond to it in a way that is going to reinforce the behavior you want and at the same time discourage the behavior you don't want. This is extremely difficult for most people and even many dog trainers don't get it right. The challenge is that every dog and owner is different and what works for one dog and owner doesn't always work for all of them.

    Thanks Kelly! It has been a pleasure working with you and Ranger.

Question and answer

Q. What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

A. I learn a great amount from each dog I train! It's amazing how much we can learn from dogs. They live in the moment. I also read lots of books on dogs.

Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?

A. I just moved and I was looking for a career change. I very much enjoyed my work, but was not passionate about it. I asked myself the question, "If I could do anything I want to do, what would it be?" My answer was work with dogs!

Q. What types of customers have you worked with?

A. Dealing with dog aggression, pulling on the leash, puppy training, potty training, and all other dog behaviors that owners want to change.

Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

A. There are a lot of really bad trainers out there giving terrible advice. Ask lots of questions, read lots of reviews online, be sure what any perspective trainer tells you makes complete sense and if it doesn’t make sense keep asking questions until it does. Many experienced trainers start at $1500 (or considerably more) to train a dog. I keep my prices low to make my services available to as many people and dogs as possible. I love what I do and I do this because I am passionate about improving dog/owner relationships.

Q. What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

A. Group classes and individual training serve very different purposes. Classes are good for socializing your dog around people and other dogs. If you want to learn to read your dog’s behavior and respond so that you can change specific behaviors, you won’t learn that in a class. In a class there isn’t enough time to show each owner how to read their dog’s specific signals and find an effective way to communicate their expectations to their dog, so the information tends to be more general in nature. Every dog and owner are different. Not all dogs respond to the same types of correction or reward and not all owners are able to deliver all types of correction in a way that gets results. Effective training requires modifying the training methods to find what works for both you and your dog. In a one on one session I will first show you how to make sure your dog takes his/her direction from you. Then you will learn how to respond to specific behaviors your dog has in a way that will reinforce the behaviors you want and stop reinforcing the ones you don’t want.
