Jesse was very warm and welcoming! She was informative and helpful right from the start, and made me feel confident about training my dog and keeping him on the right track! :)Sep 20, 2019VerifiedProud Paws Dog Training's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?A flat rate is applied to the initial consult session, followed by an hourly rate thereafter. I also offer discounts for session packages. This is where the client has the opportunity to receive on-going guidance and is able to gain a momentum with their training over a 4-6 week period or more. The customer is more than welcome however to schedule as they please and every lesson and protocol is tailored to the individual's needs. Extra charges will apply to aggression related issues, multi-dog homes or locations outside of the predominant service area.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I always start with a 90 in-home minute consult. With most behavioral issues it's so important to meet the dog, see their home environment and gather information from the client about what they're experiencing. It's easy to miss something or to proceed incorrectly otherwise. I always encourage owners to establish a clear set of goals and to think about what's achievable for their family and for their dog. From here we can set a session schedule according to the client's convenience. I also always provide write-ups of their sessions with homework included to optimize progress.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Bachelor of Science in Animal Management and am a Certified Professional Dog Trainer through the Council of Certified Professional Dog Trainers. Continuing education within my field and remaining up to date with methods and techniques is also of great importance to me and necessary to maintain my CPDT-KA credential.
