Wonder Dog Training
About this pro
Unlike many other local dog trainers, we use kind, humane, effective training methods. No shock collars, prong collars, choke chains, or compulsion training. We customize training by taking into account the age, breed, health, temperament, and background of the dog, and the training objectives of the owner. We offer private training in your home, small group classes, board and train, overnight boarding, and dog walking. We even offer a unique "Train While Away" option, in which the trainer comes to your home and works with your dog while you are at work! We work with all ages, breeds, and behaviors. Please visit our our site for more information.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?We can help with a wide variety of obedience and behavior concerns. Prices range from $350 for three sessions to $1095 for twelve sessions. Packages are customized for you and your dog. The initial consultation/evaluation is $79 for standard obedience and behavioral concerns. The fee is $150 for separation anxiety or aggression issues. You may also find information and fees for pet sitting, leash training/walking packages, and group classes under our "Services" menu.
- What types of customers have you worked with?Many of our clients call because they require help with behavioral issues, such as puppy training and socialization, house soiling concerns, aggression (dogs and people), fear-related behaviors, excessive barking, boundary training, door bolting, unruliness, jumping on people, counter surfing, chewing, digging, pulling on leash, and separation anxiety. We also work with dogs that are easily distracted or ignore their owner's requests. There are many puppies, for example, that have short attention spans, but that can learn very quickly in a quiet home environment. Once foundational obedience has been mastered, training may be proofed with real-world distractions in order to increase the likelihood of a dog's ability to comply. We believe in using kind, effective methods and equipment. Consistency and good communication skills are a must, as is a positive learning environment. We do not use shock collars in our training. We enjoy working with individuals, families (and even young kids), and tailor the lessons to the needs of the individuals and their dogs.
