- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
$95 for a lesson, lessons last at least an hour and up to an hour and a half. Discounted rate of $495 for 6 private lessons if paid for in advance. $150 per lesson for dogs with aggression issues ------------- Boarding $65 per dog per day I board dogs for one client at a time in my home where they live with me as if the were my pets. They have access to AC and a nice sized yard and have my well mannered young lab to play with. Please bring your own food and payment is due at drop off. *in cases where a dog has aggression I will not be able to board the dog because of the danger to my dog.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I'll set up an the initial training and consultation in their home where we identify problems and goals. In the consultation I work with the dog and owner and set time tables as best I can for how I think the training will progress and exercises that will need to be accomplished, which we begin immediately in that lesson. If the client would like we will then set up our future lesson dates at the end of the lesson. Most of the time after 6 lessons results are evident and the owner has enough skill to continue to strengthen what we worked on with out my help, or with just a bit of advice over the phone or through text.
