- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Puppy Board & Train: The board & train program includes a first meeting, the initial session, where we assess and begin training. We go over your goals for you and your dog and we make a plan to create the results you want, set a date for drop off. Half payment is due at the first session and the remainder due at drop off. I provide daily text/video updates when training, so you’ll see what we are working on and the progress we are making. If you prefer, we can also Facetime (or another video call service) so you can see the training in real time. At pick up, we’ll go over what we have worked on and will meet again the following week. For the 3 day option, we start with a meeting and one follow up session. Full payment due at meeting. All follow up sessions happen at pick up. Our home: My family is a stay at home family. My husband works from home and we take turns with our daughter and our dogs.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I’ve successfully completed: Training Cesar's Way- Fundamentals of Dog Training and Behavior 1 at the Dog Psychology Center. The program was headed by world renowned dog behaviorist, Cesar Millan (aka the Dog Whisperer). Fearful/Feral Dog Workshop at the Animal Welfare Coalition of Northeastern New Mexico led by dog behaviorist Nelson Hodges Dog's Drives Workshop at BlackPaw training facility, Colorado led by dog behaviorist Brian Agnew I've also had the opportunity to shadow two dog trainers in NYC and Denver and have taken a dog psychology course. Running a dog rescue has helped me in learning the interactions between dogs and how to resolve issues. I am a member of the International Association of Canine Professionals (IACP).
