Read reviews that mention:
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I have a basic pricing system for individual sessions, which may vary somewhat for the area serviced or the number of dogs.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
When I schedule a new client's first session, I set aside an hour and half. This time concentrates on getting a full background on both the dog(s) and the family dynamics so that I may design a training plan to fit their schedules, abilities and desires. I will always leave the client with new training techniques to work on after the very first session.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I spent a number of years apprenticing as a classroom trainer, and then a private client behavior counselor. During this time, I did a two year study of Tellington TTouch and became a certified TTouch Practitioner. To add to this knowledge, I began studying in earnest for the Certified Professional Dog Trainer - Knowledge Assessed (CPDT-KA) exam, the only psychometrically sound certification exam that is independent of any school or academy. Further, I continued to become a evaluator for AKC Canine Good Citizen program, and am currently one of a very exclusive group of trainers to be approved by Victoria Stilwell as a VSPDT (Victoria Stilwell Positively Dog Trainer).
