My fiancé and I were referred to Gentle Touch Dog Training for our 1 year old pit mix who we realized was having separation anxiety. From the moment that I contacted Cynthia, she was very responsive and professional. After 1 month of training with our puppy and following everything that Cynthia recommended and taught us, we now have a puppy who does not destroy our house when we leave anymore! We couldn't be happier with the services that she provided and will recommend her from now on to anybody looking for a qualified and experienced dog trainer!Feb 14, 2018Cynthia G.'s reply

- 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).
