Cynthia is delightful! She is helping my puppy and I to better understand one another, between basic commands and certain issues. He is progressing every day and I have Cynthia to thank for it!Apr 22, 2018Gentle Touch Dog Training, LLC's reply
Thank you, Crystal! It is a pleasure to work with you and Potato, both at home and in class! Your hard work shows.
Awesome trainer, will look forward to more appointments!Jan 26, 2018Verified
I learned more in one visit about dog behavior than I ever gained during years of classes at local dog training clubs. Absolutely a top notch, wonderful trainer. So thankful to have found Gentle Touch Dog Training.Aug 5, 2017Verified
Great first session! She was prompt, friendly, professional, and very knowledgeable. Would definitely use her expertise again and highly recommend to anyone that needs assistance with their dog as well. Thanks so much Cynthia!Apr 28, 2016Verified

- 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).
