Read reviews that mention:
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Let me be honest, I have no idea of a clients's situation and what they can afford, but I do know if you're contacting me, you can use my help. For that reason I am happy to offer flexible rates starting at $90 for the first hour, depending on your location.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
The first step is a free phone consultation. During that call we will get a general background of your pup and what's going on and discuss your goals for training. At the end of the call we will arrange for our first session which will include an evaluation/assessment and discussion of your goals which will determine how training with proceed. During this first session I will also introduce some basic training groundwork and guidelines for moving forward. After that we'll likely meet once per week to review, troubleshoot, assess your goals and progress, and learn new skills. Training is a hands on activity on your part. You will be given homework each week that will sharpen your skills and build your relationship with your pup. In between sessions I am available by phone, text or video to answer questions and help if something's not working. Once we have reached your goals, I'll be available "on call" to help with any issues that arise.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I attended the Marin Humane Society's Academy for Dog Trainers and have attended seminars over the years...but it's the hands on real life experience that makes up the bulk of it.
