Hound of the Louisvilles
About this pro
My approach is very holistic. I believe our dogs are reflections of our families. Most dog behavior issues arise when our own lives are out of balance. My goal is to help you achieve that balance so that we can work together to start training your pooch. Of course I love animals, but I also really love helping people, especially families. Whether that family is just you and your dog or a family with six children, I want to help you gain the knowledge and skills to have a happy and balanced life with your pet.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Before I even meet your dog, I will ask that we have a one hour consultation meeting at a restaurant or coffee shop to discuss your needs. My consultation fee is $20. After our consultation, you can decide whether or not to use my services. If you do want to hire me, I charge $20/hour. I do not use a flat rate because every family is different. One family may only need me for a couple of hours while another may need me for several weeks. I want to give you the freedom to choose how much of my time you need.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?Of course I absolutely love dogs and everything about them. From a young age I noticed I saw more potential in dogs than even their owners. One time I brought my own dog to a friend's house and using only a nod of my head I asked him to leave the kitchen area and he did. My friend's dog was also in the kitchen and he asked if I could get his dog out as well, and I did. He was so amazed, but I was not because I knew his dog was very intuitive and knew exactly what I was asking him to do. This is just one example, but people doubt their dog's abilities all the time. I want to change that perspective and unlock your canine's potential.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?I would look for someone who cares about people just as much as dogs. There are lots of wonderful people out there who adore animals, but many of them have a hard time relating to other humans. It is important to find someone who is balanced, confident, and caring.
