What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Initially we meet and discuss the specifics of the training needs / results to be worked on. This session is about educating the owners on their dog's behavior then we get to work accomplishing the training goals.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have 20 years experience working with all breeds. I completed a training program with a local trainer and have taught small and large group classes.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I adopted a dog from a shelter who was quite difficult. What I found was I wanted to understand why he was misbehaving not just put a band aid on the trigger situations. Most trainers avoided educating me they just told me what to do. I tried many training techniques and realized that what works for one dog may not work for another.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I have worked with dog's with behavior issues as well as basic thru advanced obedience.
