Dog training type
Board and train at a facility
We reached out to Carla when we hit a wall with our very young but powerful golden retriever Sidney. My husband and I were first time pup owners and had little experience with a high energy and easily distracted fur baby. Despite her overwhelming cuteness, we were desperate to learn how to keep her attention long enough to begin instruction. Sidney had trouble walking on leash, staying focused, and listening to commands, especially when they came from me. I reached out to Carla for help and she immediately reassured me that with practice and patience, we would progress. Carla worked with Sidney independently and worked with us together to improve control and obedience. She adapted exercises and instructions according to our needs and goals. Over time, Sidney learned to control her destructive impulses and respect my commands and presence. Highly recommend Carla- she’s great to work with!Jan 14, 2020FluentDog Training's reply
Thank you Andra! I am so glad my advice helped—and that your hard work and follow through have paid off for you and Sid!
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?The fee I quote you is the cost to fix your dog training problem--not an hourly fee. For each hour-long private lesson, I spend at least an hour preparing, plus driving time. For my board and train clients, I provide a very structured, yet caring environment just as a pet sitter would--PLUS dozens of short training sessions throughout the day along with time to rest and play.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have taught multiple group classes at Capital Dog Training Club, including Basic Obedience and Canine Good Citizen Prep. I have put multiple titles on my personal dog: CGC, Companion Dog, and Trick Dog Intermediate.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I have trained every single animal I've ever owned: dogs, horses, cats, birds, and even a Betta fish. (Yes, I'm serious!) I love to train because it allows animals and humans to understand each other harmoniously.
