I am so happy with the dog training services provided by Mr. Brian Hunter for my Terrier, Grant. Brian's techniques are highly effective, and I noticed an immediate improvement in Grant's behavior. Brian truly loves his work and it shows! I highly recommend him for your dog training needs.Feb 10, 2020Verified
He is an incredibly calm, patient man who really understands dog psychology. Lots of great advice and truly gave me the confidence I needed to move forward with my training skills. My Malinois mix is getting a lot more out of our outings and also I now know how to correct the unwanted behavior in way that she quickly understands. I now know how to work on letting people in my home. A lot of work to do but there is a solid plan now, thanks to Brian. The dog that hates visitors was sad to see him leave. I highly recommend him as a dog and owner/leader trainer.May 22, 2019Verified
Brian is everything I’m looking for to help me with my fur baby. From the assessment session to day 1 of the training, my pup already showed early positive responses to him and to me. I like the progress I have seen so far. On day 2 this week I know there will be more progress to be seen. I like how thorough Brian is in giving me instruction and how he handles my baby pup is wonderful. I will highly recommend him to other dog owners who need behavior support with their babies.Jun 17, 2019Verified
Brian is a very personable professional. He is through and knows his stuff. He makes the dog as comfortable with himself as the owners. He makes sure you know and understand the “training” that he is implementing. He provides feedback to the owners making sure that the “homework” is manageable. I would recommend Brian Hunter to anyone for training of their dog.Mar 25, 2019Verified
Brian was truly amazing to work with. We had 2 sessions with him and learned many new training tools to help our dogs. He works great with each dog and takes the time to explain to us the process. I would recommend him to anyone looking!Mar 27, 2019Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Pricing is unique to the individual client and dog and is based upon what the client wants and the personality of the dog. Not all dogs are the same and a training plan is built around the individual dog. Cost is set at a per session rate which is reduced for a multiple session training plan. A typical training plan usually consists of between 1 to 4 sessions.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?My free evaluation gives me the opportunity to meet the client, get background information, evaluate the dog and then provide a training plan to achieve the desired results. This is also a great opportunity for the client to meet and evaluate me as a trainer before making their decision.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am certified in dog training and over the years I have volunteered at a number of rescue organizations. Each dog that I have worked with gave me a new experience to learn from. There are also a great many behaviorist in the world who are constantly publishing advances in the field and worthy of studying. As with trainers, their experiences are selflessly shared in order for others to learn through their mistakes or successes. Like a dog, a trainer is always learning also.
