What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Board and train is $500 for the first 3 weeks and $150 for each additional week.
One on one training is $380 and includes 8 sessions that are between 45 minutes and 1.5 hours in length. The length will depend on the attention span of your dog and how much he or she lets us accomplish in one session.
Boarding without training is $20 per day per dog.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I graduated from Animal Behavior College in 2006 and then completed a year long apprenticeship with an Accelerant detection dog trainer. I've been to numerous Schutzhund seminars and was part of a Schutzhund club for 2 years. I've trained hundreds of dogs in both obedience, behavior issues, sport, competition, police k9 and various other disciplines.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Our most common types of jobs are basic obedience training for young or unruly dogs and handling aggression issues toward people and other animals.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I wouldn't necessarily call this a "job" per say, but I am extremely proud : I kept back a male puppy out of my last litter in 2010 to work and compete with. Training was going very very well, and this dog was everything I could have ever asked for or hoped for in a competition dog. This past March (2012), a police department that I had previously sold a dog to, had to medically retire one of their dual purpose K9s unexpectedly. I called them and offered them my boy, who I was about a month away from trialing. As it turned out, my boy Deuce was a perfect fit and is now with Transylvania Co Sheriffs Office, certified dual purpose K9, and was a complete donation.
