We just started training and after just one session our CRAZY hyper dog that doesn't listen to anything is actually following some commands. Can't wait for the rest of the classes! I'm amazed so far!Feb 28, 2019VerifiedThe Canine Cure -Behavior Consultants and Trainers's reply

They really help me understand how to properly train my dog, they worked with me for the payment and the trainer always arrives at the scheduled time and really helps us with training our dog.Jul 21, 2018VerifiedThe Canine Cure -Behavior Consultants and Trainers's reply
Doug is really enjoying working with you Krzysztof. Thank you for choosing to work with us and we are thrilled to be able to help you.
I had the pleasure of working with Caitlin, one of the trainers at The Canine Cure. We ended up board and training one of our dogs and boarding the other one as well. Caitlin took into consideration all of our concerns and did a great job building the foundation for our pups training. She was also very good about keeping us updated about both of our dogs while we were away on vacation and both of our dogs seemed like they were well taken care of during their stay. I will continue to use her services in the future and definitely would recommend her for anyone looking for a dog trainer.Aug 2, 2017VerifiedThe Canine Cure -Behavior Consultants and Trainers's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Our pricing is set according to our years of education, experience, certifications, and credentials. All four behavior consultants have been to school specifically for dog behavior, and are not simply self-taught, like many training companies out there. We can handle cases that many trainers won't touch or struggle to have success with. The years of education allow us to modify dog's behavior in ways that others have not been able to. We help YOU to understand what is going on with your dog and how to best help them. Our pricing is discounted for a larger package purchased upfront, so a single session is $160. A package of 6 sessions is $720 ($120 each) and a package of 3 sessions is $445 ($148 each). Aggression and reactivity packages are priced a bit higher. Every package comes with a detailed follow-up report after EVERY session, lifetime phone/text/email support (we'll be your personal Google for the dog's life). We are very proud of our education and certifications and you know that you are getting the best when you choose to work with us. When you work with us, you will get exactly what many clients have received and continue to rave about-effective, humane, and fun dog training and behavior modification and top notch customer service. We won't work with you and then never stay in touch. Once a client, always a client and we will always be here to answer your questions.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?It is VERY easy to get started with us. Some simple forms are filled out prior, so we don't waste your time/money at the first appointment. Once forms and payment are submitted, we are good to go and training can begin.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Mary Jean did continuing education at The Academy for Dog Trainers in San Francisco while Caitlin received her Masters of Science in Canine Life Sciences from the Bergin Institute for Canine Studies. We attend seminars and workshops, and read constantly. Mary Jean is certified through the PPAB as a PCT-A (Professional Canine Trainer-Accredited) and through the CCPDT as a CPDT-KA and must earn continuing education credits in order to stay certified. Tanya is certified through the CCPDT (Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers) and Animal Behavior College and Doug is certified through Catch Canine Trainer's Academy where he completed the intensive Master's Track.
