Thank you🐾 RufF lOve, Alice🐶❤️
Alice is just wonderful!!!! She helped us with our pittbull Lucy!!! Alice is extremely knowledgeable!!! My whole family lives when she comes!! I have seen a huge difference in our dog, and we have Alice to thank!!Sep 14, 2017VerifiedRufF lOve dOg traiNIng inC.'s reply
Hi Jenn, it was great working with you and your whole family. Please keep up the work with Lucy and I'm sure everything will be just fine going forward. RufF lOve, Alice🐶❤️
Alice is simply the best! We were so lucky to have found her. After just a few hours, my 9 year old cocker spaniel is behaving so much better. It was an extremely difficult situation as my dog was showing bad signs of aggressiveness, and anxiety. Alice showed us how to control his anxiety and stop aggressive behavior. She is amazing!Aug 16, 2017VerifiedRufF lOve dOg traiNIng inC.'s reply
Hi Melissa, I am so very happy we were able to make so much progress during our Consultation. Creating harmony in your pack was of the utmost importance to me. Keep up the good work and remember to be patient w/all in your pack:) RufF lOve, Alice <3
I think Alice is exceptional. She is very professional and caring. Though I have only seen her once I think she is right on the mark with her training. I can't wait to see what we learn in her next session.Aug 8, 2017VerifiedRufF lOve dOg traiNIng inC.'s reply
Hi Marie, I do believe this little rescue of yours is the luckiest pup to have you & your hubby to lOve him while working on his aggression so he can become a balanced dOg & you both can reap the rewards yet come. Let's keep up the work we started and remember patience, consistency & boundaries will bring it all together:) Looking forward to see his continued progress at our next session. Alice<3
I was very impressed with our initial consultation. Alice was very friendly and made us feel at ease immediately. She was very thorough in getting to know my dog Mac and personalizing an action plan to put into place. I am looking forward to attending her Boot Camp in the near future.

Hi Jill, the pleasure was all mine & don't forget to join us @ "dOggie bOOt cAmp" in September. Looking forward to seeing you there🐶❤️🐾

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I have a Consultation/Evaluation/Session fee of $250 locally on Staten Island. Off the Island there is a small travel fee based on location. Thereafter, my per session fee locally is $135 and packages begin at 4 sessions w/a price reduction to $110/session or $440, 5 sessions w/a price reduction to $105/session or $525 and 6 or more sessions @ $100/session starting @ $600 pkg. There is a small fee for non-local travel. In addition, I offer discounts to our Vets, Military & Seniors.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I start w/a 2.5.hour Consultation/Evaluation/Session w/the entire "pack" preferably. Thereafter, we usually work together on a weekly basis to accomplish all the goals set forth in our Consultation and get the job done. You can pay full price by the session or buy a package of sessions at a reduced rate. Packages start at 4 sessions and can go up from there.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am trained "hands-on" in NY's only proprietary school for Professional Dog Trainers. I stay current by reading every journal, article, recall and new developments which are all at my disposal and I share all the pertinent information on my 3 fb pages daily, as well as share the info w/my contact list via email on a regular basis. I also attend as many Conferences as possible and regularly take online webinars, classes & compile data from dozens of resources.
