About

Roger was amazing and truly transformed my dog. Even after the very first session, I noticed a huge difference in my dog. We used to not take her for walks bc she would pull to the point it was hard to control her. She now walks right at our left leg and doesn't let any distractions phase her. This is 100% a bargain and such money well spent. I've been through other trainings with my other dog and they were just 'ok'. This training was truly remarkable! Roger was very flexible and understood the sense of urgency when I wanted to get my rescue pit bull/boxer in right away so she was calm and behaving with having two young children. Thank you so much, Roger, for transforming my dog! I can't recommend you enough!

About

The dog and the training was first class. Sadly I live in Oklahoma or I would make a pest out of myself by hanging out there all the time. One of the best results I gained at my short time there was the friendship I left with. I have called back months and years later and still get advice and tips on running my hound. I came there as a client and student and left as a friend. Look forward to the chance to go back again.

About

Certified Advanced Obedience Trainer I have over 500 hours of dog training and behavior education and over five years of professional animal experience and teaching. I also have six years of experience in dog socialization and behavioral science. Service Dog Trainer I have experience in training and placing service dogs with persons who are differently abled. I also have experience as a dog trainer educator. Positive Reinforcement Whether training for obedience, service animal or problem behaviors, positive reinforcement is the proven method to build reliable habits in our four-legged friends by using the science of learning and behavior modification. Animal Care Specialist I have a two-year experience working in a dog day care/kennel setting to study the behavior of diverse breeds. I supervised off-leash dog packs, and I realized the dire need for alternatives to kennels and day cares for the many dogs who do not do well in these settings. Home-Based Dog Training Day Training: The trainer trains your dog in your home while you are at work or on vacation, and then transfers the training to you by teaching you the required skills and concepts required to maintain the training. Key Elements: * Flexible Schedule - You do not need to be present. * Faster Progress - A professional trainer can get more done in the same amount of hours. * Greater Family Compliance - Maintaining a behavior is less involved than training it. * Less Time Consuming - It is convenient to have your dog's goals addressed while you are at work. In-Home Training: The focus is on training you to train and understand your dog. Key Elements: * Hands-On - The owner learns the techniques to train and work with his/her pet. * Cost-Effective - The dog spends less time with the trainer, and therefore it is less expensive, but it is more time consuming for the dog owner, and the process is usually slower. Board and Train: Your dog is boarded with the trainer and gets one-on-one training. The trainer then comes to your home to generalize the behavior and teach you how to maintain the behavior. Key Elements: * Expediency - The trainer is able to do multiple training sessions each day. * Convenience - Your dog gets trained without you needing to be home. The only time a trainer comes to your home is to generalize the behavior to the dog's own house and teach you how to maintain the behavior. Pet Sitting/Check Ins: Some dogs are able to handle the stress of a kennel or a day care, but it is not ideal for most. The stress caused from noise and the impersonal care of understaffed and overcrowded facilities can be harmful. Some dogs stop eating and develop canine depression and/or anxiety. Basic Service: * One visit per day for cats or caged animals * Two or more visits for dogs or high-maintenance animals * Each visit lasts 30-45 minutes * Dogs are let out to use the restroom; litter boxes are cleaned out daily * Individualized attention, play, brushing (coat and teeth) * Mail brought in daily, plants watered and lights rotated
