- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My quote is always for one lesson so folks can learn my unique method of training and decide if we are a good fit to move forward with more training if that is necessary for their situation. The quoted lesson is lesson 1 of a package, and the remainder of a package is due at the end of the second lesson. Folks are always welcome to pay per lesson if they do decide they need lessons in addition to the original quote.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am always watching dogs interact with each other to learn any new nuances in their interactions I might have missed before. Also, I try I stay up on the latest training trends and medical breakthroughs as well as nutritional research via the Internet and independently published magazines such as Your Dog and The Whole Dog Journal. I also try to attend conferences when my schedule allows such as The Art & Science Of Animal Training Conference at UNT.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?
I've trained dogs since I was 7 years old though my parents had no knowledge of training to give me. Once I graduated from Texas A&M, all my friends & family said I was too good at helping them with their dogs for me to not go into training professionally. So, here I am, several hundred dogs trained later, and loving every minute of it!
