Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect from my first consult?

You and the trainer will spend a considerable amount of time just getting to know each other, the dog’s history and current challenges. All of this provides the trainer with the information to recommend the best hands-on practice, theories and methods to be used. It’s important we understand the current challenges and your dog’s history. It sets the foundation for you and your dog’s customized modification plan. The plan will provide you with the confidence to work with your dog and see results.

Can I bring my family with me to the consultation?

You are welcome to bring any family/household members that would be helping with the dog along with you. All children, 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

I have two dogs, can I bring them both with me to the consult?

No, we limit consultations to one dog at a time.
