Working with the core concepts of exercise, enrichment, nutrition, communication, and connection, I am here to help you and your dog find a balance that suits you both.
Initial Consult $100/90 minutes
I’ll come for a visit and get a good picture of current life for you and your dog and we'll go over what issues you’re having and your goals. Then, we’ll come up with a plan to get you both from here to there.
Follow-up Visits $75/60 minutes
We’ll implement our plan for changes piece by piece at a pace that fits you and your dog. Much of dog training is human training, too, so be ready to learn new stuff right along with your dog. It’s a team adventure.
Focused Enrichment Time $25/30 minutes
What's enrichment? Finding the right play style and games for your dog to your her body, nose, and brain to expend energy in a focused and healthy fashion. A Focused Enrichment Time is a customized walk and/or play time where your dog gets the mental and physical stimulation she needs.
Training Walks $40/45 minutes
When we're working on creating new behaviors for our dogs, repetition and consistency are important. On training walks, I'll walk your dog for you while working the specific skills we're trying to build for her or him.
Where do we train?
I will be working with you and your dog in your home setting. If the new behaviors you want are for situations away from the home, we will adjust as needed.
How many sessions will it take?
Since each client team has different goals and works together at different speeds, there is no set number of sessions. The initial consult gives me the information to design the customized training package for you and your dog.
What type of training do you use?
I am a relationship based dog trainer, use positive reinforcement, and enjoy using a clicker because it increases the clarity of communication.
What does Dog Training for the Whole Dog mean?
I am working with the core concepts of exercise, enrichment, nutrition, communication, and connection as the foundation of dog training: paying attention to the physical, emotional, and mental aspects of the dog, thus the whole dog.
What is your cancellation policy?
If client cancels more than 48 hours before a scheduled session, there is no charge. If client cancels within 48 hours of a scheduled session, there will be a 50% fee charged. And if client does not show up at a scheduled session, the full fee is charged.
