Frequently Asked Questions

  • What forms of payment do you accept?
    Cash, Check, Paypal, and Venmo
  • How often does training take place?
    Typically most clients start with weekly or bi-weekly depending on their dogs needs and their schedule.
  • Do you allow questions/support between lessons by email?
  • Where is training held?
    The majority of the lessons are held at your home.
  • Can we practice at the store or somewhere in public?
    Yes! Anytime you want to implement training outside of your home we can always meet near your home at a local pet
    friendly establishment! Home Depot, Lowes, Tractor Supply, any pet store, public parks, etc. are all places appropriate for
    training practice! This is like a regular lesson, but in a different setting.
  • How long does it take to achieve results?
    This completely depends on the dog, and the owner. The training involves teaching you to teach your dog, so the
    practice/work is up to you! It also depends on the severity of the behavior needs of the dog. Dogs that struggle with
    fear/reactivity can take months, whereas a dog that needs to learn basics (sit, stay, etc) can take a couple weeks. There is
    no definitive answer to this as there are many variables that influence the training process.
  • What type of training do you offer?
    All training is science–based & a positive reinforcement method. Use of shock collars, prong collars, e-collars, choke chains, force or
    intimidation is prohibited. Use of treats, toys, praise, and positive physical touch is utilized during the training process.
