Frequently Asked Questions

Sessions generally last 45mins to an hour depending upon the type of training you desire. We address general obedience training and behavior modification. This is a major advantage we have over classroom training. Some dogs will be ready to learn new skills in a week, others will be ready in a month. The training is tailored to you and your dog.

No. I charge a flat fee per Companion Training Program. However, I do not train children, cats, husbands, wives or in-laws. Please don’t ask…lol

Call me and tell me about your dog. I’ll listen and help. We always start with a free consultation so we have a chance to meet you and your dog. Contact us and get your free consult today.

Positive reinforcement training is all about rewarding the dog for good behaviors. Our primary tool is always the reward that your dog is most fond of, whether that’s food, praise, petting or a playtime. Other tools that we use are six foot leashes, treat pouches, clickers and harnesses. Every tool we use is designed to be friendly and effective, which is why we cannot allow choke collars, pinch collars or shock collars on our premise or in conjunction with any of our classes or training sessions. Why subject your dog to the pain of these tools if you’re able to teach him without using them? The use of pinch collars, choke collars and shock collars can have such serious negative side effects as fear and aggression.

Puppies nine to twenty weeks must have their first round of Bordetella and DHPP shots. Dogs six months and older need to be current on their DHPP, Rabies and Bordetella shots. Because vaccinations have an incubation period of one week, all dogs must have had their vaccinations at least seven days prior to coming to class.

Yes- Training is a family affair! If you’re working to stop your dog from begging for food while someone else in the family is feeding him chicken under the table, your training is not going to be effective. Inviting the family, even young children, to be involved in the training of your dog is a great way to get the whole family on the same page. Many times children can be the quickest learners when it comes to dog training. We do ask, though, that all children (18 and younger) be supervised by an adult, that way they are not disrupting another dog’s learning or putting themselves or a dog in harm’s way
