Frequently Asked Questions
Is my pet too old to be trained?
No! I work with all ages, sizes, breeds and skill levels. Old dogs can learn new tricks.
What is your approach to pet training?
I strive for learner-centered, minimally stressful, and thoughtful training sessions with all dogs. I use gentle, positive oriented methods, based on the most current science of dog training and behavior.
Which of your services is right for me?
Each service offers it's own benefits. If you are unsure what service is best for you and your dog, please contact me. Together we will find the best fit.
When will my dog be fully trained?
Your dogs training and progress is dependent on what you do when I am not present. I provide you the tools and skills to continue to work with your dog at home. Each dog and handler progress at different rates and I strive to provide you the best path to get you the results you need from your dog.
WHAT IF MY DOG HAS A HISTORY OF AGGRESSION OR FEAR BEHAVIOUR?
Please contact me to discuss you and your dogs needs. Although I do offer group classes, private training might be better suited to your needs. I may also refer serious behavior cases to a specialist.
What should I bring to training?
A hungry, healthy dog. Do not feed your dog right before
A large variety of small sized treats that are high value
Flat collar and 6ft leash
A notepad and pen if you wish to write anything down
