Frequently Asked Questions

How often do we meet for Private Lessons and how long is each session?

Typically, we meet once a week so that you have time to do the homework in between each session. We have found that twice a week ends up being “information overload” for either the dog or the human, and every other week tends to lose the accountability piece that we teach.

Each session is about 45-60 minutes depending on what we are working on. Your pup may be working that long, but there is a lot of information that we share while he/she rests!

At what age is it best to start training?

Right away! There are different stages of learning and maturity in the dog, but the bottom line is that while the dog is awake, it is learning. So, it is either learning what you want or don’t want them to know! Yes, we can teach old dogs new tricks, and little puppies are sponges for information. We work with them all!

Do you work with Separation Anxiety?

Separation Anxiety, and behaviors that mimic it, have been common for a long time and have become increasingly prevalent since the onset of COVID-19. Yes, we work extensively on this! We are even working on a video series to help reinforce what we teach!

What do you charge for training?

There are a lot of variables when it comes to the cost of training, and it ultimately boils down to how much personalized time you want us involved in the training! Board and Train is where we do most of the work, so it would cost more than Private Lessons, however it is generally a quicker process. While we are not the least expensive trainers in the area, we certainly are not the most expensive as we believe in charging fairly for the quality of training that you and your dog receive. This is why we offer the free consultation to where we can meet you and your dog and discuss your individual needs and customize a plan for you!

What do I need to do to prepare for my dog to go into a Board and Train and where will he be staying?

We simply need your dog’s food, favorite toy, collar and a copy of current vaccinations. We handle the rest! And, your dog is staying in the home of one of our trainers!

Do you deal with aggression?

Yes, we actually specialize in that! We will offer a consultation to see the seriousness, to which there can sometimes be a cost differential based on the liabilities involved.
