Frequently Asked Questions

Do you offer payment plans?

Yes, contact us to request a quote and payment plan information.

Do you accept all breeds?

Yes, absolutely!

Do you have any age restrictions?

It is never too early or too late to start training. I do require that dogs are fully vaccinated so some puppies have to wait until 12 weeks.

Do you work with aggressive dogs?

We usually work with any dog unless we feel there is a reason that the safety of our trainers or the safety of others could be compromised.

Do you train service dogs?

Yes. We are very passionate about providing an affordable route to train service dogs for people that have the ability to self train. Contact us to learn more.

Do you train therapy dogs?

Yes. Contact us to learn more.

How do you personalize training plans?

Every client and every dog are different. Some clients like their dogs on the couch and some don't. Our training plans are customized to focus on what matters to you and how to make those skills useful for you in your everyday life.

Will my dog always rely on treats?

No, dogs are creatures of habit. We use to treats and other motivators like praise to encourage and form new habits. Once those habits are formed usually only praise is required to maintain the new habit. Just remember that like humans, dogs take time and consistency to truly form a new habit.

Where do lessons take place?

It depends on the course you take. Basic obedience focuses on your routine at home and the lessons happen at your home. Intermediate obedience focuses on your public routine and takes place at the parks and public places you frequent. Advanced obedience can be at home or in public depending on client preference and what subject matter we are focusing on.
