By adding a ton of structure into your dog's day (leadership exercises, the structured walk, crating your dog, the place command, and limiting affection, you will actually start to see a calmer dog with less behavioral issues that understands that you are the pack leader.
The Walk Program
This is what I recommend if you struggle with walking your dog. In this package I’ll teach you the fundamentals of “the structured walk,” which is foundational for having a good relationship with your dog.
In this package we do 2 lessons (60 minutes each). In the 1st lesson I condition your dog to a prong collar. In the 2nd lesson we fine tune everything and I teach you a bunch of techniques that will help you work on the “heel” command. We will also get into basic politeness – stopping at thresholds/doorways.
Many dogs will respond really well to just using a prong collar. However, there are the handful of dogs that will not soften up (stop pulling) with just a prong collar and these dogs also need an e-collar. If I feel your dog will need an e-collar you can purchase one from me – and if you want a demo first to see how great the results can be I can demo one of mine for you and you can think about it or buy one later.
*I will not be taking leash reactive dogs for this package – however I may take them for the lesson packages if they fit a certain criteria.
Price : $230
*Price includes a Herm Sprenger prong collar and leash. The prong collar is a requirement in my training programs.
In the private lesson packages, I come to your location and provide assessment for you and your dog. Together we can put together a comprehensive plan to achieve your goals.
If your dog is having more serious behavioral issues, its best if you drop your dog off with me (for the 1st session or so) and I work them alone at my location. This is because dogs have associations with owners that often feed into unwanted behaviors.
All lessons are 90 minutes. The sessions need to be booked as close to each other as possible so that your dog can retain as much information as possible.
3 lessons : $450
5 lessons : $650
Add-on Lessons: $100
*Price includes a Mini Educator e-collar and a Herm Sprenger prong collar. These tools are requirements in my training programs.
Two Day Intensive w/ follow-up lessons
This is basically a seminar at your house. We can do this over a weekend or any 2 days back to back (2 sessions per day). Each session is 90 minutes long and I will go over how to implement structure and leadership in your dog’s day from beginning to end.
In this package, I come to your location and provide assessment for you and your dog. Together we can put together a comprehensive plan to achieve your goals. First I do the initial training exercises with your dog, then I teach you what I am doing and how to do it. I am available all day for questions.
Dogs have to be crated for the Intensive. If your dog isn’t crate trained, this is totally something we can work on.
The Intensive is great if you are really struggling and are eager to learn and absorb a ton of information on balanced dog training and what I recommend if you’re eager to see serious changes.
We will take a 2-3 hour break between sessions (while your dog takes a nap to process and rest) and I will most likely go out to try to find a Starbucks 🙂 leaving you some time to chill as well.
Overall, be prepared to do a lot of work and have fun. Each day we will do a morning and early afternoon session. This package also includes 2 follow-up lessons (90 min each).
Price : $850
*Price includes a Mini Educator e-collar, Herm Sprenger prong collar and “place” board. These tools are requirements in my training programs.
