Frequently Asked Questions

1. What’s the cost of your training program?

We have several different training programs to help you reach your goals. Virtually all of our clients are started on our Basic Obedience course. The cost of this course starts at $799.  Check out the dog training tab for some of the other classes we offer.

2. What type of training collars do you use?

We use a variety or training collars to help you communicate clearly with your dog. Our goal is always to communicate clearly with your dog as opposed to using a particular kind of collar on every dog we train. With that said, if you would like to learn how different collars work to produce the behaviors you are considering, we will help you make the best decision possible. We can teach you about remote collars, prong collars, choke collars, slip leads, martingale collars and any other training collar you may have questions about.

3. Do I have to use a clicker to train my dog?

We love to teach our clients about the benefits and downsides to using any training tool. A clicker is a fantastic tool that we use to train our own personal dogs.  There are many reasons why you should consider learning why it works and having it be a part of the way you communicate with your dog.  We will never make you use a tool that you do not want to.

4. Do you guarantee your work?

We do believe in delivering to you the highest quality dog training you can have.  We have a strong belief that if our clients will complete all the homework we assign they will reach the goals for that course.  If you do all your homework and we get to the end of the course, and your dog is still coming up short, we will continue to add sessions until we reach the goals for that course.

5. Do you use a reward-based training system?

We believe in training the dogs that are in front of us.  Each dog is unique and we want to make sure we train your dog in a way that is best for them and your family. We will use several different forms of reward including playing, using their food and treats, verbally praising, and petting them too.  We will also teach you different techniques to clearly say “no” to your dog to prevent unwanted behaviors.
