Frequently Asked Questions
What is your philosophy on training, and what sort of
methods do you use?
I use the "Praise" method where a
dog is not scolded for disobeying but is praised for obeying. A
dog that is not trained properly, will not enrich your
lives. Everyone wants a dog who will be a companion not a
liability. Dogs learn bad habits easier than one would
suspect. Once a bad habit is learned they must be
re-trained to "unlearn" it by positive re-enforcement. ANY
dog can be trained with proper instruction. I offer
private lessons in your home or private lessons in my home.

How soon can I have you come by and start helping me with
There are no prescribed start dates. You
may begin as soon as you like. Once you have made the
decision to have me train your dog, simply give me a call
or email me to get started.
Is training done weekly?
Generally - yes. However, the frequency of visits is based on
your availability, individual training needs, goals and progress. There is no
because every situation is not the same.
How many times do you come to my home?
There are typically 10 visits, each lesson lasts 1
hour. This is negotiable because every situation is not
the same. I also offer training in my home as well.
What do you offer once my training is completed?
After training is completed, you are
welcome to email or call me with any training related
questions that you have regarding the dog that I trained.
What if I have already taken another program somewhere
Approximately 30% of the calls I receive are from people
who have done some form of group training elsewhere and
dissatisfied with the results. Complaints include a lack of
personal attention, a chaotic learning environment and the
dog is no longer obeying. I will train or re-train your
