Frequently Asked Questions
People sometimes ask…
Do you guarantee your training?
What tools/methods do you use?
What if I want to buy individual lessons, not a whole training program?
We believe dog owners come to us because they’re looking for RESULTS, not 60, 90, or 120 minutes of training. We want you to reach your goals as much as you do, and we believe the best way to get there is to plan for that success right from the beginning. Students who achieve their training goals are happier with their dogs, and, therefore, their dogs live richer, happier lives. We love our students, and we love their dogs, so this makes us happy too!
Why do you talk about AKC obedience title standards? My dog is just a pet/I need help with manners and behavior problems, not getting my dog to sit/I don't want to compete with my dog.
Can I buy a gift certificate for my son/sister/annoying neighbor whose dog needs training?
We find that, despite the best of intentions by the friend/relative/neighbor, without the owner’s motivation and buy-in, training doesn’t have much chance of working. Any training, even immersion training (where the dog is trained by a professional), requires commitment, follow-through, and maintenance by the dog’s owner(s) to “stick”. Therefore, we don’t offer gift certificates.
