We are dedicated to the training process for each & every dog and client who enters our Day Training Program. However, dog training is a very individual process. Both dogs and clients learn at different rates depending on many factors, including but not limited to the dog’s previous level of training & reinforcement history, their ability to acclimate to new environments & people and the owner’s commitment, dedication & consistency in training. All of these factors will determine the success of any training plan.
We pledge to do our very best to train the foundation skills that build towards the specific goals you have for you and your dog. Those foundation skills must be solid, in before we can build upon them. We will keep you up to date on any challenges or delays to your dog’s progress due to environmental challenges, stress, fear, etc.
Some dogs find it challenging to work in new environments, including our training facility. One of the ways to combat that is to use more enticing food rewards. We ask that you bring 3 to 5 different food rewards for your dog. What your dog will work for in the comfort of their own home, typically will not work in a more exciting, scary or distracting environment. If your dog is not working for the treats provided or if you prefer to purchase some directly from us, we can do that at a 5% discount as part of the training program.
You will get daily video and/or handout showing specific exercises you can work on with your dog as well as a weekly report that outlines their progress, areas for improvement, etc. We recommend that you review those daily and ask any questions you have promptly.
