5 Key Training Tips
- Keep It Short and Sweet
Keep training sessions short and upbeat so that the training process is rewarding and builds on success.
- Proof your Training
Start all new lessons in an environment with the least number of distractions and slowly move to more complex and varied settings.
- Request Things You Can Follow Up On
Avoid asking for things you have no way of reinforcing. (Asking a dog to come while it is fully engaged in another activity for example).
- One Request Should Equal One Behavior
Ask for one thing – reward or redirect the response.
- Rewards Matter
All animals respond to a meaningful reward. (Mine is flowers and chocolate!) What’s your dog’s? Use it during the initial training stages generously.

It’s Time to Get Off On The Right Paw
If you are looking for a price sheet – We don’t have one. We begin all training with a exploration of both the human and canine needs. If this is an in-home evaluation and training session, you can expect the fee to be around $75.00.
We begin by assessing your dog’s reaction to a stranger entering your home to help identify key characteristics. Your existing daily “dog” routine is reviewed. We talk about your concerns, hopes and things that may promote or interfere with working with your dog. Your dog is going to get a lot of attention so we can gauge what works, what doesn’t. We focus on a few things to begin working with and have you practice. We finish by reviewing the key areas of focus and need. All evaluations are followed up by email to include what we discussed and any needed training tips.
All training is experiential. That means EVERY experience you have with your dog is an opportunity to train. If you are working on specific tasks – do this several times a day, for a short period, in a variety of settings.
Our goal is to empower you with the knowledge and skills to train your dog yourself. It’s your dog, your relationship!
