PRIVATE LESSONS FOR DOG OWNERS
If you choose to schedule an appointment I will ask you to fill out a couple of forms prior to our meeting so I can review your information and prepare follow up questions. This allows us to make the most of your initial consultation.
We will review your information and solidify your training goals. I’ll assess your dog’s behavior and then we’ll talk about training expectations. You will get a sense for how much time you will need to spend training each week and how quickly you can reach your goals. I may demonstrate a couple exercises to get you started on your journey. Or I may recommend that you acquire a piece of equipment or do some reading before you begin training with me or another trainer of your choosing. You should plan to spend 1.5-2 hours for the initial session.
You will receive an email with notes from our session and helpful handouts regarding some of my recommendations. You are welcome to call or email with questions after our session. If you chose to continue working with me I’ll check in with you between sessions to make sure things are going well.
After the initial consult you will have the option to book 1 hour private sessions. These sessions are an excellent opportunity to ask questions about the skills you have been working on and to practice new exercises that will help you reach your goals. I like to book sessions 2-4 weeks apart so my clients have time to practice in between appointments.
