 Without questions, there is no learning!  Here are some of the frequently asked questions we receive concerning dog training.

Will my dog remember me when he/she comes back from the 4 week boarding program?

 Yes, absolutely! The gift of communication you are giving them will only enhance your relationship and solidify your bond through clarity. We will educate you on how a dog thinks and teach you to accelerate the bond with your dog.

Will I be able to visit my dog during the boarding/training program?

 We do not recommend this as it is confusing to the dog. It is essential that we establish a bond with your dog in order to establish a happy learning environment. Visits from the owner can impede and delay this process. 

What if my dog forgets all of his/her training and I wasted my money?

 Your dog WILL forget if you don't practice. If you don't do maintenance work, your dog's focus will get rusty. Luckily, we provide you with all the exercises you will need to keep your relationship with your dog. 

Where will my dog be staying? Is it a kennel and around other dogs?

 While your dog is with us, we will mimic their home lifestyle as close as possible and they will be a part of our family. Down time in a kennel is part of the training process. Once your dog is comfortable with our process, they will be exposed to other dogs. There will be social time and play 

How will I learn to maintain the progress you've made with my dog?

 When your dog is trained, our job is only halfway done. We then will train you so you can continue the work and reap the benefits of a great dog-owner partnership

Do you offer payment plans for the boarding/training program?

 Yes. We require 50% payment at time of pick up and the remaining balance to be paid at the time when drop off your dog. As a dog trainer we place a very high value on bringing your dog back and spending time with your family going over everything that was learned and having it transfer over to you.

Can my dog be a protection dog?

 Most dogs are not capable of being a true, trusted protection dog. There are many factors that make up a quality protection dog and we can evaluate your dog to see if it has the skills needed for this type of work. 

Can you train my dog to be a service dog, therapy dog or emotional support dog?

 We can absolutely provide you the training to meet your needs. But, your dog needs to have the genetic potential and particular skills needed to provide the service you are looking for. We will happily consult with you to determine how we can assist. 

Can you help me select the perfect dog for my family?

 Yes! This is one of our specialties. We use a very detailed selection process to help pick the right breed,dog, size, etc. for your family. As a professional dog trainer we have developed a very good eye for matching the right puppy/dog with the right for ever home.

How do I find the right dog trainer?

We get asked often "how do I find a dog trainer near me?" The best answer to this is to do your research. Meet with the trainer, have them come to your house and see how they interact with you and your dog. Check their social media and google reviews and those are unable to be edited for content.
