Notes From the Trainer:
I promise that our training will work for your dog to reach the goals you have; a guarantee that lasts your
If you are like most of the dog owners I talk to, you have already gone through training programs with your dog
and still need assistance with getting your dog to listen, or to stop some unwanted behaviors.
It is extremely rare to find a dog trainer who can PROMISE that their training will work for your dog. So
why can I promise it and others can't? Why should you choose us?
I'm not just a dog trainer. I understand the way dogs think, and teach your dog to be well mannered in a way
that works according to how dogs understand the world around them. I also teach you everything you need to know
about why your dogs do certain things, and how you can effectively make sure they understand what you want from them.
Doing this helps us not only teach commands, but also resolve behavior problems at the root causes.
Training methods. Most methods of teaching commands have huge limitations in achieving reliability.
While other methods can produce well-trained dogs, the end result is also significantly different. With positive training,
the goal is to develop a dog who thinks and works cooperatively with his human as part of a team, rather than a dog who
simply obeys commands. Positive reinforcement is simply one of your most powerful tools for shaping or changing your dog's behavior.
I do not use adversive methods. NO choke, pinch/prong or E-collars.
I teach your dog AND YOU. You need to know how to maintain the training, so I teach you everything you need
to know during your lessons and ongoing support.
There is no such thing as a dog who can't be trained. I have worked with hundreds of families and realized
that my training methods WORK every time, with every dog, no matter their breed, age, or behavior problem. That
was when my unique promise became included in the program to give owners peace of mind.
Experience. In addition to knowing that all dogs can be trained (even yours!), I have been training dogs for many
years. I know what works and what doesn't work reliably.
I am also a certified dog trainer(CPDT-KA) and hold a professional membership with APDT as well as a CGC evaluator.
This is all I do. I am not a part-time dog trainer. This is part of everyday life, all day every day.
My Promise means two things:
1) Peace of mind that the training will work in the first place! I know that my training methods and programs
work for ANY DOG. So we can offer limitless options because I know your dog can be trained. You receive unlimited
lessons to get your dog trained the way you want. All of the programs include a certain number of lessons as a
MINIMUM. So if it takes more lessons to train your dog and your family, there is no extra charge if you need more
lessons to complete the program.
2) After the initial training has been completed, if your dog ever forgets a command or any other problems come up, I
will help you resolve the problems and work with you and your dog at no charge.
I want to make sure all of my clients are successful long-term, and encourage them all to keep in touch with me if they
ever need any additional help.
Dog training should be an investment for your future with your dog. So any long-term investment should have long term
results. I guarantee your satisfaction with the training and coaching provided for life.
This is my stand on dog training. My promise to you.
