WHY ARE YOUR PRICES SO MUCH LOWER THAN OTHER TRAINERS?
I started dog training because of shelter/rescue dogs. Most of these dogs end up in shelters because of behavior issues and a lot of people can’t afford to train their dogs. So here I am.
I have a full-time job that pays my expenses and I do training on days off for 12 years now.
WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE YOU OUT OF ALL THE OTHER TRAINERS?
I genuinely care about your dog
I use only positive and fun methods. Read what is said about aversive methods, shock collars , other methods and statements, Veterinary Statement
What is game-based training?
A series of 3-minute games you and your dog play that prepares them for real-life situations by shaping their brains
Sit, Down, Stay, Come, are great but they don’t prepare your dog for real life situations
Train concepts through games, shape their personality and train for real life situations
Train FOCUS, CONFIDENCE, INDEPENDENCE, FRUSTRATION & TOLERANCE, AND MORE all trough the power of games.
WHAT IS USED FOR REWARDS?
Your dog’s own food
Ditch your dog’s food bowl if you can and use all that food as rewards
Put the leftover food in interactive puzzle toys, snuffle mats, Bob-a-Lots, etc.
WHAT EQUIPMENT IS NEEDED FOR THIS TYPE OF TRAINING?
Your dog’s food
Preferably a raised bed such as a cot
TYPES OF DOG TRAINERS
TRAINER 1 THE INTIMIDATOR
Gets results through force and intimidation
Uses tools such as choker collars, shock collars, prong collars
This type of trainer damages the relationship with owner and the dog’s behavior can get worse
TRAINER 2 THE PRAISER (What I used to do)
Uses reward-based training methods
Focuses solely on behaviors, telling the dog what to do so the dog isn’t taught to think for themselves
Trains sit, down, come, stay but the dog gets outside in the real world and everything falls apart
TRAINER 3 THE PRO DOG TRAINER (Who I am now)
Plays concept games
Gets results by shaping the dog’s brain arming dog with the tools they need to conquer the world and they have fun doing it
Teaches concepts instead of behaviors. Concepts like: IMPULSE CONTROL, BOUNDARIES, FOCUS, AROUSAL DOWN, CALMNESS
We teach the dog to think and to make great choices
The owner-dog relationship flourishes because they want to work for you
