FAQ

 

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

    Your enthusiasm

                                                                       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
