Training Packages & Pricing

Our initial, in-person appointment takes place in your home. This meeting is no-obligation and no pressure. I will meet you and your dogs, then will describe my methods and philosophy. After about 45 minutes, I will ask if you are comfortable with me and my system. If you’d prefer not to use my services, you can just say “No thanks,” and I’ll be on my way. There is no further obligation to you.

However, if you do decide to continue, we will move forward to finish the day’s lesson, which will last a total of 120-180 minutes, depending on the number of dogs you have. At the end of this session, you will be obligated to pay for The Foundation Package. (For your convenience, we accept Master Card, Visa and AMEX credit cards; checks; and cash.)

We will then plan a revisit to take place in another 7 to 10 days. Please know that during this important time, I will be in close touch with you to ensure you stay on track. You can expect me to phone you, as well as occasional emails with training instructions–which you can download and print–to help you along the way. Of course you can call me anytime for help!

The following information provides details about The Foundation package, as well as other packages we offer. Note that every client starts with The Foundation package.

After we have completed The Foundation (total of up to 3 visits), and you decide you’d like further assistance, you can upgrade to the next level of service by paying the balance between each package. You have up to 30 days after the last lesson of each package to upgrade. Additional amounts of time are available upon request. If you own more than 3 dogs ask me about our multi-dog discount pricing. Note: Depending on your location a trip charge may apply. Trip charges are always disclosed beforehand.
