This group class offers all of the insight offered in my private training problem at a fraction of the $2,000 private training price. Space in this class is limited to ensure each dog receives the individual attention they deserve.
My dog has attacked several dogs. Is this the right class for him?
No. Dogs with a severe level of aggression are too high a liability for this class.
My rescue is terrified of all people. He came from a hoarder. Will he improve with this class?
Yes. Dogs with no exposure to people slowly gain confidence in this class.
My dog is fine at the dog park but barks and lunges at other dogs when he is on leash. If I take him off the leash he runs up to other dogs and is fine. Will this class help him?
Yes. The 'dog park' syndrome is common and I have solutions.
My dog is fine with dogs except small ones. Will this class solve this problem? Will there be small dogs in class?
I can help you and your small dog disliker. Even without small dogs in class I can give you solutions.
My dog barks and will not stop when he sees other dogs. I don’t want to be embarrassed in class. Can you help me?
Yes. Barking is common with the dogs who come to this class. You are among friends and we'll work it out.
I use a shock collar on my dog to train him. But I want to socialize him with other dogs. Can I use the shock collar in class?
No. I do not use shock collars to train pets. I can give you alternatives that are more humane and more effective.
