Great Starts: Puppy
Eight weeks, one 40 minute-long session per week. Covers the importance of
socialization, management, housetraining, chewing, play-biting/nipping, handling, puppy manners,
and beginning obedience. Program focuses on managing/changing problem behaviors, leash manners,
self-control, and basic commands such as "Sit", "Down", "Come", "Stay", "Leave It", "Drop It", "Go
to your bed", and others. Lessons are customized to include your specific training issues. Includes
weekly review sheets and phone and email support if needed.
Six hour-long sessions: five weekly sessions with one follow-up one month after
the fifth lesson. This is our core curriculum. Here your dog will learn all of the basic commands
that make your life easier. We cover commands like "Sit", "Down", "Stay", "Take It", "Drop It",
"Leave It", and important everyday behaviors like waiting at the door, nice leash walking, polite
greetings, and come when you call. By the end of this program, your dog will have the foundational
skills that will make him a great pet. The program is customized to include your specific training
issues. Includes weekly review sheets and phone and email support if needed.
Wild & Crazy: Adolescent
Six hour-long sessions: five weekly
sessions with one follow-up one month after the fifth lesson. At about 7 months old, puppies
usually change from sweet, agreeable little babies to teenaged monsters. And this can last for two
years! This program is aimed at those dogs who cannot think when they're excited - jumping all over
your guests, grabbing things and running off with them, dragging you down the street, not
listening, ignoring you when you call him, and other obnoxious behaviors. The focus is on
self-control here - we want these dogs to learn that they don't have to react to everything that's
going on by losing their minds. One month after the fifth session, I come back and do a follow-up
session to help with any problems you may still be having. This is our core "Basics" program with
more emphasis on attention and self-control for those dogs who need more help "getting a grip". The
program is customized to include your specific training issues. Includes weekly review sheets and
phone and email support if needed.
Private Lessons - Tailored specifically for what you need!
If you have one or two specific issues that you need addressed, you might choose
to schedule one or more private lessons, where I will work with you and your dog on just those problems. Includes
an emailed recap of what we covered, and phone and email support if needed.
Carol is a very calm and reassuring trainer and the methods used
showed us the potential that was attainable with our dog. Having success with the methods used gave
us motivation to remain calm and see the light at the end of the training tunnel. A great positive
approach to training our dog without getting upset and frustrated.
