Before you contract with me for professional dog training lessons, I recommend an in home dog assessment, which will give me the opportunity to gather pertinent information about your dog. You may have adopted a dog and know very little about your dog’s background or you may have chosen a puppy from a litter that requires an individual approach for the breed of dog you have chosen. Some dogs have a higher drive than others and the training method requires a much different approach. Conducting the dog assessment at your home or where the trouble occurs also helps identify environmental problems where the dog is living and speeds up the training process without guessing on which training method will work best with your dog.
I will identify your dog’s temperament and determine if your dog is for example, characteristically timid, stubborn, distracted, alert, sensitive, independent or fearful. Each one of these characteristics requires a unique dog training approach in order to successfully train your dog.
I will also evaluate your dog’s learning curve which is unique to each individual dog. This assessment will enable me to advise you on how to proceed with the training and which methods will produce the best results. I don’t use a one size fits all approach to dog training. I customize the training to fit you and your dog.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
