Board and Training Questions and Answers
Question: Why is the recommended length of time 2 weeks for the Board and Training Process ?
Answer: Considering that “relationship change” is being completed by the trainer and in turn transferred to the owner it is not recommended that this process continue beyond the initial 2 week period. Also less than 2 weeks doesn’t allow enough time for relational change to take hold at the level needed. It is also highly recommended that the owner complete at least one Home Visit Session prior to the Board and Training Option.
Question: What type of training methods are used ?
Answer: This one of a kind system is interaction based. As the dog comes into agreement with the process relationship change advances, control issues and unwanted behavior issues diminish. A standard leash and flat collar are the main training tools. This system approaches the training as a relational changing process vs a learning based exercise.
Question: How much does training cost ?
Answer: The total cost of training is $ 2000.00 for the two weeks. 1/2 the fee amount is due upon drop-off and the remainder at pickup. 1 Home Visit Session is included to assist in the process as well as a remote collar system and free lifetime advice for your dog(s).
Question: Do you send updates of training ?
Answer: Yes. You receive your own private page with login information on this website where video updates are posted.
Question: Do you guarantee results ?
Answer: I guarantee that the perceptions of the dog will change for me and so long as the owners follow my advice that this will transfer to the owners. This can be a great option so long as the owners understand their role in the process. This is why I highly recommend a Home Visit Session prior to this process so that the owners have a better understanding of the expectations etc.
Question: What happens once our dog returns back home ?
Answer: To take full advantage of what has been established during training is important to continue to fulfill your dog’s leadership needs while adopting the same methods used during the process. It is recommended that the owner attends the training facility a couple of days prior to the end of the process to receive some one on one instruction. The videos updates also provide training information and demonstrate the methods used.
Question: Do you offer discounts for more than one dog ?
