Training with us starts with an in-home consultation where we meet with the family and dog. We discuss and address any behavioral issues. It is here that we begin to educate and lay the foundation for the training process. Consultations are very thorough and typically last from one to one and one-half hours.
During the initial consultation, questions are asked and specific problem areas addressed, along with making sure that all leadership skills are in place. Leadership skills form the foundation for all obedience training, and they can reduce and/or correct many behavioral issues.
Our one-to-one training is personalized and it focuses entirely on you and your dog as individuals.
Complex behavioral issues are sometimes hard to work through, and often, people give up on their dogs because they feel isolated. Behavioral issues can be embarrassing and hard to work through. These are the reasons why we are always readily available to offer ongoing support and address any intermittent problems between lessons – if not immediate, then within a few hours.
Lessons are taught in our lovely new and modern clean training facility in Avon Lake, where we offer inside and outside training spaces.
Training should be fun for you and your dog. We always make sure that lessons include an element of free time, which can be anything from off-leash play to socializing. One of the Ali’s dogs are always happy to engage in the end-of-lesson play.
