What to do before the training drop off and group sessions?
MAKE SURE WE HAVE A COPY OF UPDATED SHOT RECORDS, DO NOT FEED BEFORE TRAINING, BRING DAILY FOOD IN A MARKED BAG, HAVE YOU DOG ISE THE RESTROOM BEFORE ENTERING TRAINING FIELD.
What to expect from the drop off and group sessions?
YOU SHOULD EXPECT A TIRED DOG, YOU SHOULD RECEIVE A VIDEO OF ITEMS COVERED AND WHAT TO PRACTICE AT HOME. GROUP SESSIONS ARE VERY SIMPLE, WE BUILD AN ATMOSPHERE FOR YOU TO PRACTICE WITH DISTRACTIONS, EACH CLASS HAS A TOPIC WE WILL DISCUSS AND PRACTICE. OUR TRAINERS WILL BE IN THE FIELD TO ASSIST.
I assume at home we would need to practice the skills you teach, so let us know what is expected of dog owners at home as well?
WE EXPECT CLIENTS TO PRACTICE WITH THEIR DOG IN THEIR ENVIRONMENT. WE BUILD FOUNDATIONS AND SHAPE BEHAVIORS WITH DISTRACTIONS. WE KNOW YOUR DOG WILL LISTEN TO US, WE NOW NEED THEM TO LISTEN TO YOU. BUILD CONSISTENCY.
Should we plan the drop offs once a week or at what cadence?
THIS TRULY DEPENDS ON CLIENTS SCHEDULE AND DOGS WILLINGNESS TO LEARN. ALSO SOMETIMES BUDGET, AND AGE OF DOG COMES INTO AFFECT.
