We Recommend

zuniquely

Base Price = $45.00 for 30 minute training session

Initial Consultation = $120 (1 hr. minimum not to exceed 2 hrs.)

The goal of the initial Consultation is to meet you and your pet in a relaxed setting, to observe your pet in his or her home setting exhibiting natural behavior and finally to gain a shared vision of your conditioned pet upon completion of training and to outline a strategy for accomplishing this together.


Weekly Training Sessions - 1 hour sessions (recommended)

$90.00 Per Session - Number of sessions needed varies based on the needs and skills of the pet, the type and number of skills being taught, and the consistency with which the skill is properly reinforced by the pet owner in-between sessions.

This program is geared toward the individual that wants to learn a training technique and then work with their pet  throughout the week to reinforce that behavior so that "Sparky" or "Coco" is ready to progress to the next stage of his or her training for the next week's session!  By taking this active role in your pup's training you will build a stronger bond by developing a positive trainer/trainee relationship and a dynamic language through which to communicate. This type of interactive bond is very different than the parent/pet-child relationship that your pet is used to.   While the relaxed parent/pet-time at home grows stronger with less frustration and more manageability, there is also more fun time and clearer communication at work because your pet will quickly learn the difference between "play time" and  when it is time to "work" for his or her treats.  Everyone is happier earning their income!


 Bi-Weekly / Tri-Weekly Trainings - 30 minute Sessions   May be extended depending on the skill being taught or based on client's needs.

$45.00 Per 30 minute Session, Any additional time prorated accordingly. Number of sessions needed varies based on the needs and skills of the pet, the type and number of skills being taught.

This program is geared toward the individual that is available to meet 2-3 times throughout the week for  quick 30 minute sessions to observe your pet in training.  Here, the reinforcement is done by Wayne, The dog trainer guy, but as you observe these session,  you too are learning the training  techniques.  I recommend three consistent weeks of bi-weekly or, better yet, tri-weekly sessions so that your pet develops a strong foundation for each desired skill.  Once this foundation is established we can tailor the sessions down to once a week where the pet owner works directly with his or her pet under Wayne's instruction to ensure proper clicker technique, timing and honing of skills.  Every animal is different just as every pet owner is his or her own individual; hence, some more demanding pups will respond more readily to this strategy as will those pet owner that want to develop a life long skill!
