Basic Information about the Family Life Training Program
Our Family Life Training program is not your ordinary obedience class. There is no walking round and round in an endless circle with 10 other dogs and one instructor. The Family Life training program is private so each session is specifically and individually designed for your dog and your family life!
All of the training sessions will only use positive reinforcement – we’ll use rewards, including treats and/or toys, and lots of verbal praise! Every session is FUN! for your dog and for you – because dogs learn best when they are engaged and happy.
Prior to Our First Meeting
You can fill out the Consultation Form online and I’ll receive it by email. This will give me a little background on you and your dog. Don’t worry if it doesn’t cover everything. When we meet for our free consultation, you may have a few things you’d like to add and I may have a few more questions for you.
Once I receive your Consultation Form, I will respond in 24 hours or less to set up our free consultation!
Our First Meeting
I offer a free, no obligation consultation at my training center in White Bear Lake. Meeting you and your dog prior to the first lesson helps me develop a training plan based on your input and your dog’s personality. Every situation is as individual as you and your dog are, and my training plan is truly adapted to your lifestyle and needs.
If you are unable to come to the training center, I’m happy to offer the free, no obligation consultation by phone.
After the free consultation, you can decide if you’d like to make an appointment for the first lesson.
Our First Lesson
We can schedule our first lesson at a time that’s convenient for you, including evenings and weekends. After we complete the first lesson, you can decide if you’d like to pay for that lesson and continue scheduling on a lesson-by-lesson basis, if you’d like to pay for only that one lesson and stop training, or if you’d like to pay for the discounted 4-session package (Best Deal!). See our pricing page
You may want to schedule future sessions every week, every two weeks, or every 3-4 weeks – it all depends on your availability! Allowing enough time for training in between lessons is an important part of how successful your dog will be. But leaving too much time between sessions can create learning boredom in your dog. We can talk about what works best for you. Being able to schedule sessions when you and your dog are ready is a great advantage in private training!
