Initial Consultation Instructions

To prepare for your consult, please have your questions ready, a notepad and pen to take notes as needed, and that other distractions are put on hold (deliveries, calls, television, etc...) so that we can make the most of our time together.

Policies and Payment

  1. Do not feed your dog before the session. If the session is outside of meal time (more than 1 hour) have small, smelly, special, soft, treats ready to use for the session (for example: Natural Balance, low fat cheese, cut up hot dog, cheerios, canned chicken-rinsed). Small pea-sized treats are best. If the training session occurs around a meal time we can use your dog’s kibble.

  2. Be prepared to take extra notes during the session so you can refer back if necessary. Often times clients like to jot down details that I may not include in my summary.

  3. Payment accepted by cash, check or email transfer. NSF checks are subject to bankfees charged to me and subsequent payments will be cash or email transfer only.

  4. Training Packages are to be paid in full at the first session. There are no refunds once sessions have begun.

  5. Puppy Sessions must be completed within 4 months of the first session, all others by 6 months, unless other arrangements are made or forfeit.

  6. Last minute session cancellations (less than 24 hours) are subject to forfeit.

  7. Skype or Face Time sessions for troubleshooting are free for clients as part of package pricing.

  8. All prices and policies subject to change without notice
