FAQs 

 
 

 Common Questions We Get Asked

  • How old does the puppy have to be to start training?
    Puppies generally move in with their forever family as young as 8-9 weeks old.  That is a great age to start!

  • Can you teach an old dog new tricks?
    Yes, you certainly can and your older dog will enjoy the training!

  • How long does it take to get results?
    If you are teaching new behaviors you can often see results within minutes.

  • Can the whole family help train?
    Yes, the dog is part of your family and spends most of his time with the family.  Our goal is for the whole family to enjoy the time training your four legged friend, creating a lifetime bond.

  • Does it take a lot of time to train?
    Not at all.   With the techniques we will teach you, results are often seen within minutes.  Two 5 minute training sessions with your dog is recommended per day.

  • Do you use punishment in your training?
    No, we will teach you and or your family how to use positive reinforcement to get proven results.  You will enjoy the training as will your furry friend.  You will find you will both look forward to the training.

  • What if I have a question prior to our next lesson?
    It can be difficult to remember everything from week to week.  Or maybe a new situation has come up and you're not sure how best to address it.  I will be available at no extra charge by phone or email  to answer your questions for an additional 30 days after the last lesson with a 5 week program.
