smboneHOW IT WORKS

To ensure the highest level of success for your dog, lessons are one on one with you, your dog and your trainer. You will need to choose a primary handler for your dog at each lesson, however it is recommended that all family members be in attendance for the lessons. Your trainer will discuss if it is appropriate to include children in any of the lessons.

smboneTRAINING SUPPLIES

  • collar
  • We start all dogs on a Martingale style collar (as pictured on right).¬†
  • Regular 6‚Äô cotton, nylon or leather leash.¬†
  • Lots of soft, very yummy treats that you can break into tiny pieces.
  • A favorite toy

 Please note:  We recommend only feeding your dog half his/her dinner prior to your training appointment, so they will be motivated by the yummy treats.

smboneYOUR LESSONS

Lessons are typically an hour long, but a pre-determined time frame is not set.  When the dog and handler understand the command and are working together as a team, the lesson is over.  Please set aside this time frame free of any distractions. 

Due to all the variables involved in the training process, lessons could be short of an hour or could go longer.  Please keep this in mind when scheduling your lessons.  The trainer may be 15-20 minutes early or late of your scheduled appointment due to these variables, plus drive time and inclement weather.  If your trainer is going to be more than 15 minutes early or late, s/he will contact you to let you know.
 
Your lesson plans will be sent via email along with your trainer contact information. Please have your lesson plans available along with your House Rules and Exercise Schedule worksheets at every lesson.
 

smboneGOALS

Our goal is to transform the way you interact with your pet in order to have the best possible life-long relationship. We do everything within our power to achieve this objective, with the understanding that you must do your part. It is expected that you follow through with your homework and your trainer’s instructions as you begin to form new habits and make training a way of life.¬† If you have any issues, questions or concerns along the way, we encourage you to contact your trainer via phone or email.

A few things to note:
  • If you are unable to make a scheduled lesson, you must contact your trainer 24 hours prior to your lesson to avoid a $25 cancellation fee.
  • After training, your dog may be tired or a little aloof. This is completely normal.
  • Prior to your lesson, a brisk walk, run or some form of exercise and a potty break is highly recommended and extremely beneficial. It is difficult for your dog to learn with pent-up energy.
 
We very much look forward to working with you and your beloved pet!
 
Happy Training!
