About this pro

My dog training and grooming shop is located in Gastonia NC, I do in-home dog training as well as board and train at my shop.  I am a graduate of the Animal Behavior College for dog training and a graduate of the New York School of Dog Grooming.  My career began 25 years ago with dog training and 15 years ago with grooming.  I LOVE dogs and have a passion in my profession.  I strive for the best results possible in every situation.  Being an owner operator of my own company means I get to enjoy every aspect of customer interaction.  Exceeding my customers expectations is crucial to my business development.  My prices are fair and very affordable.

My shop provides a 3 week board and train program for $975.  We cover all basic training and some behavior modification. I keep owners up to date on their dogs progress by sending pictures and videos as well as text messages and phone calls.  In-home training for basic obedience is 4 sessions, each lasting about an hour, one session per week and costs $300.  Behavior modification is "as needed" and I charge $75 per one hour session.

My methods are simple and easy to follow.  My goal is to help owners bridge the communication gap with their dogs and make training fun!  

My shop offers,  “after hours” grooming till 8pm.  All grooming is by appointment only.  I typically only work on one dog at a time.

My boarding rates are very affordable!  I charge a flat rate of $20 per dog, per night and $10 if picked up after 12pm on the day they go home.  I only have room for 5 or 6 boarding dogs.  They are kenneled, not crated!  

Working with dogs is relaxing to me. I get alot of satisfaction when the dog owner sees their pet after Im done grooming.  

With dog training...,I like to see the owners begin to enjoy their dogs again.  Training is easy to do, once I show owners how.  

Working with dogs is very satisfying and theraputic for me.  Whether its grooming or training, I love the personal interactions with the dogs.

I like to challenge myself to be the best I can be and strive to exceed my own limitations.  

I understand dogs, I feel as though I can be their voice and help owners begin to understand their canine a bit better.

    One word…FANTASTIC!! Everything they do is fantastic. Mitsy, my beagle/terrier mix and I did three training sessions and she walks 100% better than before. I board her with Will and she loves going there. She comes home smelling SO fresh and clean every time! Use them, you’ll be glad you did

    Will is nice and understanding. He listens very well. Price was extremely reasonable and anyone can afford it. I highly suggest everyone to use Dog Pro Services. They are wonderful

    We did a two week board and train with our dog Millie. The outcome was more than we expected and are happy with how she turned out.

    Will was Amazing with Zena! She is not a “people” dog and Will helped bring her out of her shell. While still shy initially with strangers, she quickly warms up to them with the barking and growling tendecies that she used to have. I highly recommend Dog Pro Services!

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

For my grooming customers, I like to understand their life style so that I can Taylor a custom grooming that is easy to maintain and cost effective.  I find out the history of past grooms and what they liked about it or didn't like about it.  

For my training clients, I like to speak with them about what possible triggers their dog may have that causes certain behaviors.  I address the root of the problem, not minimize it and move on.  I gives me great pleasure to see the bond of a dog and his owner when training begins.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am a graduate of the New York School of Dog Grooming as well as a graduate of the Animal Behavior College for dog training.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

I charge a flat rate of $65 per one hour session for dog training.  Most problems can be fixed in as little as 2 or 3 sessions.  Basic training consists of 4 sessions, one per week, each lasting an hour and costs $260.  Included in this is the five commands,

name response, sit, down, stay, come and loose leash walking.

How did you get started in this business?

I volunteered at the local SPCA when I was very young and fell in love with the idea of making dogs look and act better.  I was addicted.
