I absolutely love animals. I have found a passion for training. I will be getting my Master certificate later this year I hope. I treat eveey animal as if it was my own. Teach the owner and dog tricks of the trade. Love to see the dog happy and the owner pleased. All about customer satisfaction and satisfaction with the dog! Positive reinforcement training along with discipline as well. Can train on /off leash. Can and will use different methods and leashes. Will dicuss and figure out best method of training for each client!!
The animal and owners life changing. Becoming open to what the animals true wants and needs are. Making it easier for the owner and a happier dog!
I’ve had one lesson with Brett and I liked the way he was organized and that he jumped right in to take Yogi on his first walk on a lead around his neck. (I was using a harness to walk him.) Brett is very knowledgeable about dog - and human!! -behavior. He explained all he was doing while he was walking with Yogi. Then I tried to walk with Yogi to keep teaching him how to heal. Well, right away Brett was able to see I was tense. He encouraged me to loosen up / relax. It made such a difference. It’s been just four days and my little 8 pound puppy walks right next to me, no pulling on the lead, and he sits down whenever I stop on our walk. He even stays sitting if I’m talking to a neighbor or the mail lady!!! I am more than pleased with our first lesson. We are excited to learn so much more!
Begin by asking what their concerns and expectations are. Try and give them an outline of the services i provide and also an outline of the training i believe would be best for the dog! Set up a package of training and sessions. Meet and greet with both the dog and owner. Sign a simple training agreement and get straight to training.
Personal training with my dog and friends dogs along with customers as well. Trying to grow my clientele. Will be trying to get my Master certification in dog training this year if i can get into the intense school.
Right now since im not certified yet. Im offeeing lessons between 60-75 dollars for an hour session. Depending on the needs and wants of the owner. I also would prefer setting up a package deal, as itbnormally takes multiple lessons for even basic obedience. Can discuss and make changes just depends on the situation.
I fell in love this past year while I was getting my dog trained. Have since continued her training, sharpened my skills with friends dogs and clients as well. I have always loved dogs and this puts a smile on my face knowing I've helped the owner but most importantly the dog to have the best life they can have.

Just meet the person , watch the interaction with the animal. Give the training an opportunity to work don't expect overnight results even though that can happen. Listen to the things they ask you to work on between sessions as the work at home is key! Trust your gut usually yourself and your dog will let ya know if its a good fit.
Time they will need to put in
Willing for the trainer to break habits. Teach new habits.
Cost, package deal? New leash , training needs??
