About this pro

My main goal is to help you intergrate your dog into your home.  Teaching owners how to resolve dog problems, teaching how to teach your dog good manners and basic commands.  Eventually we move on to dog walks.  Most importantly is showing owners how to teach their new family member how to fill the owners' expectations

After years of training dogs as a side line, I have retired from 35 years working in technology.  Now, I am invested in doing what I love.  Training dogs.  Helping people understand their dogs and what the dogs need.

FAQs


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

Talking to the owners and finding what problems they are having with their family member.

Visiting on site and setting expectations.

At least once a week visit with the client to work with the owners and the dog


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

I have spent 14 years training dogs for competitive nose work and obediance. 

I specialize in German Shepherds so large dogs don't intimidate me


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

My expertise is priced at $60 an hour.  This may vary dependent upon distance


How did you get started in this business?

I was so glad to retire from my years in IT so that I can start using the skills I have gained with my hobby of dog training.


What types of customers have you worked with?

I have worked with customers who have gotten dogs for the first time.  People who have dogs that have special physical issues and people who have just started training their pups.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Recently, there was a police involved shooting in the field behind my house.  I was able to use my dog to help locate spent rounds in the field.  


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

If people promise you results without even coming to your home to see the situation you are having with your dog or if they claim to have "fixed this problem a dozen times", walk away.  Every situation is so different, there can be no guarantee.


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

A customer should ask themselves if they are willing to work with their dog and put in the effort to develop a good relationship with their dog.
