summer school:  remedial work

This package is all about the basics.  We will customize a package based on your goals. Every pup learns at a different pace, but usually, we can work on 2-5 skills depending on complexity, starting point, what level of proficiency you want, and your practice time between sessions.

 

Who is this package for?

  • Puppies age 11 months and up and dogs of all ages who need work on manners skills, whether it's a little polish or working toward fluency in public places

  • Great for newly adopted dogs or dogs who need to go back to basics

 

What do I get? 

  • (4) 45-minute in-person training sessions

  • We drive to your home for lessons but may also arrange to meet at a vet clinic, or sometimes at a public place like a park or shopping center depending on what you're working on

  • You will receive notes after each session including options to view video and/or articles to help you remember the training homework

  • You can text, email, or call with questions outside of sessions.

  • You can take a week off if needed for vacation or just a break, no problem.

 

How often do I see the trainer?

  • You can meet with your trainer for one package only or set up multiple packages back to back, but billed as you need them, if your puppy is young and you want comprehensive help as your puppy grows up.

  • You can schedule lessons about every 7 to 14 days depending on what's best for your schedule and your practice time between sessions. You can take a week off if needed for vacation or just a break, no problem.

  • You can take a few weeks off to practice between packages or during vacations.

  • You have 6 months to use each package in case life gets hectic and you need to pause work, but they do expire at that time.

  • Add on another package to add more skills anytime, or, keep working on the same skills, and work to build fluency - being able to do things in distracting environments at a distance and/or for a long duration of time.

Do I have to be there?

  • Ideally, someone in your family can be present to ask questions and participate and share info with the rest of the family, but life gets hectic. If you want the trainer to come when you aren't there, that can be arranged.

  • The trainer will do the lesson and take video, then later will upload video clips explaining what was done to an unlisted YouTube account and provide the links to you so you can practice. The trainer will take your puppy out for a potty break during the session, also. This work is an extra $10 per lesson.

  • If you can't attend and don't have time to practice, you may wish to ask us about board & train options we recommend in the area.
