    • New Customers:
    • When training a new client’s dog that we have not worked with in the past, one of our trainers will first come to your home for an Initial Consultation and Evaluation. If you purchase the Initial Consultation and Evaluation ($150 + travel charges) and the determination is made to move forward with the “Love Me, Love My Dog” program, that amount (less travel charges) will be applied towards the cost of the program. The goal for the Initial Consultation and Evaluation is (1) to give you realistic expectations for what we believe can be accomplished during the training program; (2) provide a recommendation if lessons should be conducted prior to the “Love Me, Love My Dog” stay; and (3) determine if the client’s level of commitment will help achieve the desired results. For all clients, we require veterinarian documentation of current distemper vaccination, rabies vaccination, and a negative fecal completed within the last six (6) months.
    • Behavioral Issues:
    • When training a client’s dog that has behavioral issues (such as post-puppy house-breaking, certain types of reactivity, minimal trainability, or excessive stubbornness), our trainers will necessarily spend an extensive amount of dedication and time above and beyond what is normally required when working with other dogs. An additional fee is added to the cost of the regular “Love Me, Love My Dog” program.
    • – Additional charge of $45/day
    • Additional Notes for “Love Me, Love My Dog”:

    • Board and Maintenance – Your dog will come to stay with one of our professional trainers in the trainer’s own home. They will be loved and cared for as if they were part of our family. This is primarily a boarding program; no new training will be conducted. It is meant for clients who are traveling and want their dog to stay in a structured environment while they are away. Your trainer will practice previously taught and refined commands to upkeep their current level of training. This program is not meant to teach refinement of commands, but instead maintain your dog’s current level without regression.
