We offer a number of canine related services to the northern New Jersey Area.

When we first speak, we will discuss in detail what issues you are having and what you are looking to improve upon. Once you become a client, we will provide you with a questionnaire, which will be filled out prior to our first appointment. The information in this questionnaire will inform me how to best tailor training and behavior modification specifically to your dog.

Policies:

Some issues may not be able to be covered within a 6 session time frame (such as fear, aggression, and more complex issues).

When we speak, we will discuss the time your issues may need to be addressed to have your dog be successful.

Packages must be pre-paid before the arrival of the trainer for the first lesson.

Three and four session packages must be completed within 3 months and six session packages must be completed within 6 months to ensure continuity of program and learning.

Fees are not refundable.

Fee begins when trainer arrives at your home. We will call if we are running late.

In case of illness or emergency, we will gladly reschedule. If illness, please contact 24 hours prior.

No shows will be fully charged.

Other reschedule requests may result in full or partial appointment fee.

If your dog has bitten in the past, the first and/or second sessions will focus on the desensitization and use of a muzzle to ensure everyone’s safety. When done correctly, dogs can be taught to enjoy wearing a muzzle and many actually will get excited at the sight of it because it was trained and desensitized properly. We know there can be a stigma with a dog wearing a muzzle, but there is nothing to be ashamed of and there is NOTHING safer than a dog who is wearing a muzzle. We are here to help, guide, and support you and have your dog’s and your best interest at heart.

If an aversive device is implemented against our advice (shock collar, vibrating collar, prong collar, choke collar) or aversive techniques are applied (yelling, hitting, throwing items, leash corrections, etc.) we reserve the right to terminate the relationship with no refund given as these techniques can be detrimental to our program and its success.

If a dog is returned, session payment may be applied to a future dog.

No refunds will be given.

 

Advantages of Skype Dog Training:

  1. Provides easy and flexible scheduling – provides much more flexibility in time since there is no travel involved
  2. Location is not a restriction - If you are across the country, you can still take advantage of our many years of education, experience, and credentials to help you get results you are desperate for
  3. Financial perks – Skype training is much cheaper than in-home training since the travel piece is eliminated. Save a few bucks while still getting the help you need!

30 minute Skype session - $40
60 minute Skype session - $65
Three 60 minute Skype sessions - $185
Six 60 minute Skype sessions - $360

 

Each Skype Session will include a very detailed, emailed follow-up report which includes everything that was discussed and accomplished during the session, as well as any tips and advice we think will help you. Also included is lifetime phone, email, and text support to answer any questions that arise throughout your dog’s entire life. We encourage this as the internet is not the best place to decipher accurate information from material that may set back progress you will make.

 

Pre-Pet Counseling

One hour consultation = $50

The majority of people tend to buy a dog simply because they fall in love with it. (Can you blame them?)

Unfortunately, many of these poor dogs wind up in shelters because their owners did not know how to control the behavior of the specific breed, didn’t know their exercise requirements, and so many other reasons.

•The best step to take is to be informed BEFORE you get a dog and we can help you with this.

•We will meet for approximately an hour/hour and a half and discuss everything you are looking for in a pet.

•We will guide you to make the best decision for you, your family, and your new pup!

 

All Training Packages Include:

•Free email and phone support for the life of the dog.

•Personalized emailed homework of what was accomplished in each session.

Refresher Package: 3 one-hour sessions

Meet and Greet Package: 4 one-hour sessions

Does your dog jump all over your guests and visitors in your home? When you’re out walking your dog, do they dirty people’s clothes by saying hello by jumping? Let’s teach them how to greet calmly and politely. We will spend 2 sessions inside and 2 outside, depending on proficiency, working on polite greetings.


A Walk in the Park Package:  4 one-hour sessions starting at home

Is your dog pulling your arm out of the socket when you want to simply take a nice stroll around the neighborhood? When walking is becoming more of a nightmare then fun for you and your dog, it’s time to make a change. We can help teach them that it pays to walk nicely with you!


The Outdoors Package: 4 one-hour sessions

For dogs who have a handle on basic obedience, but owners desire better behavior in public at cafes, restaurants, parks, etc. Would you like to go to an outdoor café or restaurant with your dog and not have to worry about them jumping on the table, stealing your food, and being a nuisance? They have to be taught how to do that and we can help you. You can have an outdoors buddy who listens to you instead of embarrassing you.


Tricks of the Trade Package: 4 one-hour sessions

Are you looking for some other ways to have fun with your dog? What better way than to teach them tricks? This is not only fun, but provides extensive mental stimulation and problem solving for dogs which tires them out and forms an even stronger bond between you. Sit pretty, take and give, put away your toys, paw, roll over, spin, and more to choose from. They’ll have a blast!
