When you know what to look for and how to respond as a leader with your dog, you will not only have a companion who responds quickly and consistently to your commands, but you will both experience a more peaceful and balanced life together.
The first step in training is a private, hour-long consultation and initial training lesson in your home. During your highly individualized consultation, Jackie will assess your situation and your dog’s needs, while addressing your most pressing concern about your dog’s behavior. You can expect to learn new ways to communicate with your dog, and you will better understand how your dog communicates with you.
The consultation serves as a roadmap for designing the right individualized one-on-one basic training for you and your pack.
Cost: $50, cash or check at conclusion of the consultation.
Time expectations: A one-hour session, scheduled in advance, usually by appointment on the weekend or after 4:30 weekdays.
WITH STRUCTURED TRAINING
Implementing Leadership with Structured Training is a private, highly individualized, six-hour training over a six week period in your home and yard. You will learn how to set up rules, maintain boundaries, and create limitations. More importantly, Jackie will show you how to create a calm and peaceful environment within your pack, whether it's just a pack of two — you and your dog — or a pack of multiple dogs and the whole family. At the conclusion of training, by applying your leadership skills in your daily life with your dog, you can expect your balanced dog or dogs to be patient, calm, and relaxed — no matter what!
During your two-hour training sessions, your dog will learn commands such as come, sit, down, stay, and heel. You will do long leash training, structured walking and kennel training as they apply to your situation. Jackie will demonstrate how to address your issues with your dog, and then work with you until you are confident and able to take appropriate action on your own.
Cost: $300, cash or check at the beginning of the first training session.
Time expectations: Three two-hour sessions, scheduled in advance, usually by appointment on the weekend or after 4:30 weekdays. A minimum of 10 minutes per day practicing “homework” with your dog between sessions.
ADVANCED TARGETED BEHAVIOR TRAINING
After completing basic training, additional personalized one-on-one training is available to target specific behaviors, meet new goals, or prepare for life changes. This training is designed to meet your targeted needs or address specific behavior problems.
Cost: $100 per session, cash or check at conclusion of each training session.
