Dog Owner Training Rates
First, I request that you arrange to come here with your dog to Harmony Farm Kennel and Lamb, at Monte Lake, near Kamloops BC, for a personal meet and greet introduction for a consultation. At that time, I will access both you and your dog’s perspectives of daily life and the established hierarchy. I will describe and explain my training approach and answer any questions you may have. If we both consider training a good fit we will then coordinate our schedules to plan a program that works best for all.
Consultations are $100.00 and usually are about 1-2 hours.
Dog Owner Training Sessions
Dog and owner training sessions are just that – dog and owner training. Dogs actually are the easy part (and least expensive to teach!) I will get you both started with a one on one session and we will be on ‘dog time’ which could vary from 45 minutes to 2 hours. Price is $100.00 per session. Please note that owners should not be on a timed schedule for these training sessions. Focus is key and cell phones will have to stay in the car. Taking notes to review is suggested and questions are expected!
Board and Train Opportunity
What I offer is not about training your dog for you. There is no possibility that anyone but the owner can have the love invested in your dog that you do, therefore, only you can be in the alpha position to expect respect and recognition as such. Your dog shouldn’t be looking to a trainer for answers or for love – that is your place and needs to be to your credit. The intention of any possible board and train opportunity is to help expedite consistent learning for your dog and to help work out any strong opposition, habitual behaviours and or confusions. Your participation will be expected and scheduled with ideal timing. Board and train sessions with your dog may be isolated to just me working you’re your dog or could be best combined with sessions of you working with your dog also. I will guide and teach so that together training will enhance your position of building a lasting relationship with your dog, establishing clear messages with consistency that is effective and progressive.
Board and train is only offered one week (5 days) at a time at the rate of $85.00 per day which includes several short dog training sessions per day with your dog as well as custom care dog boarding.
At the end of each board and train week you will be expected to join our work for a review of your dog’s progress. (You will have homework as well.) This review session is included in the board and train price. Any additional sessions of owner training that is deemed necessary will be charged independently.
