WHAT TO EXPECT FROM WORKING WITH US.
Private Coaching involves a lot of discussion and education of you, the owner. In an initial consultation and throughout a training program with me, I will be evaluating your dog as well as your handling skills and abilities. I'll ask important questions that will help me get to the bottom of the issues you're seeing with your dog, what your home environment is like, and what your goals for your dog are. I put effort into learning as much as I can about you so that I can help you set realistic expectations for our training plan.
Every person learns a little differently and each of them come with a different set of skills and previous training knowledge. I enjoy the process of personalizing my coaching for you to help you learn and evolve into a better dog owner. However, I've been in this game long enough to know what skills most clients need work on before we can dive in to address the bigger issues. I want to help you rebuild your relationship and understanding of your dog so that whatever obstacles you face in the future are easily tackled.
I like to see my clients every one to two weeks to make sure we're staying on track. I'm always available through email for questions and am happy to support you in between lessons as best as I can.
BOOKING PROCESS & RATES
To begin working with me, book your initial consultation by clicking the BOOK NOW button below. This meeting provides us with time to get to know each other and to get to the root of the issues you're facing. You'll walk away with a better understanding of why your dog is behaving the way they are and a realistic plan for what we can do to get you on track with your goals. My official recommendations for how many lessons we'll need will be made after this meeting.
If you'd like more information about me and what I do before committing to a consultation, we can schedule a 30 minute phone consultation at no charge.
There are three options for locations we can meet that match your comfort level and budget. Masks will be worn for all indoor lessons and social distancing will be practiced when outdoors.
IN YOUR HOME
If you live within 30 minutes of Downtown Minneapolis, I will come to you and meet you in your home. We can meet inside or in your backyard. The initial visit is 60 minutes and costs $150. Packages are available.
If staying outdoors makes you more comfortable and/or you want to save a few dollars, we can meet at a quiet park in Columbia Heights. I know this park well and train here often. It is a great, safe place to work with any dog including ones with issues with other dogs.
The initial visit is 60 minutes and costs $100. Packages are available.
If you're outside of the Twin Cities and/or you prefer not to meet in person, virtual lessons are available. These take place via Google Meet and you do not need any fancy software or memberships to participate. The initial meeting is 60 minutes and costs $75. Packages are available.
