WHAT TO EXPECT
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. We will teach your dog new skills in these lessons and you'll walk away with exercises to work on at home. How frequently and how often you come back for more training depends on a few things. What your goals are, what behaviors your dog is currently showing, where your current handling and training skills are, and how dedicated you are to following through on the training. I don't offer packages of lessons, I want to place the responsibility of following up with more training in your hands. After we meet for our initial consultation, I am available to answer some questions and give feedback on videos via email. However, there may be instances where I recommend additional lessons. Most clients see me at least two or three times within a two month period then follow up as needed.
LOCATIONS AND AVAILABILITY
I see appointments during the day on Thursdays and occasionally Saturdays out of the Simply Rawsome office in Bloomington, MN. As we approach Winter where weather and road conditions change frequently, my In Home availability is updated weekly as good weather shows on the forecast. My travel range includes clients who live 25 minutes outside of Downtown Minneapolis and clients who live in suburbs along 35W between Minneapolis and Rush City, MN (where I live). If you do not live inside my travel range, you are welcome to schedule a lesson at Simply Rawsome! If you are not sure if you are included in my range,
send me an email with your address and I will let you know.
Recently there has been a lot of discussions of another round of shut downs happening in MN. In preparation for these restrictions I have added Virtual lessons back to my offerings. If you choose to book an in person lesson whether in home or at Simply Rawsome, masks and distancing are required but you also understand the risk involved. If you have come in contact with someone who has tested positive, have tested positive yourself, or are feeling ANY symptoms I ask that you reschedule. I will do the same.
CANCELLATIONS AND RESCHEDULING
There is no penalty for cancelling or rescheduling. As we come into winter and driving conditions get worse, we may reschedule due to weather. I try to give as much time in advance as possible if I need to cancel and I ask that you do the same. Keep in mind that I live an hour outside of the cities and may need to cancel if roads are bad. I will watch the forecast and be in contact with you as much as possible prior to our lesson.
