Wanted: Awesome Dog Owners!
Thank you for taking a look at our web site. We get a very high number of inquiries, and we do our best to respond to everyone. Our goal is to help as many dog owners overcome their challenges, but it’s a partnership, and we’re looking for high levels of dedication and commitment from our clients to make this happen.
We have a limited number of clients we can take and see for private lessons at a time. We regret that due to the high volume of inquiries we receive, we require pre-payment prior to finalizing new client appointments.
We prioritize our focus as follows:
- Existing clients get top priority for booking private lessons with us.
- New clients that have purchased an initial two-lesson package (online below), and completed our canine_behaviour_history_form (only required for fear/aggression issues) are followed up with immediately for scheduling and booking.
- Email inquiries asking questions that aren’t answered by our web site.
- While we do have a phone # and voicemail, we only check it once a day and we do not play telephone tag.
Who is this for: Owners whose schedules don’t fit evening/weekend group classes, dogs with specific behaviour issues (fear, aggression, etc.), or owners who want very hands-on training that may be location-specific.
Details: For new clients, we require only a two lesson commitment. Initial consults are always 90 minutes in length, so that approximately 45 minutes can be spent on review of history, discussion of theory, and practice exercises, and the remaining 45 minutes can be spent on practical work. Subsequent consults/sessions can be 60 minutes in length. Due to our limited availability for private training, payment must be made in advance to hold your reservations and cancellations/rescheduling require at least 48 hours notice.
Our Service Area (Summer 2013):
In-home lessons are now limited to Downtown West, roughly south of Davenport, as far west as High Park, and as far east as Spadina, south to Liberty Village/King West neighbourhoods. If you are outside of the service area, and the problem is addressable outside the home, we can book appointments out of our Dundas West school near Trinity Bellwoods Park (Dundas and Ossington).
If you are outside of our service area we can refer you to another trainer with similar skills and methodology (email us at email@example.com).
Rate: $85 per hour plus HST.
