....And rightfully so! May I relieve those fears for you:
I served 20 years with the Rochester Police Department and retired in the year 2000. While spending 15 of those years on patrol, I was also a Cerfified NYS Police Instructor for Firearms, Ethics, Conflict Management, and a host of other Law Enforcement Topics. I so enjoy teaching adults as well as toddlers in Sunday School.
Personal One-on-One lessons offered for training your dog in the comfort of your own home. I will customize your training to you and your dog's needs. From new puppy to older dog for basic training to advanced skills. If you don't care for the classroom setting or your dog does not work well among distractions, privates are a great solution.
*Train the whole family in how to work with your dog.
* Train your dog in the environment they live in.
*Work on issues you may be experiencing specifically in the home or neighborhood
*Learn how to understand your dog's behavior and address it in a Force-Free manner.
*Interested in competing in Rally, Obedience or Agility. The basics can be taught in your home.
Behavioral Issuessuch as aggression (fear reactivity), separation anxiety, fear and/or stress are best addressed in the home environment where the dog is comfortable. After an evaluation, a behavior modification plan can be developed. I do no insist on paying up front for a package of visits. I want to meet you and your dog and then you decide on further assistance or not.
After each visit, you will received a written session follow-up report along with video tutorials to help you remember how to do the the skills you were shown. Anyone who has had one appointment with me is invited to Dog Socials on most Sundays with their dog (non-reactive to people or other dogs).
* A fuel charge may be added due to distance over 20 miles from W. Henrietta, NY
I offer packages at a reduced price. You can determine if you would like to buy a group of
visits after our first meeting. Unless it is a simple skill, I suggest a package especially if it is a behavioral issue.
1 home visit - $85
4 home visits - $320
