People are surprised when I talk them out of the In-House options for training. The reason for this, is that most of the dogs I am asked to work with, have the problems in context to their home environment and/or in their relationship with their owner. The actual teaching of the obedience is very simple in the big picture. Giving the owners the confidence and the skillset to deal with that kind of dog on a daily basis is where the success comes from. If I can’t teach the owners how to interact with the dog in their daily lives, the program will fail. So the more the owner is involved, the better chance the end result will be success in both my eyes and that of the owner’s.

It is a very rewarding and bonding experience for you to be able to train your own dog. I teach you how to train your dog in obedience at your pace while working on other layers of the triangle such as Leadership/Pack Structure.

Often even aggression can be successfully worked through and managed with private lessons.

I am often asked how long it will take to train a dog to do this or to do that. The answer is always the same: it depends. I know this is not the answer most people want to hear. I can give estimates based on my initial consultation and experience, but it ultimately depends on you. The speed at which you and your dog progress, will be in direct correlation to how much time and effort you are able to put into the training. We will successfully reach your goals, and I will move as quickly as you are comfortable with, but the time frame with which they are reached is going to be dependent upon you.

So the answer of: it depends, is not a way of getting out of answering the question. I feel with the proper explanation, this is the only realistic and honest answer anybody should give.
