How does Day Training work?
First, we start with a free evaluation
This visit has two objectives: getting to know each-other and setting your specific goals. We’ll talk about what you’d like to achieve with your dog, how long that might take, how it all works and, if you’re interested, fill out the paperwork to get started as early as possible.
Then, we train your dog!
Day training happens between 11am and 5pm, Monday through Thursday. The exact time your trainer will arrive depends on the schedule and location of other clients, but you will be given an approximation at the start of every week
(eg: between 1pm and 3pm).
Your trainer will arrive, either take your dog to an appropriate location or stay on the premises, work on your goals, then leave!
Finally, we have transfer sessions.
Transfer sessions are what makes all of this work. Your trainer will teach you how to reproduce what they taught your dog and how to make sure the behavior stays solid over time. There are 30 minutes of transfer time allotted per two-week period, but your trainer may recommend banking them up for later in some cases.
How long will it take to train my dog?
Below, you’ll find a table with guidelines for the behaviors people usually want trained.
Your trainer may recommend something different based on your specific needs and your dog’s training history. It is also important to note that, since dogs are living individuals with their own learning ability, emotions and motivations, we cannot guarantee that a result will be obtained after any specific amount of time.
