Lately, I have been getting calls about training from owners of dogs that they have just adopted or purchased and they are looking for training. When I ask what their goals are for the training, they say, I want him to come when I call him, sit/stay, not jump on people, not run out the front door, not counter surf, not go to the bathroom in the house. etc, etc. If those are your goals, then in home training in the best value for your dollar. Group classes are great for some dogs ! But, how may I ask are you going to potty train, teach him not to run out the front door, not try to get food off your kitchen counters, come back when he gets loose out the front door, not jump on your guests and the furniture if you are not in YOUR HOME. Isn’t that where the problems are? I have trained many dogs who have attended group classes, BUT they do all of the above because these are things better learned in your OWN environment. Yes, I have to charge more than the $99 group rate because I have to drive to and from your home, but once there I am giving your dog 100% of my attention for the entire lesson. No other students to interrupt and give attention to, just you and your dog. Isn’t your new dog worth that much?
