A list of frequently asked questions to help you understand how it works.
1. Do I need to do anything or get anything before the first session?
All you need to have is tasty dog treats on hand (because you know which treats are your pup’s favourites!) and know what you want to get out of training (what’s your goal?). Other than that, I bring everything else.
2. How much does it cost for dog training?
The 2019 dog training prices for Paws, Claws & Tails are as follows:
$20 for in-home puppy training
$30 for in-home dog training
$50 for a in-home dog behaviour consultation
3. Do you run obedience/dog training classes?
No not yet, at the moment I only do in-home dog training, puppy training and behaviour consultations. I am hoping to open up formal dog obedience classes very soon.
4. What is the best age to start dog training?
Dogs of any age can be trained- obviously for an older dog (with habits) it will take a little longer than a puppy who has not formed any bad habits yet. Therefore, it is in your (the dog’s owner) best interest to begin training your puppy as young as possible. The good thing about my in-home puppy training sessions is that you don’t need to wait for your puppy to get his vaccinations as he/she will not be coming into contact with other dogs.
5. Is it ever too late to start training a dog?
All dogs can be trained- for older ones it may take a little longer. If your puppy’s all grown up but you still want to begin training your dog- take a look at my in-home dog training service.
