How Can I Help?

If you’re unsure of what training you and your dog would benefit from, an initial consult is a great place to start. This is a great time for you to meet the trainer, and she can start working with you to build a custom program for your pup!

Our initial consult is different because when you sign-up with us within 48hrs of your initial consult, it becomes your first session; when you sign-up for any of our private sessions, this fee drops off of your total package price.

FEE: $108 (taxes included)

Initial consults are usually
45 minutes to 1.5 hours long.

Frequently Asked Questions

What types of dog do you work with?

“No Bad Dogs” means no breed discrimination. We work with companion dogs and specialize in working breeds/more serious breeds.

What is the investment?

Initial consults are $108 for one dog, or $216 for a multi-dog home.

Does my dog need to have vaccinations?

Yes, unless you’re planning to do virtual training, your dog does need to have their vaccinations up to date. Pups need to be up to date on vaccinations (minimally 2nd set of vaccinations) and be 10 weeks+ for in-person sessions. Dogs with full titer results and a signed veterinary note are also acceptable.  

What results do you guarantee?

You are welcome to discuss this at any point during your training program sessions. Generally results are not guaranteed, as there are so many variables in training. However, I can help you set realistic training goals, according to what progress and training I see happening with you and your dog; I can also give you tools to help you and your dog achieve those goals. 

Is my dog too young for training?

Getting training and proper socialization ASAP for young pups is extremely important. There is a crucial socialization period that closes between the 3-6month period, where is it exceptionally important to know how to introduce your pup properly to new things and build confidence. That being said, if you miss this time period, there is still A LOT we can do to help build confidence and introduce proper socialization. Especially during the different fear periods that often occur up to around 2 yrs. 

Is my dog too old for training?

Absolutely NOT! Any dog who is cognitively normal is capable of learing new things. Many older dogs can hugely benefit from: learning how to calm their minds, more structure, living more balanced lived, etc. Owners can be taught how to help their dogs (and themselves) live less stressful lives at any age.

How it works

 

We can assess in your home, or often where the issue is. We are often able to assess and train in real life situations. 

Why is this beneficial?

Setting up an initial consultation allows the trainer to assess your dog(s), gives you a good starting point, allows you to meet the trainer and see our training style, and starts to get all household members on the same page.
