Pupstart offers dog "obedience" training in your home.
There are quotation marks around "obedience" because training your dog is about two-way communication with a different species. Yes, you need rules and boundaries, and yes, your dog must do as you say. However, this is not to be confused with the actual work of training your dog to respond reliably. That is what Pupstart will teach you how to do. If your children practice with the dog, the dog will even "listen" to them!
We start with an INITIAL CONSULT. Plan on 90 minutes to two and an initial investment of $142.50 to $190.00. You'll have plenty to work on after the first visit! After that visit, you decide how to proceed with training. If you prefer group training classes, I will refer you to colleagues who also use positive reinforcement training. There is no pressure to buy a discounted package from me.
FAMILY COACHING PACKAGES
$270 (3-pack) or $340 (4-pack)
This is a class with your family in your home customized based on your needs. Scheduling is very flexible and includes Sunday afternoon or evening. Pupstart provides ongoing support during and after Family Coaching.
PAY AS YOU GO
After the Initial Consult, we schedule appointments on an as-needed basis.
$500/week (two-week minimum)
After the Initial Consult, you decide which skills you'd like your dog to have. Commonly desired skills: COME, SIT, LIE DOWN, OFF, DOWN/STAY and SIT/STAY WAIT, KENNEL UP, LEAVE IT, and DROP IT. During a Day Training package, Pupstart privately tutors your dog for you in your home four days per week. Throughout the process, you'll be updated and will learn how to maintain your dog's skills during weekly "knowledge transfer sessions" with your entire family. Each custom Day Training package is planned to make training "stick" as long as you follow through.
Pupstart takes cash, check with photo ID, and credit cards with Square.
