FAQ

WHAT ARE TRAINING REQUIREMENTS FOR GROUP CLASS?
-Previously learned foundations, if you’re registering for an advanced class (Anything higher than level 1)
-No behavior concerns such as anxiety or aggression. 

DO YOU OFFER PRIVATE, ONE-ON-ONE TRAINING?
We do! We only allow a few privates a week so please be patient when booking. Your dog will receive specialized training tailored to fit their exact needs and to reach your goals for them. We can train your dog and teach you how to maintain progress and implement structure into your daily routine. 

HOW DO I GET STARTED?
You can register for class by filling out our contact form. If you’d prefer a more personal experience, we offer private one-on-one sessions a few days a week. All students must be pre-registered for group classes or privates before attending. 

DO YOU OFFER A GUARANTEE? WHAT KIND OF SUPPORT DO I GET WHEN I WORK WITH YOU?
Because we work with living, breathing, free-thinking people and animals, we do not offer any guarantees. However, we offer you support and guidance every step of the way! You are always more than welcome to email us with questions. Success rates are much higher for clients who commit to consistency and spend atleast 10-15 minutes working with their dog each day!

WHAT ISSUES, OR TRAINING GOALS WON’T YOU WORK WITH?
I am not able to train dogs for any kind of protection work or police work, and I am not willing to take on dogs with aggression or severe anxiety of any kind. We have referrals for clients who need behavior modification or veterinary behaviorist referrals. 

I JUST SIGNED MY DOG UP FOR TRAINING, WHAT CAN I EXPECT?  
Fast paced fun and excitement, reward based training, advanced skill sets, manners, socialization, learning how to read your dog's body language, discussions and handouts, weekly assignments that improve your dogs focus, and concentration!

HOW OLD SHOULD DOGS BE BEFORE STARTING A TRAINING PROGRAM?
Puppies can begin training the day they come home, ideally around 8 weeks. While we believe it is important to keep your dog safe from infectious diseases, it is also imperative that you socialize your puppy to many places, people and animals. 

WHAT HAPPENS IF I HAVE ANY PROBLEMS AFTER MY DOG FINISHES A TRAINING PROGRAM?
We are there for you and will return if new problems arise or old ones resurface. We offer a lifetime of online support to all of our clients. 

I DON’T HAVE A BAD DOG, CAN MY DOG STILL BENEFIT FROM TRAINING? 
Your dog does NOT have to be naughty to begin training. The purpose is to PREVENT your dog from ever becoming “bad”. Training is all about communication and is a life saving skill. Training makes living with your dog easier. At the very least, your dog should know basic obedience and household manners. 

WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT? 
Cash, check or credit via Square Invoicing.

I THINK MY DOG IS TOO OLD, CAN YOU STILL HELP US? 
Absolutely, as long as your dog is willing and able! Not to sound cliche, but old dogs DO love to learn new tricks. Problem behaviors do not need to last a lifetime, you can get help for your dog at any age as long as they have the motivation.

I SEE YOU’RE BASED IN ASBURY PARK. DO YOU TRAIN OUTSIDE OF THE AREA, OR DO WE HAVE TO COME TO YOU?
We do have a training facility in Asbury that all clients are welcome to travel to. At this time we do NOT travel more than 15 minutes out of Asbury Park.
