Does your dog…
- Pull on the leash when out for walks around the neighborhood?
- Jump on your guests – or you – when someone comes in the door?
- Surf your kitchen counters looking for forbidden treasures?
Chew up your TV Remote, shoes, and anything they can find?
Ignore you when you call them to come in from the yard?
Bark excessively at anything and everything?
We Can Help!
NOTE: Due to an exceptionally busy training calendar, we are currently unable to accept new clients for good manners training. We hope to begin taking new clients in the Spring, 2022. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Step 1. With all new clients, we begin with a comprehensive consultation (masked) in your home to assess your dog. We discuss your training goals, demonstrate / coach you on some initial training skills, provide management strategies for any immediate behavior concerns, and determine the most appropriate action plan for you and your dog.
After the appointment, you receive a detailed written evaluation, as well as educational handouts and a customized training plan for moving forward. NOTE: Our methods are based in the science of positive reinforcement / reward based training, using treats as rewards.
The cost of is $225 if you live in *Bloomington/Normal, and the session lasts about 90 minutes. (Click for info about our Puppy Training.)
Step 2. After the initial consultation, Bob will customize a training plan based on your dog’s assessment and your training goals. We offer two options for follow-up training:
Bob customizes a training package for you and coaches you through the steps to transform your dog’s behavior.
In between sessions, you and your dog practice with fun tricks and training games.
