Sometimes people are not sure if the training style is suitable for themselves and their dog. Sometimes, as a trainer, we are not sure if we can assist or not. By offering an initial consultation we can meet and work together and assess the issues and answer questions about the training and decide how to proceed.

The Training Head Halter is a training tool that helps with communication as well as providing physical control if a dog is very strong. The halter looks like a bridle on a horse, but without a bit. The dog is able to bark, pant, drink and even bite when wearing the halter. It doesn't hurt them as the pressure points are all on bone, unlike collars and check chains which press on soft cartilage. Some dogs are not able to wear a training halter as they have very short snouts (Bulldogs, Pugs, some Cavvies etc) so a training collar can be used.
$165.00 for Puppy Group ( Puppies from 8 weeks to 6 months of age: 6 lessons plus a training halter)
$175.00 for Beginner Group (Dogs 6 months of age and upwards: 6 lessons plus a training halter)
$175.00 for Intermediate Group (6 more-challenging lessons for dogs who have completed either a 6 week private course or the 6 session Beginner Group classes)
