7. Preparation For Your Session

Greeting and Normalizing the Presence of Guests

Normally recommended for most of my dog training clients…

Learning good social skills with people is important. If you are booking a dog obedience session, a behavior modification session or a psychological rehab and b-mod session with me…

I recommend that you arrange to have one or more family members, friends or neighbors drop by while I am at your home so that I have an opportunity to work with you and your dog on good social skills and manners around the ringing of the door bell, greeting of guests and presence of guests in your home.

My Arrival at Your Home

It is important for me to see what normally occurs in your household regarding interactions with you, your dog and typical situations.  In support of this, please allow your dog(s), puppy(ies) to greet me as he/she would greet any other individual coming to your home.

8. After Session Follow-Up

After the session (later that day, or the following day)

  • I put together a customized package of information and reference material designed to reinforce what we covered in your session
  • You receive your Session Follow-up Guide via email

9. Additional Support Services

See phone and email consultations

10.0 Assessments

I do not require that my clients do an assessment prior to doing a session. If for any reason you would like me to assess your situation for you prior to doing a session I would be pleased to do a consultation with you.
