Commonly Asked Questions
When is In-Home Behavior Training Needed?
With an in-home training session for behavior or obedience, we will take the time to fully understand your dog, personal situation, an environment to customize a training solution that works best for you and your dog. From the very first lesson, you will receive and practice training solutions that will make a difference.
You have the choice at the end of your first lesson to either work the training plan on your own, or buy a 4-hour package for follow-up training. Follow-up training enables us to make sure you are executing the training properly and skillfully, and allows us to make adjustments based on how your dog responds.
With a 4-hour package, we can also break down the training into smaller, more manageable pieces that build on one another to get the end result.
We will either come to your home or where the problem behavior occurs (like at a public walking area for leash aggression). We travel almost the entire Twin Cities metro area. Please see the Pricing & Payment section for more details!
Booking Fee - Training Deposit (NOT AN ADDITIONAL FEE)
No-shows and cancellations within 48 hours will not be refunded their $50 booking fee. Prior to 48 hours from your scheduled session, the $50 booking fee is refundable. No refunds are available on the 4-hour package. The package value expires after 4 months.
Our In-Home Behavior Trainers:
Q: How do I pay at the end of my session?
A: We accept all credit cards, cash and checks at the training session.
Q: Do I have to purchase the 4 Hour Package right away?
A: No, you can decide at the end of your first session.
Q: How do I know how many sessions I need?
A: Many issues require only one session to teach you the tools necessary to correct the behavior. You can decide if you need additional sessions with the help of your trainer at the end of your first session.
Q: When are you available?
A: Trainers are available for in-home training afternoons, evenings and weekends.
Q: If I buy a 4 hour package but donít use all of it, can I apply the remaining credit toward a class?
A: No. Money spent on private training is non-transferable.
Q: If I have two dogs, does the rate change?
A: No, the rate will be the same.
Q: Why do you require a prepaid Booking Fee?
A: A prepaid Booking Fee helps prevent no-shows and last minute cancellations, which we have experienced before.
Q: Why do you require a larger prepayment for locations over 20 miles away?
A: Generally the travel time for these appointments can range from 45 mintues to over an hour, and take up a larger portion of the trainer's day. A no-show would result in the trainer loosing half their income for the day, and the larger prepayment ensures the trainer's time can be paid for in the event of a no-show or last minute cancellation.
