Hello! My name is Joe ( Instagram/Facebook: @DogTrainerJoe ) and I am an American Kennel Club (AKC) certified professional dog trainer. Positive dog training is my passion and nothing gives me greater satisfaction than helping pet-parents and their beloved dogs to build powerful bonds through successful training.
HOW IT WORKS:
All private lessons are provided live online via Zoom (or Skype). Each class is fifty minutes. I can help you to train a puppy or dog of any age or training level. During each class, I will explain training techniques and demonstrate them with my own dog, and then I coach you along as you practice with your pup. It's hands-on learning and it's very effective. It's also lots of fun! After each class, to help you practice at home, I will email you a home practice sheet pertaining to that day's lessons. All active clients are also welcome to correspond with me via email at anytime so I can help you out with any questions along the way.
WHAT YOU'LL LEARN:
I am an AKC Certified Positive Reinforcement Dog Trainer, which means that I teach the most humane and SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN method of dog training. It is the type of training developed by the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists and supported by the Association of Professional Dog Trainers (APDT) as well as the American Kennel Club (AKC). In short, this is the most effective form of training because it is the most humane. No aversive techniques (shouting, intimidating, etc) and no aversive tools (shock collars, choke chains, etc) are used. This humane and rewards based training philosophy creates the most trust and best possible relationship with your dog, which in turn makes your dog eager to listen to you and perform!
We can eliminate unwanted behaviors (chewing, nipping, barking, etc) and teach desirable behaviors (sit, stay, come, heel, etc). We can also teach fun games and tricks! That said, ingraining reliable responses to functional cues (commands) is my specialty. We will plan each lesson according to your dog's specific needs.
I am currently charging just $60 per 50-minute session, and $145 for a 3-session package. Online training is done via Skype or Zoom and is available to anyone with access to a good internet connection and ability to pay by PayPal, Zoom, or Venmo. Our initial video-chat meeting to discuss your dog's training goals and answer your questions is free of charge and there is no obligation.
To ask questions or set up a free "meet-n-greet" on Zoom, please reply here and I will respond soon. It will be my pleasure meet you and your best friend!
