Services and Rates

Services and Rates

Here is the amazing part - Rates are for a private, tailored to your dog, lesson outside, not a group lesson with unruly dogs in a busy store with many distractions.

I base my training on pack leadership and dog psychology, not treat training. The dog does what you ask because you are the pack leader and to keep you happy, not for a treat. Treats are still a part of the dogs life, just not the main motivating reason for proper behavior.

Once you have booked any of my services please pay a $20.00 deposit via Interac to I have to implement this now due to people not showing up without any cancellation notice. The $20.00 will be forfeit if less than 24 hours is given for a cancellation. I am a one man operation with limited space and every booking is important to me. The deposit will be applied to your next session when proper cancellation notice is given.

Due to my very low rates tipping is appriciated but not expected.

I will lock in my rate for repeat customers for the life of your dog.

Rates for Dog Training:

Service Rate
Initial consultation and lesson: 90 minutes $60.00
60 minutes: Private Lesson $40.00
90 minutes: Private Lesson $60.00
Full Afternoon with Pack: Includes 1.5 - 2.5 hour walk $30.00
Full Day: Includes afternoon pack walk $40.00

My initial consultation and lesson will be 1.5 hours at my home. I do first consultation in the morning during the week and on the weekends. This longer visit will help me assess your dog’s needs, create communication between us, and enable me to suggest the best training environment for your dog. A well trained dog will reduce you and your dogs stress and make for a much happier pack.

There is a minimum $20.00 drive time fee for home lessons. Amount determined by drive time($40.00 hourly).

Drop Off and Pick Up Times:

Service Drop Off Pick Up
Full Afternoon with Pack: Includes 1.5 - 2.5 hour walk 11:00 - 11:45 04:00 - 06:00
Full Day: Includes afternoon pack walk 07:30 - 11:00 04:00 - 06:00

My drop off and pick up times are flexible. If you need service outside the posted times, I will try to accomadate you. Rather than a set fee per hour I have decided to rely on people's goodwill and accept tips for good service. My goal is to keep every aspect of my business stress free.

I am a firm believer in positive reinforcement. No shock or prong collars are used - no corporal punishment of any kind is ever used on my best friends. When used correctly these tools have their place, as a last resort. Too often the operator of the tool is not trained and the dog suffers unnecessarily. I witness it on a regular basis.

Rates for Dog Walking and Sitting

I only offer afternoon group walks now.If you are close enough I may be able to pick up your dog. Otherwise you drop the dog off for a full or half day.

Service Rate
Initial consultation: 30 minutes $15.00
Initial consultation: 60 minutes $30.00
Full Afternoon with Pack: Includes 1.5 - 2.5 hour walk $30.00
Full Day: Includes afternoon pack walk $40.00
Overnight: Includes afternoon pack walk $50.00

You bring the dog to my place for the initial consultation.

All the dogs in my pack walks receive free training. The newest members receive as much guidence as required to achive proper behavior. Not all dogs are created equal, so results may vary. There are always positive results.

Cage free home enviroment with a big beautiful yard, often referred to as an oasis by my customers.

All my pack members will learn to run beside a bike (solo and in a pack). The speed of the bike ride is determined by the oldest or most unfit pack member, and the temperature. There are many benifits to this method. The dog gets to travel at their natural speed, not a slow walk. The dog gets to run at their full speed to release maximum pent up energy, and much more. There are many ice and water breaks and on hot days the running is done in the shade when possible. The pack members health is closely monitored by me.

I have enough confidence in my ability to communicate with your dog that if you are not satisfied with our progress the lesson will be free. I have never heard of another trainer willing to offer this. Any dog I cannot communicate with, becomes a learning experience for me, and I am always happy to learn.
