Dog Training Q&A
I am currently studying and working towards my CPDT certification and will answer all your questions about dog training! The industry is unregulated and I recognize that you can find a lot of bad advice online. If I don't know the answer or am not comfortable with the direction a discussion is taking, I WILL refer you to someone who can help you. Otherwise, I can answer most questions on basic obedience, training, behaviour problems at home, and problem behaviours. I am an open book and NON judgmental-feel free to ask ANY question about a behaviour your dog has, even if you find it embarrassing! We're all working towards the same goal-a harmonious family life for you and your pet.
The Q&A will be performed by question-if you have multiple questions, I highly recommend my full session so you can get the most out of it! I will spend 15 minutes answering and making sure that you understand what your next steps are.
Once I've accepted your proposal, send me a quick background on your dog (age, breed, a short description of what the problem is and when it started) and what questions you may have specifically. I'll set you up with a quick training plan! Let me know how it goes once you start it and I will answer related follow-up questions. This is not an in-person session, and will be executed on Simbi using the messaging system.
If you want more help after some practice with the plan, we can do a follow up once you've practiced as a new session related to the same topic. I can still help you out if it's not going as smoothly as your initial practice anticipated!
Training & Qualifications
Currently in courses doing hands-on learning towards my CPDT certification. I am NOT yet certified but have spent a LOT of time dedicated to learning about dog training, behaviour, and behaviour modification, so I am very likely able to help you out or refer you to the resource that will be most effective!
Availability & Preferences
I'm usually available on evenings (not Monday or Friday) and weekends (varies time of day).
