training programs

Unfortunately, the single hour of an Initial Session is usually not enough time for us to accomplish too much with you and your SideKick; therefore, at the end of your Initial Session, I generally recommend a Training Program that fits your goals and will help us address your concerns best. Based on some common difficulties and goals, I've put together a few Training Programs that include behaviors, exercises, tools, and techniques that I've used with other folks and their SideKicks; take a peek at them below!

Note: Any Training Program can be modified and customized further - and often are. The techniques, tools, and exercises I teach and use are also flexible, depending on what may be the best fit for the dog and the people! Additionally, payment plans are available upon request.

INTRO TO TRAINING

01

Best paw forward

This NEW Training Program was designed specifically for puppies 8 weeks to 16 weeks - one of the most crucial and best times to begin training with your puppy SideKick! This Training Program includes:

  • The Best Paw Forward Booklet – a compilation of step-by-step instructions, information, tips, and ideas for putting your SideKick’s best paw forward!

  • Two (2) socialization field trips - mini sessions held outside your home (a park, a trail, etc.) to practice socialization and put skills we've learned to the test out "on the road."

  • An electronic Training Log (Microsoft Word document) to keep track of homework, practice sessions, successes and progress, areas of improvement between sessions, etc.

  • A SideKick Starter Kit, which includes a bag of training treats, a handy treat pouch, and a clicker!

  • Exclusive access to the Client Resource Center (CRC) - a collection of resources, articles, videos, links, etc. built just for my clients!

  • A "client for life" guarantee - unlimited, lifetime email support for anything that comes up before, during, and after in-person sessions.

  • As many one-hour sessions as needed (maximum of 8)

Cost: $875.00

02

Intro to Training

This program is, by far, the most popular that I offer and is mostly for dogs with no, very little, or unknown training experience! This program was designed to give you and your SideKick a solid introduction to the basics of dog manners. This Training Program includes:

  • Step-by-step instructions for each exercise and behavior we work on after each training session.

  • Handouts that include additional tips and ideas for managing and preventing behavior issues.

  • An electronic Training Log (Microsoft Word document) to keep track of homework, practice sessions, successes and progress, areas of improvement between sessions, etc.

  • Two (2) optional field trips - mini sessions held outside your home (a park, a trail, etc.).

  • A SideKick Starter Kit, which includes a bag of training treats, a handy treat pouch, and a clicker!

  • Exclusive access to the Client Resource Center (CRC) - a collection of resources, articles, videos, links, etc. built just for my clients!

  • A "client for life" guarantee - unlimited, lifetime email support for anything that comes up before, during, and after in-person sessions.

  • As many one-hour sessions as needed (maximum of 6)

Cost: $685.00

03

Leash walking skills

Dogs aren't born knowing how to walk on a leash! This Training Program focuses on teaching your SideKick that it's super great and rewarding to walk WITH you - instead of dragging you down the street! This Training Package includes:

  • Detailed instructions for each of the techniques and tools we use in our sessions and homework to accomplish before the next session.

  • An electronic Training Log (Microsoft Word document) to keep track of homework, practice sessions, successes and progress, areas of improvement between sessions, etc.

  • Two (2) optional field trips - mini sessions held outside your home (a park, a trail, etc.).

  • A SideKick Starter Kit, which includes a bag of training treats, a handy treat pouch, and a clicker!

  • Exclusive access to the Client Resource Center (CRC) - a collection of resources, articles, videos, links, etc. built just for my clients!

  • A "client for life" guarantee - unlimited, lifetime email support for anything that comes up before, during, and after in-person sessions.

  • As many one-hour sessions as needed (maximum of 5)

Cost: $595.00

04

Reactive Rover

Sometimes our SideKicks have over-the-top reactions on walks that are difficult to manage or are plain concerning. It is not impossible to work with this behavior, though! This Training Program aims to teach you and your SideKick behaviors that are alternatives to that over-reactive response (to strangers, other dogs, cars, bikes, etc.). This program includes:

  • Detailed instructions for each of the techniques and tools we use in our sessions.

  • An electronic Training Log (Microsoft Word document) to keep track of homework, practice sessions, successes and progress, areas of improvement between sessions, etc.

  • Two (2) optional field trips - mini sessions held outside your home (a park, a trail, etc.).

  • A SideKick Starter Kit, which includes a bag of training treats, a handy treat pouch, and a clicker!

  • Exclusive access to the Client Resource Center (CRC) - a collection of resources, articles, videos, links, etc. built just for my clients!

  • A "client for life" guarantee - unlimited, lifetime email support for anything that comes up before, during, and after in-person sessions.

  • As many one-hour sessions as needed (maximum of 8)

Cost: $875.00

05

custom training program

If one of the above Training Programs doesn't fit your needs or your SideKick's needs, we can build a Custom Training Program together. A Custom Training Program is exactly that: custom! We are able to pick and choose any behaviors, exercises, or cues you'd like to learn or work on! The cost of the Training Program is, then, dependent on those goals and/or concerns. All Custom Training Programs, regardless of what exercises and behaviors we learn, include the following:

  • An electronic Training Log (Microsoft Word document) to keep track of homework, practice sessions, successes and progress, areas of improvement between sessions, etc.

  • A SideKick Starter Kit, which includes a bag of training treats, a handy treat pouch, and a clicker!

  • Exclusive access to the Client Resource Center (CRC) - a collection of resources, articles, videos, links, etc. built just for my clients!

  • A "client for life" guarantee - unlimited, lifetime email support for anything that comes up before, during, and after in-person sessions.
