Q. Where do you train?
We primarily conduct lessons at local parks in Port St Lucie, and surrounding areas. With convenience in mind, we also offer In-Home training so we can work with your dog in or around your home! We book daytime, evening, and weekend lessons. We try our best to accommodate schedules to make things easy for our clients. We believe in real world, unpredictable distractions and work under those distractions so that your dog learns to listen under any condition.
Q. What is an ecollar?
Modern day e-collars use the same technology that you’ll find in TENS machines that are used in physical therapy or chiropractic offices. Our training methods use low level stimulation which mimics that of a “tap on the shoulder” for dogs, and our results speak for themselves. Our ultimate goal is for your dog to be flawlessly obedient without stimulation from the ecollar, with distractions, and we work with you and your dog to make that possible. The ecollar ends up being like an invisible leash.
Q. Will an ecollar hurt my dog or affect their personality?
No. The ecollar will not hurt your dog or affect their personality. The ecollar is simply used as a training tool in order to communicate with your dog. There is a common misconception regarding ecollars; they are often mistaken for “shock collars”. In the old days, inexperienced dog owners would try and use these devices in order to scare their dogs into submission. Utilizing our proven method combining positive reinforcement marker training along with an ecollar, your dog will NEVER be “shocked into submission”. Unlike a shocking device, the e-collar is used to get the dog’s attention and keep it focused on listening to the handler.
Q. What sets your training apart from the rest?
1. An off leash future for you and your dog with more freedom to enjoy life. Our goal is for every dog to know what it’s like to have the freedom of being a dog. We want every owner to experience the confidence, joy, and pride of having a dog that is reliable, and consistently well behaved under any level of distraction.
2. Hope for EVERY dog… ANY BREED, ANY AGE, and ANY SIZE. We don’t discriminate, and … German Shepherds, Dobermans, and Pitbulls are a few of our favorite breeds. Have an aggressive dog that no one else could help you with? Have a shy dog that bites out of fear? Have a reactive dog that can’t walk down a street by another dog without going crazy? Have a hyperactive dog that can’t seem to focus on anything? Been kicked out of other obedience classes? Been told your dog is not trainable? Well, we can help! THAT is the difference. WE ARE THE LAST TRAINERS YOU WILL NEED. Dogs are never too old, fat, slow, or hyper to learn using our methods. Aggressive and dogs with confidence issues are our specialty. Call us! We CAN help.
Q. Do you offer group classes?
No, we do not and we never will. I have never seen a dog impress me with obedience that came from a group class. You are paying for my undivided attention… not for 10 minutes of my time while I spend the 50 minutes working with 9 other people in a class. One on one attention is one of the reasons we are able to accomplish so much in just a few short weeks.
Q. How do I book an appointment?
In order to book lessons, first you must pay for the desired Training Package in full. Once paid, just call or email us to schedule dates/times that fit your needs! Most of our clients pay via PayPal or with a credit card; however, we also accept cash or checks.
