Thank you for joining us!
Below you will find useful information about our lessons, how to contact me, etc. If you have any questions, please let me know.
If we haven’t already met, I will ask you to complete an Intake Form for your dog. This gives me a picture of your dog’s day to day life. After receiving your form and receving payment, I will likely send you suggestions for homework so you can get started right away, while we wait for our lesson. If you have not completed one yet, please click here to access it.
I will email you asking to set up lesson dates. If you have purchased a package, I like to have you penciled in for regular weekly or bi-weekly lessons. If you have a serious problem or are overwhelmed, we may meet more often initially and less often as we progress. Your lesson times are flexible. You can postpone one at any time, and we can change up when and where we meet. You aren’t locked into the times and location we initially set.
- After each lesson, you will receive an emailed summary from me.
- Lessons are approximately 60 minutes long.
- Providing your pooch is comfortable with me handling them, you can choose to have me pick up your dog for a lesson on my own, or you can drop them off with me for an hour while you go have coffee.
Email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or text me (250-616-0306) any time. I will do my best to reply within 24 hours. You can phone as well, but my phone is usually on silent mode as I don’t like it interrupting lessons.
Marco Polo is a great free app that you can install on your phone or tablet. Add me using my phone number 250-616-0306. If you have a lesson package, you can use Marco Polo to send me videos for feedback any time. I will do my best to respond within 24 hours, also by video.
Please keep in mind that I try to take Sundays and Mondays off.
