Every class is taught with a two-part approach, because it takes both the pet parent and the pet to be successful. Pet parents learn the skills they need to provide the best learning experience for their pets, while pets learn how to navigate the human world.
Pets are encouraged to learn using positive reinforcement – they “work” for treats. We follow the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers‘ LIMA behavior policy. LIMA stands for Least Intrusive, Minimally Aversive. This means that your pets will be taught using humane methods using the most current research. We do not believe in or encourage punishment or force when training and interacting with your pet. For more information on LIMA, please visit CCPDT here.
If you have questions regarding our services, please email our trainer Amanda ([email protected]). If you are experiencing an emergency, please seek a veterinary emergency clinic in your area.
We offer in-home consultations so that you can meet our trainer, Amanda, and she can assess your pet’s behavior. At the end of the Consultation, you’ll get valuable information on which services suit you best, and a plan for how to help your pet.
You can choose from a block of 6 lessons or purchase single lessons, depending on your needs. These lessons are tailored to meet the needs of both you and your pet.
Our group lessons take place at Ken-Ton Animal Clinic, on the Small Animal side. If you and friends or family would like to get together and host a group class, we will gladly travel to you!
Our group classes focus on socialization, life stages (adolescence, adulthood), and on the challenges and joys of each!
