Video-Chat Training SessionsWe will be helping existing clients and accepting new clients through the duration of Michigan's Stay At Home order via video-chat sessions. All sessions include emailed homework and ongoing phone, text or email support. We will first discuss your needs briefly by phone or email to plan for and schedule your session. Sessions can be held via Zoom, Skype, Apple FaceTime, Facebook Messenger or Google Hangouts, and payments can accepted with PayPal or Square prior to your session. Contact us for scheduling one of the sessions below. Puppy Jumpstart: 2-hour in-home session now available as a video-chat session. For puppies 2-5 months old to go over the basics of puppy raising and introduce early training techniques. The tuition for this session is then applied towards the continuation of an in-home program when your puppy is at least 6 months old. ($90) Evaluation for in-home program: 1-hour video-chat to get a better assessment of your dog in their environment, training and behavior issues, go over our program in detail and answer questions. The evaluation fee is waived if you sign up for an in-home training program to begin at a later date, and either pay in full, or maintain weekly per-session payments. We will continue to coach you with free weekly half-hour phone or video-chat check-ins until we are able to schedule your in-home sessions. ($60) A la carte sessions: For new or past clients to get coaching and advice on common training and behavior issues. ($30/half-hour, $60/1-hour, $90/2-hours)
