What happens if I don’t get the results I want from the training? Is there a guarantee?
Due to the many variables involved to create a well-behaved, balanced dog, including owner commitment, consistency, and follow-through, it would be unethical for us to offer a 100% guarantee. However, we only choose the most dedicated and diligent owners so, in our experience, no matter how severe the issues, we consistently see breakthrough results and amazing transformations. We have never come across a dog we could not help. We work hand in hand as a team in your dog’s behavior modification process. This process of teamwork and collaboration begins before we even meet your dog, moves through the training process, and continues long after your dog has gone home. Once you hire us, we consider you part of Precision K9 Training family, and your success is our utmost priority.
Will I get to see my dog during the Board and Train?
Bob will determine if owner participation is appropriate or helpful to the program. In most cases, however, we find owner participation counterproductive to the modification and training process.
Why do you use prong collars?
We use prong collars because we find them to be the best tool for connecting, communicating, and creating a harmonious relationship with the least amount of physical stress to the dog and owner. Most tools tend to only mask or manage the behavior, while the prong collar allows us to actually break through and effortlessly communicate, creating a vastly different state of mind and a highly responsive dog. While prong collars tend to look horrible, when used correctly, they have been proven to be the least physically taxing, most humane, and one of the safest tools available.
Why do you use E-Collars?
Modern e-collar training is the most effective, most reliable, most humane, and transformational training available today.
How do you train with an E-Collar?
We use low-level, communication-style, modern e-collar training, which looks nothing like the e-collar training of the past.
My dog is fearful and nervous – I shouldn’t use an E-Collar with him, right…?
Actually, modern e-collar training is the best training for dogs with these types of issues. Our e-collar training system is designed to create more confident, relaxed, and comfortable dogs.
Do you work with aggressive dogs?
Yes. We pride ourselves with the ability to train any dog, regardless of behaviors and issues. Safety is our number one concern with all dogs, especially when there is any aggression.
My dog is uncontrollable on the walk – pulling, lunging, barking, growling – can you fix this?
We consistently get fantastic results with all levels of issues, from mild pulling and disobedience, to severe dog reactivity.
Is my dog too old to be trained?
No, it doesn’t matter what breed, sex, or age your dog is, we have a program that will work for him/her.
Will this training change my dog’s personality?
No, Precision K9 Training will enhance your dog’s personality and bring out a more confident and well-rounded dog.
Will my dog remember me after he/she takes part in your training programs?
Yes! Your dog will be very excited to see you at the end of his/her stay with us.
I have tried other trainers before and didn’t get the results I desired – what makes your program and approach different and more effective?
We are often the last stop after clients have been through multiple trainers. Unlike other training approaches that only focus on developing rehearsed behaviors, bribing with treats, or merely managing/bandaid-ing the problem, we have developed a unique approach that fundamentally changes the dog’s state of mind. Once we address the dog’s state of mind, the sky’s the limit for what we can create. By cultivating new habits, teaching the dog to make better choices, training calmness instead of excitability, and employing our unique duration work, we are consistently successful with dogs that others are unable to help. This will be the last dog training you will ever need.
I can’t afford your programs, but I’m in a bad situation with my dog – what can I do?
In special cases, we can sometimes arrange a payment plan – please contact us for details.
