Training Options:

Owner Focused Consultation:

Our consultation is not how other trainers use them.

Duration: 90-Minutes

Owner Focused Consultation: 90 minutes (Required) before follow-up sessions can be booked

Owner Focused Consult: Our single consultation is designed to assess your relationship dynamics and enhance communication with your canine companion. In this individualized training, we collaborate closely with both you and your dog, working together to identify and address points of miscommunication.

We will conduct a thorough assessment to pinpoint areas of concern, acting as skilled "exterminators" to eliminate any "termites" that may have infested your training approach. Our primary aim is to guide you effectively, providing insights and strategies to get you back on track.

Together, you and your dog will learn how to engage in a supportive learning environment, fostering a consistent training approach and strengthening the bond between you. It's not uncommon to discover that there's more to the puzzle than initially realized and are here to help you navigate and fill in those missing pieces.

Our consultation is the first step for dogs dealing with behavioral challenges and having a difficult time adapting to our environment. This initial session sets the foundation for a personalized training plan, specifically tailored to address your dog's unique needs and align with your training goals. Here we will address your dog's needs, their genetic components, their history of learning, assessing enrichment within their environment among many other things.

At this stage, our commitment is to provide you with specialized guidance that leverages valuable expertise. We understand the challenges that come with reactive and aggressive behaviors, among basic raw behavior, and our commitment is helping you navigate and overcome them.

It's important to note that our approach extends beyond working solely with your dog; our goal is to educate you, adjusting the lens through which we perceive our canine counterparts.

It's important to recognize that the training journey may reveal more complexities than initially anticipated. What may seem like a straightforward concern could be part of a broader puzzle. While a single consult is a valuable starting point, it often serves as a doorway to the recognition that a more comprehensive guided training plan may be beneficial. Consider selecting one of our packaged options if you feel like you might fall under this scope. Think of it as an opportunity to bring all the puzzle pieces to the table, allowing us to learn how to peer through the lens of L.E.G.S creating a comprehensive training plan that aligns with your goals and your dog's unique needs.

Our consultation is beneficial for clients that may just need a nudge and push in the right direction but if your dog is struggling with basic leash pulling or you are wanting to begin building a foundation in cues consider looking at our Pathway Manners service.

The Owner Focused Consultation is not merely a starting point; it's a pivotal opportunity for us to comprehensively understand your dog's behavior and collaboratively develop a training plan that ensures a positive and lasting transformation. Our ultimate focus is to teach you the nuts and bolts behind the training, empowering you to press forward with confidence on your training journey.
