Here are some of our most commonly asked questions: 

Why can't I buy some of the services on your site?

This allows you to make sure that you have a chance to meet us and learn about us through a 15 minute free screening before you buy. Buying Training packages is like buying an experience, you want to be able to ask questions and make sure that you're in the best possible service for you and your pet. 

What is the difference between a Dog Trainer, Canine Behavior Consultant, and a Veterinary Behaviorist?

Here is a brief rundown of the differences and overlapping skills sets of these three specialized skill sets.

Dog Trainer:

  • Teaches basic obedience
  • Can help with socializing 
  • Teaching tricks
  • Teaching dog sports like agility or flyball
  • Teaching dogs jobs like rescue, detection, or retrieving
  • Teaching service or therapy dogs
  • Working on unruly behaviors like jumping, barking, or pulling on walks
  • Partner with Canine Behavior Consultants in implementation of Training plans. 

Canine Behavior Consultants:

  • Work with unusual or abnormally intense behaviors like obsessive barking, fence fighting, or resource guarding
  • Work on injurious behaviors like biting
  • Help with problems relating to fear or anxiety
  • Often works in partnership with a veterinary behaviorist.  Think of this like the difference between a psychologist and a psychiatrist who work together to help solve problematic behaviors and ways of thinking.

Veterinary Behaviorist

  • Help with behaviors not typical to dogs including extreme aggression
  • Help with behaviors that are typical but are performed to an extreme degree or extreme frequency
  • Help with injurious behaviors like biting
  • Can diagnose and treat underlying medical issues which may be causing or worsening undesirable behavior
  • Can diagnose and treat underlying emotional disorders
  • Collaborates with both Canine Behavior Consultants and Dog Trainers on cases. 

Where are your services held? 

Our services are currently run either In Person at your home or Virtually with one of our Trainers or Behavior Consultants. Depending on the case, we may also set up a session at a local park or trail too. 

What is your service range? 

We serve the Greater Sacramento area. We service: Citrus Heights, Orangevale, Roseville, Fair Oaks, Folsom, Carmichael, Rocklin, Sacramento, Lincoln, and more. We have a 30 minute drive time per our service area. If you live outside that service area we charge a service fee for drive time.

What is the service fee? 

For every 10 minutes extra of a drive (there and back) that our trainers have to go, we’ll charge $20. This covers the wear and tear on those vehicles, labor for that trainer, and covers the possible loss of availability for other clients. 

What kind of Services do you offer? 

At this time we provide Private Training, Day Training and other services. For a full look at our Services, check out our Services page and the link there to our Pricing and Service Sheet. 

Do you offer Group Classes?
