dog is unique. Every dog owner's goals are different. Why attend a
generalized, cookie cutter class to get the best training for your dog?
classes with a dog trainer typically have a set curriculum: It doesn't
matter if your dog already knows sit and down...you're going to go
through it with everyone else as they learn it. If your dog is
fearful... it doesn't get the most out of class because the focus is not
on shy/fearful issues.... it's on "stay" and not jumping. You attend
puppy class for socialization... but there are only other puppies
there... what about exposure to all kinds of dogs- young and old? If
your dog doesn't have any training, it can be intimidating signing up
for weeks of class without knowing if the training is what you expect.
After years of doing all kinds of group classes, Crystal has found a solution:
still get together with other dogs and their owners to work on
training. The difference is: You work on what you want to work on.
You come to the class dates that fit your schedule, and if you skip a
week it's no big deal. You get the personalized attention and friendly
instruction that is sometimes compromised in a group class situation,
and you get the socialization and convenience of an hour class. You
also get a customized training plan. It's like having your cake and
eating it too!
