At the pawsitive dog, we feel that what we do before your dog's training starts is almost as important as the
training itself. That's why we schedule a personalized, pre-enrollment consultation for you & your dog right away and invite you to get a sneak peek and observe a class while you wait.
Our free, no-obligation, one-on-one consult allows you (and your dog, of course!) the opportunity to begin
your training journey at no pressure, no cost. Lots goes on during this 45-minute scheduled appointment … you'll see where + dog canine stars are born, meet
with us, have all your questions answered, become familiar with our philosophies and methods and discuss both your immediate needs as well as your long-term goals as a unique team. The consultation
also gives professional + dog faculty trainers a
chance to evaluate each dog, your unique situation, and help you focus on achievable goals… goals that realistically complement your dog's lifelong potential.
Based on the information learned during the consultation from both human and canine, together, we develop a
start-up strategy before enrolling you and your dog in an appropriate program or customized combination of programs that best meets your needs. Rate of speed, comfort level and class schedule are all determined by
your learning style, lifestyle and your dog's progress as well as the desired outcome. Start-up strategies are
assessed and re-assessed constantly so we may make additions or subtractions based on the progress of your team and the changes in your life.
Due to + dog's high retention rate and constant demand, as well as our interest in maintaining a personalized
training facility dedicated to dedicated dog owners, there is frequently a 2 -3 month wait for consultation appointments. We encourage all prospective students who are in need of immediate assistance to consider
jump starting their + dog experience by either enrolling in one of several creative options:
Because of minimal availability, we require a nominal deposit of $99 when scheduling the consultation
appointment and 48-hour notice of any cancellation. This fee can be directly applied to your training or can be
automatically reimbursed after the consultation if training is not right for you at this time. Should you forget your
appointment altogether or provide us with less than 48-hour notice of cancellation/rescheduling, we regret that your $99 deposit cannot be reimbursed.
Looking for exact class schedules and tuition? We'd love to answer that crucial question. Because each canine &
human partnership is unique, almost every client enrolls in something slightly different. Our pre-enrollment
consultation is the chance to review schedules and pricing structures that are appropriate for you and your dog.
We look forward to speaking with you over the phone, meeting you in person and doing what we do best ---
working together to help you and your dog develop an enjoyable lifelong partnership. See how the pawsitive dog
can be part of your networking team and give you all the training results you've been searching for!
Here's what one successful + dog client had to say about her consultation…
"We brought our six month old French Bulldog for an evaluation at The Pawsitive Dog
shortly after bringing him home, at the recommendation of several of our neighbors. While my fiancÚ grew up having dogs as pets, I was rather terrified of them (now you know whose idea it was to get a dog in the first place). I will be the very first to admit that I had no idea what to expect, both as a dog owner and in training classes.
"Jenifer and Breslin put us all at ease nearly immediately. Both have taken the time to get to know us, to evaluate and
form a bond with Clark, and to really understand our unique dynamic. It's rather possible that Jenifer trained me even more effectively than she trained Clark."
