CONTINUAL TRAINING:   I feel confident that what you will learn in the Basic Training Class is so comprehensive that you will be able to build further skills on your own as your Dog develops.   However,  if there is something specific that people need to work on, I do offer PRIVATE SESSIONS.  I will also be offering SINGLE DEDICATED SKILL CLASS SESSIONS- only offered to Students who have completed the Basics.  These are wonderful ways to re-connect and build upon your Dogs growing Skills.  I also recommend the Spring/Summer/Fall Junkyard Agility Program which is Relationship based & where you can learn further tricks & skills with lots of fun attached!  If you are practicing the Life Skills presented in my Basic Training, you & your Dog should naturally be advancing & deepening your Skills.  My Basic Class is a combination of Beginner, Intermediate and most importantly, embraced by Behavioral aspects to give a complete & thorough overview of your Dog.  But often Clients simply want a private experience to increase their confidence.    My Students are always welcome to contact me with questions & concerns once they've completed my Basics.  Often a simple conversation is all that's required.  I am dedicated to you succeeding with your Dog, it's very important to me.  So I am always available to offer my support, insight and help whenever & where ever needed at any time.  Every Dog's needs are unique, so we can always discuss a solid Plan that works best for you & your Dog.

***  Please Note:  I DO NOT, under any circumstances or requests, utilize harsh and abusive devices or modalities of Training.  This includes the use of Electronic Collars; Choke Collars; or any other type of device or method rooted in an adversarial or confrontational interaction with your Dog that could influence or effect their behavior in an adverse manner.  We at Dharma Of Dog seek COOPERATION from your Dog, that which they are most willing to do, NEVER dominance or force.

***  We at Dharma Of Dog use the term POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT OR PROGRESSIVE REINFORCEMENT in the proper meaning of that term.  We do not ADD in PUNISHMENT, which is often used in other styles of Training claiming Positive Reinforcement.  This is stated for clarification and hopefully answer your questions ahead of time.  We are proud of our Programs that incorporate Behavioral Education and techniques that establish clear and fundamental Communications with your Dog.
