“POTENTIAL” – THE SUPREME PROGRAM

Are you wishing for a relaxed, rewarding relationship with your dog where having houseguests, going out on walks, or just general life around the house is fun and stress-free? But do you just not have the time? This program is for you!

Our walk-and-train program will give your dog all of the skills they need to accomplish your goals, without you needing to do any of the initial training and hard work. Bronagh will work privately with your dog for the first 8 sessions and solidify all of the skills your dog needs, then will easily transfer those skills over to you in the remaining group sessions.

Programs cover everything from basic manners and obedience behaviors, recalls, place, loose leash walking, appropriate greetings, focus in the face of distractions, behaviors for vet visits, collar grabs, and many other behaviors tailored directly to your dog. (Note: aggression and anxiety cases are generally better suited to our other programs.)

The program includes:

  • 90-minute consult with your family, discussing training goals and current undesirable behaviors as well as several strategies that you can implement right away for immediate results. We will form a training plan, as well as discussing ways to further increase your dog’s emotional and physical welfare.

  • 8 walk-and-train sessions—2 times per week, one-on-one with Bronagh (generally in or around your home)

  • 4 in-home training sessions (with you and your family)

  • 2 field trip lessons

  • A training plan specifically tailored to your dog’s individual needs.

  • Bronagh will be available to support you through the entire program via email and phone along with the in-person lessons and walk-and-train lessons.
