Mission and Services
The Mission of Creating Momentum Canine Coaching: I educate and coach you about dog behavior and learning theory in layman's terms. We build a training plan and work through it in as few sessions as necessary. Through the use of a least intrusive, minimally aversive positive approach, you will learn how to continue to teach your pet basic obedience, life skills, fun tricks, and/or manage unwanted behaviors.
The First Step: Consultation
1. Request your consult by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. You will complete an intake form and schedule a Zoom appointment.
Initial Consultation: $75. Includes: Intake review + 45 minute zoom consultation + written summary of personalized recommendations for the future and/or referrals to other resources/services if necessary + one week of email access for coaching guidance and advice. (Expect 24 hour response time or less to email Monday through Friday only.)
If I discover your pet's issue is outside of the scope of my current skillset, I will provide you with resources, services, or refer you to other highly qualified professionals. I want you and your dog to succeed even if not from working with me.
2. Online Remote Behavior Training/Coaching Sessions with email support: Each session consists of a 45-minute Zoom session. Education and guidance about animal behavior and learning theory is provided. I answer your questions. I walk you through the training plan. I summarized by email the key points from our session. Together, we will create a clear, specific, realistic training plan that you will implement with my guidance and support. For upto 1 week after our last session, you will have unlimited access to my coaching guidance via email. (Expect 24 hour response time or less to email Monday through Friday only). Through the use of videos, we work together to shape the behavior of your pet through positive, kind, and compassionate methods. $60 per session.
Online Remote Training Packages:
(a) Access to one scheduled zoom sessions per month with additional zoom sessions scheduled as needed based upon scheduling availability. You are encouraged to schedule more than one per month when needed.
(b) Unlimited accesss to email coaching guidance and advice throughout the duration of time purchased. (Expect 24 hour response time or less to email Monday through Friday only.) I want you to share you progress and ask me questions as you work through your training plans. This includes my review of videos that you send me of your training efforts.
(c) Packages are to be paid in full and are non-refundable. This policy aims to motivate you to make your committment to training your dog a priority, to encourage you to communicate with me often, and to allow you the chance to get a greater value for your dollar. Dogs learn best when trained using a high rate of reward in a short time. A few weeks or months of consistent repetitive training with support and coaching could save you and your dog a lifetime of struggle.
4 week package = $200
