Be Kind to Dogs dog training is pleased to offer in-home training. I not only offer dog training in Chandler but also in the surrounding areas including Ahwatukee, Gilbert, Johnson Ranch, Mesa, Queen Creek, San Tan Valley, South Scottsdale and Tempe.  

Firstly, experience has taught me that the best way to start is for us to have a free, no obligation, chat on the phone. 
At this point you will have the opportunity to tell me about your dog, explain what help you’re looking for and ask any questions you might have. At the same time I can obtain background information and explain my methods, pricing and scheduling. 
Please note: If I do not cover your area please contact me anyway so I can refer you to another APPROPRIATELY QUALIFIED Force Free Trainer! I have worked very hard to locate the other trainers who subscribe to the same high ethics and standards as I do and I am happy to refer you to them. 

If you decide to proceed, we can schedule my first visit. I will also, whenever possible, immediately provide you with any verbal or written tips to help alleviate any problems you are dealing with until I can get to see you. I will visit your home by appointment (this can be on a weekday, weekday-evening or weekend) and have an in-depth discussion with you regarding your dog and any areas of concern you have and we get started straight away! 

Once you have paid your fees you will be entitled to join the “Secret” Facebook Group for clients. I have written numerous handouts covering a diverse range of subjects all of which will be available to you. I often write new handouts and update the existing ones as well as posting helpful tips and news in the Group.

 You will also benefit from free email follow-up throughout the program and afterwards. I am always happy to answer clients’ questions at any time – many clients contact me even years later when their circumstances change, e.g. they are adding a new dog to the family and want help introducing him, or they are starting a family and want to make sure their dogs are happy with the new baby in the home, etc

The first session will last for 2 hours and it is best if all major caregivers, including the children, can be present to ensure the whole household is on the same page with the training. We will immediately start addressing your areas of concern. In most but the very simplest of cases, there is a 6 session minimum. Subsequent sessions will last 1 hour.

​The Reactive/Aggression cases are a 6 week program and can have additional 1 hour sessions by arrangement on an as-needed basis.
