I always begin with an initial consultation . This is a no-obligations 1 1/2 hour session at a discounted rate. I do this so you may meet me and see results before we start working together. Because of the myriad of dog training styles available, plus nearly half of my new clients come from previously unsuccessful dog training, I want to make sure you see how I am different and can help before hiring me. Our initial consultation of course also gives me the opportunity to evaluate your dog and coordinate the right training program for his/her training and behavior needs.
The cost and length of dog training can vary, with noticeable improvements the very first session! Please call for a free telephone consultation or to schedule a discounted initial session with Brett Endes
The earlier the better! Good habits can be taught from day one. By creating a solid foundation and some basic life-skills from the start, you will ensure an optimal relationship between you and your pet that is problem free. Brett also offers pre-purchase and pre-adoption services to help ensure a good match between you and your new family member.
I work with dogs of any age, breed, or temperament. As long as the owner can be trained… any dog can be trained, too!
Once I teach owners to understand/communicate with their dogs in a natural way and provide a structured life that accommodates their individual needs, I have rarely seen a dog that requires medication. When I begin working with a “medicated” dog, I usually will ask the owner to discontinue giving it to them. This allows the dog to see reality from an unclouded and pure perspective so we may communicate with them effectively.
Quite the contrary! Most dogs who display behavioral issues (even extreme ones) are doing so because they are very intelligent and highly sensitive and are simply not getting the appropriate outlets for their mental/physical energy or the structured life they require.
Yes. Like dog aggression, separation anxiety is often misunderstood. I have found in most cases, medications are not necessary to help with this debilitating problem many dogs experience once the root cause is addressed.
Absolutely! Even though dog aggression is a serious issue, it is unfortunately misunderstood by too many dog trainers. You will be amazed by how quickly most dogs get over their insecurities once a proper relationship and structured lifestyle is established between dog and owner.
Yes. Brett specializes in dogs who have worked, at times extensively with other trainers and behavior specialists. In most cases, these individuals see a noticeable improvement in the first lesson, despite what results previous “experts” have shown or said about their dog in the past.
All of them! Regardless of age, breed, or temperament.
I don't have one! I have learned how dogs, as a separate and complex species, naturally communicate on their own and how to teach this concept to humans. In reality, dogs have been around much longer than I have…. Who am I to reinvent the wheel, right? Once we learn to understand our dog’s reality (and not the one we project onto them) a dog will instantly sense this and respond accordingly.
I’ve researched all over the internet and have found that dog trainers vary widely in their philosophies.… Why?
Because we as humans all come from different backgrounds, cultures, and points of view, it only makes sense to certain people that dogs approach life from the same perspective as they do. There are many trainers who use this line of thinking when approaching dogs and their behaviors. This leads them to have some sort of (usually prefaced by positive) “philosophy” or “method” they invented. This actually makes complete sense to our human thought processes. (Even I wish dogs thought exactly like we did!) This can be misleading to what our dogs truly need, though, and is the primary reason why so many dog owners have to see me after working with other dog trainers. Dogs are dogs and exist in a completely different world than we do. This requires a more involved approach based on energy, instinct, and communication. Not just treats or unnecessary force.
