Looking to secure a spot in our group classes? Just follow the link to register for a free orientation! You’ll hear more about how we train and why we train the way we train, as well as what to expect from the curriculum.
(You can also get this information by clicking on the blue text on the group class sign-up page.)
In person, you’ll also get to see one of our recent graduates so you can see the kind of dog our clients are able to train. You’ll even get homework to take home and begin right away that provides a foundation for ALL dogs to learn to pay attention to you around their most problematic distractions.
We try to provide as much detail about our training and curriculum as we can on the site, but if there’s any information we haven’t covered, you may be interested in our specialty training.
Still have questions? Here’s the deal: I really, really wish I had the man-hours to respond to everyone.
The reality is that even between myself, my trainers, and receptionists, there are just too many inquiries to be returned. *Some* are just not going to be gotten to in a timely fashion and some aren’t at all.
What I can tell you is that we (all of us as members of the Rosie Dane Dog Training team) try really hard to be responsive. Current clients get priority and we likely have hundreds of those right now.
Transparently, I want you to know that each of us budgets multiple hours a day to respond to communications (email, text, and phone). Phone calls historically take 15 minutes per. Emails 7.5. At least 75% of our correspondence time inevitably goes to existing clients. The rest goes to benefit the greatest number of folks we can help. Fortunately, it does turn out that we get to the vast majority of inquiries received, but it is never going to be all. I wish it was. But we also work directly with clients and dogs for, on average, 8-10 hours/day. We have families and our own personal dogs, too! If you can tell me how to make more time, I’ll train your dog for free 🙂
What I can guarantee is that we are incredibly good at our jobs. It’s why you’ve heard of us. It’s why you’re reading this! We’ve personally supervised the training of over 7,000 dogs and have yet to meet a case we couldn’t help. Some people can’t be trained, but that’s the only reason dogs aren’t able to achieve what they’re capable of.
All to say, if you’re on the fence and NEED help, I urge you to just book a private lesson. It’s $80, you will be listened to, you will be understood, you WILL get help and it WILL work (if you do what we tell you). There are no commitments or packages that you’re going to be pressure-sold on and we are fully invested in your success. It’d be rare that you don’t like us, but we won’t hold it against you if you don’t. What do you have to lose? $80 and maybe two hours of your time if you’re across town. An hour if you’re close. We’re a really good gamble.
Please note that queries such as “interested in training”, “tell me more”, or “call me back” HARDLY EVER RECEIVE RETURN CORRESPONDENCE, whether that message is delivered by telephone or email. Plenty of information is available regarding our programs, start dates, and prices on the website you’re currently on. Please click around.
Specific and detailed inquiries, giving us background on your situation and why you’re reaching out, will be returned as fast and efficiently as we can.
Our driving mission has always been to help the most dogs keep their homes, and help the most homes keep their dogs, as possible. Everything we do operationally stems from this guiding principle. We thank you for understanding.
