Six years ago when I adopted Shayne and brought her home, I expected to deal with the food aggression issues since those were advertised with her but I never expected the other behavioral problems we encountered. At the time I was working 2 jobs to squeak by and a private trainer was out of my reach. I was doing my best learning, researching, and talking with behavior expert pals to work with her unexpected issues but I would have loved to have been able to work one on one with a behavior expert. When I got Shayne, I was quite experienced training basic manners and tricks, but hadn’t ventured into the world of behavior and it was quite the effort.
There are many people who have dogs with some behavioral problems (or just manners issues) who do not have the spare funds to spend on hiring a trainer–perhaps you know a few people who fit this description. As the holidays approach, maybe you are even trying to find the right gift for someone in your life who has a dog with some special features. Instead of deciding between a brand new Furby or an iPad mini, maybe you could consider finding a local trainer in their area and buying them a gift certificate for either a partial lesson, or a full package or something in between.
That one little gift certificate can really change a life–well, actually, many lives. It is far superior to a furby–though I am pretty biased.
Success Just Clicks offers gift certificates good for private training lessons (if the training in question is for serious behavior modification, please discuss with us prior to purchase). If you have any questions about our gift certificates, please contact us!
