"But just because a person goes to Harvard doesn't mean he's balanced when he graduates, and just because a dog knows how to obey doesn't mean he's balanced, either."


--Cesar Millan

Our Services

If our list of services does not include what you are looking for, do not hesitate to contact us to discuss creating a program that suits your specific needs. If we can do it, we will. If we cannot, we will recommend other trainer options.

BASIC OBEDIENCE

Basic obedience is the most common program that dog owners are seeking. With this program owners learn how to train their dogs to achieve basic manners in the home and leash manners on walks and out in public. In general, we will focus on:

Setting boundaries
Sit/Stay
Down/Stay
Wait
Leave It
Short distance/low distraction Recall (come when called)
Leash Manners

IN-HOME SESSIONS:

4 weekly 1-hour sessions in the home = $480.00

6 weekly 1-hour sessions in the home = $660.00

1 session at a time (1-hour), pay-as-you-go = $150/session

If our commute exceeds 45 min one-way, we will charge an additional $30/session. (Our address is 112 Sea Oats Drive, Emerald Isle if you want to GPS to confirm drive time)

DAY CAMP:

5-Day Camp, Mon – Fri, 10am to 4pm = $650.00

10-Day Camp, Mon – Fri (weekends off), 10am to 4pm = $1,250.00

Mo often flexes exact times of day camp to accommodate work/school schedules of clients.


ADVANCED OBEDIENCE

Advanced obedience includes Basic Obedience, but extends your dog’s compliance and response to make her/him “on point”, meaning a quicker response and the ability to hold commands longer with more confidence. Advanced Obedience also adds off-leash recall. PLACE command and remote collar training.

Advanced obedience requires the owner to purchase a remote collar (electrostatic signal, not a shock), which costs about $200.00, in addition to training fees. Mo is always happy to show the collar and demonstrate its signal for you before you commit to Advanced obedience.

IN-HOME SESSIONS:

6 weekly 1-hour sessions in the home = $720.00

8 weekly 1-hour sessions in the home = $880.00

1 session at a time (1-hour), pay-as-you-go = $150/session

If our commute exceeds 45 min one-way, we will charge an additional $30/session. (Our address is 112 Sea Oats Drive, Emerald Isle if you want to GPS to confirm drive time)

DAY CAMP:

10-Day Camp, Mon – Fri, 10am to 4pm = $1350.00

15-Day Camp, Mon – Fri (weekends off), 10am to 4pm = $1950.00

Mo often flexes exact times of day camp to accommodate work/school schedules of clients.


BEHAVIOR REHABILITATION

Behavior rehabilitation is a very individual process. The needs of the dog and the capacity of the owner to address more serious behavior concerns will be factored into a game plan for rehabilitation.

Mo will take cases that include aggression toward dogs, aggression toward humans, leash and barrier reactivity, as well as various forms of anxiety, insecurity and social challenges with humans or dogs. For behaviors that pose a risk to humans or other dogs, Mo is committed to providing an assessment that is honest and promotes realistic expectations for the owners.

First step: An initial assessment with foundational work to thoroughly evaluate the dog and develop an understanding of environment and the human dynamic as it relates to the dog. This session will last up to 2 hours and it is done in the home. Cost is $175.00

Next Steps: Mo will write up a recommended game plan with options for the owner related to time and financial investment. Depending on the dog and her/his home, the game plan may involve in-home work, a day care program, or Mo may recommend a board & train which involves staying with Mo 24/7 for at least 2 weeks, sometimes longer. Most often, the dog will require some combination of strategies and the program will be stretched over time.

Fees for rehabilitation programs depend on the issue, the dog, the humans and what plan, or combination of plans, are required. Mo will design a strategy that is as budget-friendly as possible, with the welfare of the dog (and humans) taking priority. Call or text Mo (502-909-2759) to talk about your dog and learn more.

ONE & DONE

Some dog owners just need a little bit of support to get themselves on track with their dog.  Those folks don’t want to get caught up on “programs” and commitments if they feel that they can achieve their goals with some insights, suggestions and direction from a professional.

Mo will come to your home for a single visit to help you problem solve, strategize and to coach you as needed to meet your goals.

The One & Done session costs $175 and usually lasts 2 hours, sometimes more.

As with all services, Mo will continue to be available to you for calls, texts and to connect you to video and other resources that will support your efforts at no charge.

VIDEO COACHING

Not available for Rehab cases unless Mo has already worked with your dog

If we are too far from each other to do in-home sessions and you feel like you can get the job done with support and coaching along the way, Mo will be happy to FaceTime, Zoom, etc. to coach you via video calls. 

Calls will last up to one hour.  The cost of each call is $50.  Packages with discount may be available on a pre-paid basis.
