MEET, GREET, AND EVALUATION / FEES
Evaluation Fee is $400 depending on location and if the dog has any aggressive tendencies. Programs can be between $500 to $2500 on a case-by-case basis for behavioral issues. If you are requesting training for Protection, Narcotic Detection or Service Dogs then cost will be higher. Meet, Greet and Evaluation Appointments are at client's home. If Client decides to enroll their dog in one of many programs available, you will find David Scott's methods work immediately without treats or voice commands. All communication is 100% body language, energy and sounds. Many issues are resolved within two to three sessions.
REGARDING BOARD AND TRAINING PROGRAMS
Board and Training does not work, and they use shock collars also called e-collars as their main source of training including keeping your dog in a kennel or crate most of the time. Most places will charge you from $2000 to $3500 and the training will not take hold because all the dogs' issues are in the home. Dogs will normally behave better away from home rather than in their own territory or environment. All dog behavioral issues are due to human miscommunication and not understanding how a dog's mind works or how a dog preceives it's environment. Many dogs with socialization issues are due to a lack of learning the proper protocol in meeting other dogs or people. The only time that I personally will take a dog for training in my home with my other five dogs is due to the owner being the problem in caring out my Homework assignments learning to communicate correctly with their dog. This is usually with dogs with very severe aggression, fear or domination issues. It usually only takes me approximately five days to rehabilitate a dog's behavior then I must spend a few sessions with the owner in teaching them how to continue the control and communication with their dog to insure permanent behavioral change. In my forty years' experience, I have never had a client call me back for more training. This is due to my teaching the human owners dog psychology and learning how to communicate with their dogs if they ever have a change of attitude or a new issue develops because they have received the training to correct the behavior immediately on their own.
