|Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why shouldn’t I just go to a big-name pet store or breed club and pay about $100 for dog training?
A: If you wanted a great steak dinner, would you go to a fast-food restaurant? Big pet store chains are all
about QUANTITY, not QUALITY. With Front Range K-9 Academy, you’re paying for the very best in
professional behavior modification and canine counseling. You're not paying for quantity-driven, large group
dog training classes.
Q: How much time will this take?
A: We offer private problem-solving sessions that may only take 2 - 3 sessions, or 8 to 10 week semi-private group classes.
Q: How much work do I have to do?
A: That depends on you and your dog. However, most owners find that if they work with their dog for at least 20
minutes, 2 times a day, they will see results.
Remember: The team consists of 3 players - you, your dog, and your trainer. YOU control 2/3 of the team.
Q: How long do sessions last?
A: Sessions generally last from 45 to 90 minutes, with one hour being the average.
Q: How often do we need to see the trainer?
A: Weekly sessions will give you the fastest results, but in today’s world, we know schedules can be hectic,
so we try to be as flexible as possible.
Q: How much will this cost?
A: While it's impossible to estimate cost until we meet your dog, we have services from $40 to $250/session. Our goal is to find the
service that works for you and your individual needs.
Ask yourself this: How much does a waste of time & money cost? Amateur dog trainers usually charge around $100 per 6 week
course. They do not offer specialized behavior modification methods. Imagine paying good money and then your dog is more
aggressive, destructive, obnoxious, and disobedient than before.
Over 50% of the dogs we see each year have already been to large group training classes with an
amateur dog trainer.
Another 30% of the dogs we see each year have been to other private trainers or board and trains, and in some cases
have spent thousands of dollars on methods that just don't work.
Training a few skills without a good foundation doesn't give reliable, predictable results!
Q: What Methods of Behavior Modification do you use?
A: We use a progressive training method - focusing on reliable, predictable results. Our trainers are well versed in both traditional
and positive reinforcement methods. Our on-staff behaviorist, Jennifer Hime, has used and honed our method over 27 years of
experience, with over 7000 dogs. The methods are proven. The results are reliable. Click here to read more about our methods.
