THE HELP CENTER
St. Cloud, FL Certified Dog Trainer
WHAT IS YOUR TRAINING METHODOLOGY?
I use positive reinforcement techniques that are science-based to get you the results you're looking for. Dogs are driven by rewards - praise and food. Rewards naturally motivate a dog to do what you want it to do. We focus on what you DO want them to do and reward them when they do it. This in return, will get you the results that you want force-free and fear-free.
DO YOU USE PUNISHMENT OR FEAR BASED TRAINING?
Studies demonstrate that punishment/fear-based training does more harm than good, so we steer clear of this. We do not use choke, prong or shock collars either.
DO YOU OFFER ONLINE/VIRTUAL SESSIONS?
Yes, and we encourage them! Due to COVID-19, we are not currently offering in person sessions. We only do online sessions for the time being.
WHICH TYPES OF ANIMALS DOES THE ANIMAL MAVEN TRAIN?
We focus mostly on dogs, but we also offer services for cats and parrots! Our positive reinforcement training can technically be applied to any animal though! Even humans ;)
ARE YOU INSURED?
Yes! We are fully insured!
WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?
The Animal Maven requires 48 hours’ notice to reschedule lessons via the online scheduler. If you do not reschedule via the online scheduler within the listed time period, and do not show up for an appointment, you will forfeit that appointment.
DO YOU OFFER REFUNDS?
We do not offer refunds. However, you have the ability to reschedule your appointments as long as they are cancelled & rescheduled 48 hours ahead of time.
CAN YOU GUARANTEE RESULTS?
No. Any reputable trainer cannot and will not guarantee results. I can teach you and give you the tools and set you up for success but each pet is different and behavior can be unpredictable.
