Pre-Training Consultation

Prior to training, a Shadowlee Canine Certified Trainer will meet with you and your dog to conduct an evaluation. During the evaluation we can gather information about your dog's behavior, previous training, and personality type. We will determine what needs to be accomplished and discuss how training can meet the needs of your family and dog.
