Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions2021-02-15T05:00:38+00:00
Do you work with aggressive dogs?2020-06-16T11:43:03+00:00

Yes. We work with any breed, any dog, any problem. We specialize in working with
the most challenging of dogs. If you are struggling with your dog’s behavior, please
don’t give up, we can help you.

Do you use treats to train dogs?2020-06-12T13:39:58+00:00

Yes, we are balanced trainers — which means that we don’t adhere to one
specific method. We work with your dog to find out what motivates them. One size
does not fit all — dogs are unique in their likes and dislikes, just like humans. Some
dogs aren’t very food motivated, and prefer play, toys, praise, etc.

Do you offer refunds or guarantees?2020-06-12T13:41:38+00:00

All of our sessions are non-refundable and have a 24-hour cancellation policy.
We schedule out our dog training sessions weeks in advance and ask that you are
committed to the time that you agree on. Dog training is a process of teamwork and
collaboration, and due to the many variables involved in the training of your dog,
including owner commitment, consistency, and doing your homework, it would be
unethical for us to offer a guarantee. We can get dogs to behave for us all day long,
but that doesn’t do us any good if they aren’t behaving for you! Our goal is to train

YOU to train your dog. If you are consistent and do your homework, you will see
breakthrough results and amazing transformations.

What kind of dog training methodology do you subscribe to?2020-06-12T13:43:02+00:00

We do not “side” ourselves with any one approach, as every dog is different. We will
choose a path and use the tools that are right for you and your dog. We will show you
how to properly use these training tools. Unfortunately, there is a lot of
mis-information and plenty of opinions out there when it comes to dog training.
Beware of any trainer that tells you that their way is the only way to train a dog!

Why choose K9 Mania Dog Training vs. Group Classes?2020-06-12T13:44:18+00:00

At K9 Mania Dog Training,, 100% of our focus is on you and your dog and your unique
situation. We look at the entire picture and address the behavioral problems from a
holistic standpoint. Dogs are intelligent, unique individuals with specific needs…a one
sized fits all approach to training does not work. Many times what goes on inside of
your home results in problems outside of the home which is why we conduct our
Initial Evaluation in YOUR home. We identify and work through behavioral and
environmental issues in your everyday environment and in a setting where we can
control when to introduce other distractions (i.e. other dogs, people, children, etc.).
Most problem behavior is NOT best addressed in a group setting with many
distractions, other dogs with behavioral issues or one trainer for multiple dogs
without the ability to customize a program or dedicate the time needed to address
your specific issues. For more information, please ​contact us​.

How long will it take to train my dog?2020-06-12T13:46:38+00:00

Every dog is different. Every behavior issue is different. Every owner is different.
There are no quick fixes when it comes to training your dog! We work with you to set
appropriate expectations based on your dog, and your unique situation. The amount
of commitment, consistency, and work that you put in is also a determining factor. If
you put 50% in, you will get 50% out. Training your dog is something that should be a
constant and continual process throughout your dog’s life. Additionally, If a trainer
promises you that they can fix a behavior issue in 1-session or 1-week…they old
saying is “if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is…”

How long does each dog training session last?2020-06-12T13:47:21+00:00

Your initial session with K9 Mania Dog Training is roughly 1.5 to 2 hours (longer if
there are 3 or more dogs). We spend a great deal of time analyzing the problem

behaviors and your goals. From there, we determine a training program that will
outline how many sessions are needed. Each session after the initial will last roughly
1 hour depending on your dog’s ability ​that day​ and what is being taught. Remember,
you as an owner, must be fully invested in this learning process to get the results you

Will my Dog remember me after their Board & Train Program?2020-06-12T13:48:07+00:00

Of course! Consider this like sending your child to college. We are like the cool
teachers, but you’ll always be your dogs #1. We understand that it’s difficult to send
your dog away for 3+ weeks, so you will get 3 updates per week, with pictures and

Will my Young Puppy Be Full Trained When it Comes Home?2020-06-12T13:48:49+00:00

Training your dog is something that should be a constant and continual process in
your dog’s life. By starting your dog off young, you are setting a good foundation to
build on top of. Your dog, much like a young child, will go through development
changes, and you’ll need to stay consistent with training / continue to advance as
your dog matures. Rest assured, we can help you through this process.
