Investment and Services

I’m worth it! 


Investing in SleepyDogTraining is a wise investment, and the benefits are long-lasting. What is it worth to you, to have a relationship based on trust and respect with a stable, trustworthy, well-behaved dog?

SleepyDogTraining’s most popular session is the 2+ hour intensive training session*.  I dig deep to understand your dog, and then work with you and your dog to directly address your individual needs.  To learn more about what to expect your training to be like, call me!

*These training sessions typically last for approximately two hours.  Depending on your pet’s needs and energy level, I will stay a little longer if necessary.  (Dog training is an art AND a science, so a little bit of flexibility after that two-hour mark is helpful.)
Keep in mind that if you have an issue with your dog, and you do not see a training session that matches what you need, call or email! Help is just a phone call, a voice message, a text message,or an email away.

    I just recently got off the phone with you about my dog Koda. I work at Technical high school and we have career day once a year. Unfortunately I think it’s to soon but we are holding one this Friday, November 21st in the afternoon. Maybe you would like a table? If not this year maybe next year? Let me know if you think maybe you would be interested?!


    • hi daelene, i would have loved to come, but i was booked on that date.if you let me know way ahead of time i’d love to participate in 2015!

  2. Fredrick paschall

    Do yall do personal protection training?

    • no, we do not offer ppt at this time, frederic.

  3. Judith

    Is your training based on positive reinforcement or the use.of electronic collars? Do you come to south Jersey? I have two rescue dogs, a male fox hound mix and female Argentine Dogo. They both know basic commands. I want them to learn manners on greeting visitors, not reacting to other dogs while walking and my Dogo needs to learn how to respect the life if my Bengal feline.

    • hi judith, i have a very expansive “tool box,” meaning i train using the tools your individual dogs need, keeping in mind what you, the owner feels comfortable with as well.

      i have had good results with dogs who have had similar issues that you describe your dogs as having. i’d be happy to work with you and your dogs to resolve these issues.

      and yes, i travel to south jersey to train.

      please check out the contact sleepydog page and call or email me with any/all of your questions and concerns.

      thx for contacting sleepydog llc! i look forward to hearing from you soon.
