I love dogs. Always have and always
will. I enjoy training them. And because of my affection and admiration
for them, I think that training should be as much fun as it is
Charlie, Jake, Ron, and Sadie
Having said that, I believe that some
trainers, probably the majority of them, love dogs so much that they
truly believe dogs should (and can) be trained with positive
reinforcement techniques alone. In other words, they believe that dogs
can be trained effectively and reliably without any corrections
whatsoever. This may be true in a perfect world, but unfortunately, we
and our dogs live in the real one.
My techniques are designed to give
you a well behaved and well trained dog in real world situations. The
training takes place in your home and neighborhood and even in parks if
they are nearby. In other words, I train your dog through the
distractions he is likely to see in everyday life.

Many training facilities offer
beginning, intermediate, and advanced training courses. With my
training, I take your dog from untrained to advanced in as little as 4
weeks. In nearly every case (with the exception of extremely
aggressive dogs) I can have your dog walking with you at heel, off
leash, reliably, in less than 4 weeks.
So when you're shopping for a trainer
(a good idea) be sure to ask what kinds of results you can expect, and
how long it should take to get them. Also ask if the trainer is willing
to show you how well trained his or her dog is in any environment --
for instance, in your front yard. That's what we do at Rapid Results.
And we do it for free!

With the Rapid
Results program all aspects of basic obedience are covered. Your
dog will sit, heel, down, stay and come on recall, off leash,
reliably, after four weeks of training. Other behavioral problems
like excessive barking, digging, jumping up on people, and attacking
the door when the mailman comes, are also covered. This course is
designed to transform your dog and to reassure him
of his proper place in your family.
Many dogs, without proper
guidance (knowing the house rules and understanding and complying with
basic obedience commands) will shoot for the stars and try to establish
themselves as the leader of the pack. It is this pack mentality --
the dog's natural tendency to try to rise in the ranks, or in some
cases, his confusion about just what's expected of him -- that
often makes life with our valued and loved pets so difficult.
