Current Special — Training packages with Sandra Harvey MSN

Cost: $167.50

Receive 5 (preferably) consecutive days of dog training. This package will address general manners such as mat work, sit, down, leash walking and foundation building. This 5 day program can also be used for a pre-discussed single problem you may have.

The trainer will be using Relationship building games, which strengthens the foundation to teaching all commands and manners.

Call us now to reserve this special: 702-250-0190 or 702-558-5689. If your dog will be staying all day for day care, our normal day care charges will apply in addition to program cost. No day care will be charged if your dog is just coming for the sessions only. (Some exclusions may apply.)

About Sandie:

My Background is in human medicine. I started out in the 80’s and since have obtained many college degrees. Owing to the fact that I use, “Science Based Methods” I believe my Masters in Nursing Science has provided a very strong foundation in (animal) behavior, learning theory and psychology.

Early on during my novice phase, my heart dog Max and I received 2 AKC Obedience and 1 Rally title. I belonged to the Vegas Valley Dog Obedience Club, volunteering and learning from other professionals. My formal professional training started at the CATCH Canine Trainers Academy, a 2-year training program. Since the development of Vegas Shepherd Rescue here in Las Vegas, I volunteer as a foster taking on some of the physical and behavioral problem dogs. I am a forever student with my current goal to obtain my certification as a Dog Behavior Consultant. This process is about a five-year course of learning. There are very few individuals that have earned that certificate in Las Vegas.

The techniques I use focus on rewarding desirable behaviors and changing the dog’s emotional state. During our session I will not use intimidation, fear based techniques, or punishment. Many times we will start by developing play and basic obedience to nurture the “learning to learn” habits within your dog.

This is my passion and my heart, this is not just a job.
