Come Over Rover Training - A Personalized Approach
The COR Training Philosophy
Come Over Rover trainer Tara uses a practical approach to behaviour modification and training that centers on helping you build and maintain a healthy relationship with your dog.
Tara believes that confident, calm dogs are not only the happiest dogs, but also the most willing and successful training participants. Her customized training plans focus heavily on promoting clear communication and building a positive bond between human and dog. Laying these excellent foundations is top priority for living in harmony with your Rover and reaching your training goals.
Rather than treating symptoms, her methods work to address and overcome underlying causes, such as fear, lack of focus, and communication breakdowns. She'll help you motivate your dog into a self-assured and cooperative family member!
The Training Process
You will be asked to complete an online, in-depth form that goes over your Rover's history, his day-to-day life, and the training goals you'd like to reach.
Your trainer will review your form and contact you with instructions on paying your $40 training deposit and how to set up your Phone Consultation.
During your Phone Consultation we'll go over your form together, gather any further necessary information, define your training goals, and set up your Initial Training Session.
Your Initial Training Session will be two hours and we generally meet in your home. This session is used to gather real-life information and to begin establishing trust and comfort between your Rover and trainer. The session will include lots of conversation and hand-on instruction. Your session will be followed up with an email summary of the session, including detailed instructions and next steps.
Your trainer will contact you after a short period of time to review your progress, answer any questions you may have, and discuss how you'd like to move forward,
Subsequent training sessions may take place in your home, at the daycare, or out in public. They generally last one to two hours. In certain circumstances your trainer may ask that other people and pets from your household attend. Your trainer may also find it beneficial to interact one on one with your dog. Short-term Board & Trains of one night or more may also be suggested, as well as a series of daycare sessions, or others types of exercises, such as a group walks or supervised play dates.
Each training session will wrap up with instructions and a review of your goals and progress.
It's important to us that you feel comfortable, confident and positive about your training experience and we welcome questions and feedback at any time. Your trainer will always be available by email or by a scheduled phone call for questions and support during your training process and up to one month after your last session.
