Training with Fresh Start
- Training services are available in your home or at a location near your home in the following areas: Marin County and San Francisco.
Other arrangements may be made for East Bay and Sonoma County clients.
- Begin training early – around 12 weeks of age, depending on the breed, is the ideal age to start working with your puppy.
- Your dog can be trained to run next to a bicycle and/or walk on a treadmill so that you have options for exercising your pet even with a busy schedule.
- I can help you and your dog tackle various different training tasks including basic commands, socialization and behavioral problems.
- I can work with you and your dog to ensure the safety of your feline and canine companions. Additionally, I can work with you to safely integrate new canine family members into your household.
- I provide in-home consultations prior to your canine companion's arrival to ensure his/her safety and comfort.
- Training programs are tailored to specifically address you and your dog's needs.

- Canine guests sleep in their own personal crate/pen located in my home.
- Compatible guests are matched up for plenty of play and social interaction in one of four large play areas filled with safe, durable toys.
- Gina, who has worked with me for over 5 years, looks after the "kids" when I am providing training services off site.

- Each guest receives a bath prior to going home with a 3 night or longer stay.
- Dogs receive cookies before going to bed and appropriate treats during the day.
