NOT YOUR AVERAGE DOG LADY
Marine Veteran, Online K9 Educator and Obedience Trainer
As a K9 professional, Xena is constantly seeking self-education to improve a dog’s quality of life. She wants to help every person achieve the life they imagined sharing with a dog by making dog knowledge, common knowledge!
Xena’s Pack serves busy people who want the best care for their animals in their absence and seek precise obedience and education.
Yes! While there’s no trainer in the world who can actually guarantee eradication of anxiety and aggression, obedience training gives the owner the power to eliminate, reduce and avoid triggers for your dog as well as give your dog a task to maintain instead of reacting to their triggers.
An e-collar is an amazing training tool that can be used on all breeds, all ages and all sizes. The sensation is similar to a tens unit, often used in physical therapy. It works by communication with your dog in low and high distraction environments.
There is a reason that the top law enforcement agencies, military, and top federal agencies: patrol, detection, and search and rescue dogs are trained using e-collars!
No. We have all of our clients feel the collar sensation so they know first hand that it is not painful. We only use the e-collar to communicate and humanely correct and will teach YOU how to also do this.
Not necessarily! Many of our clients find with consistency, they soon don’t require the e-collar to maintain obedience although we always encourage its use in high distraction environments.
No. We teach your dog that wearing the e-collar means fun things are coming! Many dogs dance and get very excited when they see the e-collar is going to be put on. This is achieved by making positive associations for your dog with its use and training.
Private sessions are offered at local parks, our facility or we can come to your home!
Our training options range from single sessions, to 4 and 8 week programs as well as a 1-Week and 2-Week Board and Train.
E-Collar training can start at 5 months old.
For puppies under 5 months, we use other training methods and can start your pup out as soon as the day they come home! The earlier you start training, the sooner you have a smooth transition with the new addition.
Great! We train all breeds regardless of their size!
It’s never too late to do professional training! We’ve worked with 14 year old dogs too!
