Frequently Asked Questions

I just booked with you, and I got an email that includes the training tool requirements, but I am not sure where to get them or which options are better.

Don't worry I did the shopping for  you. Since starting New Moon Pet Training, I have tried many brands and styles for multiple training products. I have tested all products listed in my store for durability and ease of use, and I have tried to select ecofriendly options when possible. You can buy individually or select a package to get everything you need at a discounted rate. Check out the store with the link below.

Is my pet too old to be trained?

It's never too late to start training with your pet. I understand that older dogs present their own unique challenges to training, and I am prepared to help you overcome them. Whether you just adopted an older dog or you have had them for years, I am here to help you have a dog with a pawsitive leash on life!

What is your approach to pet training?

I am a Karen Pryor Certified Training Partner, and I am trained in clicker training. Clicker training is based on the science of operant conditioning to capture and shape behaviors and uses positive reinforcement. Positive reinforcement has been scientifically proven to create more reliable behaviors with long-lasting results. To train new behaviors, we use food reinforcers since this is a primary reinforcer for your dog. Click the link below to learn more about why we use a clicker and why we utilize food reinforcement.

Which of your services is right for me?

If you have a puppy or new dog with mild behavior issues and would like a good overall course to teach your dog good foundational behaviors for good manners and obedience, our Basic Manners and Obedience classes are for you. If you need help with specific behavior issues, such as resource guarding, potty training issues, puppy biting, chewing furniture, etc., check our our Bad Dog to Good Dog class. If you have a cat, check our our Kitty Training classes. If you still aren't sure, reach out to us and we can help you get scheduled.

Are cats trainable? Is it worth it to train my cat?

Yes, absolutely! Clicker training uses the science of operant conditioning which is how all animals learn and will absolutely work for your cat with long lasting results. If you have a cat who darts out the door or you can never find when you need them, then teaching your cat to sit and stay when you go out the door or to come when called may be a good option for you. Give us a call to find out if training is a good option for you and your cat.
