MEET YOUR PUP'S TUTOR
My name is Lori Chamberland. I am the head of education at Dr. Marty Becker's Fear Free initiative, which helps prevent and reduce stress in pets. Before joining the Fear Free staff, I was the Director of Karen Pryor Academy and lectured to dog training audiences on the ClickerExpo faculty for several years. I am a skilled positive reinforcement trainer and a passionate teacher who makes learning fun for both you and your dog!
I am owned by two border collies, Blink and Brio. I enjoy competing in the sport of dog agility and taught agility classes for many years.
My training methods are all rooted in positive reinforcement and include the use of treats or other things your dog finds desirable, such as toys. I often use a clicker as a clear communication tool to mark desirable behavior. I will not use any aversive devices or punishment-based methods in your dog's training. These often exacerbate a problem or create a new problem.
Yes! One of the advantages of Your Pup's Tutor is that I come to your home. I serve the towns of Hudson, Marlborough, Stow, Maynard, Bolton, Berlin, and Sudbury, Massachusetts. It is possible to serve towns outside that area, but additional fees will apply.
Yes! I work around a schedule that's convenient for YOU - most of my appointments are on nights and weekends.
Each training session lasts about an hour. My goal is to empower YOU to be able to train your dog. Most clients make significant progress in just one or two sessions, and then are able to take it from there on their own!
Initial consultation: $150
Follow-ups: $125 per hour
Each appointment takes place in the comfort of your home.
