How Much Training Is Too Much Training For Your Dog? - Dogtime
The way I generally arrive at determining how much dog training services cost is here:
Everyone at PAWS Training Centers is committed to being completely honest and forthcoming with all observations to give you a realistic expectation of what will be accomplished during training. We will listen and work with you diligently and take time to answer any questions throughout the training process. We certainly want to see continued success and progress. We also know that there are no absolutes with dog training. How well your dog learns and how much he improves will depend on many factors including his level of socialization, genetic predisposition, and how much time you train with him. Our ultimate goal at PAWS Training Centers is to give you the tools to establish clear communication, mutual respect, and the necessary confidence that is crucial between you and your dog. We will show you how to understand your dog, how to teach your dog to understand you, and how to remain consistent in every situation. The trainers at PAWS Training Centers believe that building this close relationship with your dog is accomplished through constant, positive interaction thereby creating a healthy foundation on which even the most difficult challenges can be resolved. Participation in our training program does not guarantee certification. If, at any time the trainer feels the dog is not well suited for assistance work due to behavior or lack of response with training, the handler will be promptly informed.
Hiring a trainer that can pinpoint problems and teach you how to better work with your dog is going to make your life much easier in the long run.

Dog Training: Puppy and Adult Dog Training Classes | PetSmart
It can be very difficult for us to accurately quote training prices without actually seeing your dog and performing an evaluation of the situation and personality we are dealing with. We understand that this sounds vague, however we are dealing with unique situations every day with each client and their dog. If you can relate to contacting a mechanic over the phone and asking them how much it will cost to fix your car, we hope you can understand the situation we are in. It’s impossible to accurately diagnose a problem with a vehicle over the phone. The costs could vary dramatically. If your car goes clunk-clunk-clunk, it could be a very small and inexpensive part that needs to be fixed, or it could be something costly that needs an entire overhaul.During phase number two, the goal is to begin phasing out your training aid (remote dog training collar). In phase number 1, we use the dog training collar on a regular basis to regain attention and maintain our rules. Now in phase two we begin to reduce our dependence on the dog training collar and introduce consistency via variable reinforcement. You may or may not need your dog training collar, but we want to teach the dog that you are still in control even if the perception of the dog is that you are not. This phase will last between 6 – 12 weeks on average, and again some situations will require you to stick with phase number two for longer than average. It’s also not uncommon as dogs mature and age to have to revert back into phase one training again for several weeks depending on how your dog’s performance and behavior is. When your dog is capable of performing commands without the need for reinforcement for approximately 6 weeks, then your dog is very likely to be reliable without their training aid present. We are ultimately looking to have your dog learn how to filter our distractions entirely. When this is achieved, your dog is much less likely to act out in an unwanted manner because of distractions.
