Training Walks

The Training walk lasts for 40 min and includes shortened training notes.

The walk is a private training service where your Mindful Trainer will practice the basic obedience commands: Heel, Look, and Sit/Stay with your dog.

Training Walk: $40 each

Package 1: $150- 4 training walks

Package 2: $300- 8 training walks

Package 3: $450- 12 training walks

Remote Training Sessions

Remote Sessions $60

Remote training sessions are great for beginning training by introducing basic obedience training and for select behaviors and commands.

Your Mindful Trainer will detail (in the consultation) if remote training is an option to support you and your dog. This option is fantastic for families who are outside of Mindful Training’s physical service radius, or for those who wish to avoid travel fees if living outside of Austin.

Constructional Aggression Treatment Procedure

C.A.T. (Constructional Aggression Treatment): This is a behavior modification practice that helps dogs who are leash aggressive, or fear-based leash aggressive, learn how to be calmer and less agitated by seeing other dogs on leash and, in turn, more responsive to their handler.

Reverse CAT: This practice is similar to the regular C.A.T. procedure; however, it addresses and treats dogs who are excited and leash frustrated (rather than aggressive or fear-based aggression) to be less excited and reactive to more responsive to their handler instead.

Each C.A.T. and Reverse C.A.T. is $40 additional for the training session fee.
