First Friend Canine Consulting, llc - Wappingers Falls, NY
Hello. I’m Jean Kolor, and I specialize in training family dogs for busy families.
Whether you’re juggling work and kids or a career and commute, time for training is hard to come by.
That’s why my private dog training services and dog training classes are all about convenience and results.
I can even train your dog for you.
My clients are busy people, so my dog training services are all about convenience. Group training classes are easy to get to and held on evenings and weekends.
Need something even easier? I'll come to your home for private training. And if you're really busy I'll even train your dog for you while you're at work or running errands.
When you're busy, every bit of time counts. To make the most of your time I keep training classes small, with individual training plans for each dog so you can focus on the results you need.
Or allow me to train your dog for you via my private training service. An experienced professional at the other end of the leash means the sharpest and quickest training results possible.
Peace of Mind
All my training is soundly based in current behavioral science and I use only positive-based family friendly dog training techniques. I want you to enjoy your training results guilt-free.
With nearly 30 years of experience in animal training and husbandry, including 22 years as a guide dog instructor, you'll know you and your dog are in good hands.
