Private Training





About the Course

Private lessons are perfect for those of you with busy schedules, dogs who have one or two specific issues to work on or have difficulty being around other dogs in a group setting. Not all dogs are suited for group lessons.

Consultations can be set up for common behavior issues such as reactivity, poor impulse control, fear and nervousness, jumping, pulling on lead and poor recalls. Whatever your concerns are together we'll develop a training plan that fits your lifestyle and progresses at you and your dog’s pace.  Included are helpful handouts and a follow up email to recap each session, answer questions, address concerns and help you stay on track to meet your goals.

Your initial consult includes the review of your dogs Behavioral Assessment Form, personal time at your home (or another agreed on location) and a follow up email to sumarize the training plan we've agreed on after the in person consult.

Depending on your needs we offer one hour follow up sessions as well as discounted pre-paid packages of 4 or 6 one hour follow ups..

If you would like to book a consult please fill out the form below and request a Behavioral Assessment Form. We'll send you the form along with the details of how private sessions are set up and our fees. Once you've completed the form and returned that to us we'll reach out to book your initial assessment.
